2014 Subaru Outback features improved suspension and design

Article by Anita Panait, on October 7, 2013

The Subaru Outback has been known for its combination of comfort, good, interior space, excellent on-road handling and for its off-road capability and ground clearance. Now, the 2014 model of this vehicle boasts of improved handling thanks to revised suspension components and the latest variant of Subaru’s Vehicle Dynamics Control.

The 2014 Subaru Outback also boasts of a revised design for both the interior and exterior. But what makes the 2014 Subaru Outback more appealing is the first marriage of the popular 2.0-litre Boxer diesel engine and a Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission), resulting to significant improvements in driveability, fuel economy and emissions. With the new engine and gearbox combo, the 2014 Subaru Outback is able to return 44.8 mpg and 166g/km carbon dioxide on the combined cycle.

The 2014 Outback now features body-colored cladding, replacing the black that its predecessor uses.

Customers could now choose from a wider range of colors, including two new ones: Deep Sea Blue Pearl and Dark Grey Metallic. The 2014 Subaru Outback also features larger fog lamps and gloss black finished front headlamps, providing it with greater road presence than before.

The alloy wheels come in a gunmetal finish as standard. The upgraded cabin of the latest Outback now features a liquid crystal instrument cluster display and new materials for a number of dashboard elements.  It also features black metallic panels, with the instruments moved to improve user-friendliness.

Pricing for the 2014 Subaru Outback 2.0D SX Lineartronic strarts at £31,495 while the manual version is priced at £29,995.
