What’s New In The Subaru Outback 2021

What is the difference between the 2020 and 2021 Outback?


The 2021 all-new Subaru Outback has arrived and brings with it a combined salute to all the elements that made it the most advanced, most capable and safest car in the brand’s history, while adding a few extra benefits we’re sure you’ll find more than just a little impressive. If you were on the verge of making a decision, then we’re sure this article will help seal the deal and then look forward to having you visit one of our branches and leaving in your very own all-new Subaru Outback.


What’s new?


The all-new Subaru Outback debuts a number of new technologies such as Hands Free Tailgate function, DriverFocusTM Distraction Mitigation System and a slick new 11.6-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen interface. Plus, take the curves with added visibility, be aware of passengers in the backseat and remind all your passengers that safety starts with being strapped in. Let’s take a look at the most prominent additions when comparing the 2020 Outback vs 2021 Outback.


Steering Responsive LED Headlights:
Now standard on all trim levels, one of the 2021 Subaru Outback changes means you get added visibility when driving at night with the Steering Responsive Headlight System that aims the headlight beams in the direction that you are traveling in (making a big difference on curved roads).


Rear Seat Reminder:
For added security and extra peace of mind, the Rear Seat Reminder is a system that reminds the driver to check the rear seats before exiting the vehicle. Having detected that there are passengers in the rear, the driver is reminded of their presence before exiting. This isn’t to say you would forget your own children or pets, but we all know what it’s like to have a day when there is a lot going on in your mind. A little reminder when you’re having ‘one of those days’ might be just what you needed.


Seat Belt Reminders:

Subaru has always been a bastion of safety — both in the technological innovation for braking systems and crumple zones — but within the cabin too. Just as the detection system is aware of rear-seat passengers that it reminds you about, the same technology prompts passengers to fasten their seatbelts.


Let’s talk torque!


The Subaru outback Field and Touring versions are both offered with a 2.5-litre direct injection Boxer® Engine. The engine is mated to a lightweight Lineartronic® CVT transmission and delivers 138kW at 5,800rpm with maximum torque being 245Nm at between 3,400 and 4,600rpm.
