The new Subaru Outback will go on sale in the UK from April 1 2015, priced from £27,995 to £32,995.
This fifth-generation of the Outback features a new exterior design, a more spacious and higher quality interior as well as a range of new safety equipment.
It remains in the same price bracket as the outgoing Subaru Outback.
A choice of two engines is available; a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel that produces 148bhp and a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre petrol unit with 163bhp.
The diesel engine will come with either a six-speed manual transmission or Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT transmission, but the petrol engine will only have the CVT gearbox.
Buyers have a choice of two trim levels; SE and SE Premium.
SE comes with automatic LED headlamps and headlamp washers, cruise control, Active Torque Vectoring, 17-inch alloys, heated front seats, electrically adjustable driver’s seat and privacy glass, as well as a 7.0-inch touch-screen infotainment system that comes with sat-nav, Smartphone connectivity and a rear view parking camera.
Petrol SE models also come with a start-stop system and Subaru Intelligent Drive, which allows drivers to choose between different engine modes.
SE Premium adds a sunroof, keyless entry and push-button start, 18-inch alloys, leather seats and a powered rear tailgate.
Standard on all Lineartronic Outbacks, Subaru's EyeSight safety technology is an autonomous emergency braking system that uses two cameras mounted in front of the rear view mirror to detect vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and other potential hazards ahead.
EyeSight includes pre-collision braking control and pre-collision throttle management, adaptive cruise control and lane departure and sway warning.
