2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium mountain bike adventure

I have to 'fess up early. I quite like Subaru. I owned a 2004 Forester for six years as my daily commuter, outdoor gear hauler and surfing wagon. Like the Forester I owned, the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium is a wagon design. It's a beefed-up version of the Subaru Liberty wagon, with greater ground clearance and slightly more off-road moxie...

2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack 2.0TDI v 2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Comparison

Read the article here. Australian buyers have been bashing down the doors at dealers, rushing madly to secure the keys (or keyless fobs) to large SUVs over the past decade without so much as a backward glance. The harsh reality, though, is most of those buyers don’t really need a large SUV...

2015 Subaru Outback Review (MY16)

Read the article here. The Subaru Outback was launched in 1994 and was then, essentially, extra ride height and plastic cladding added to a Liberty wagon. Now in its fifth generation, the 2015 Subaru Outback is a standalone model (there is no Liberty wagon anymore) and it promises to be the best version yet...

2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack 2.0TDI v 2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Comparison

The Volkswagen Passat Alltrack and the Subaru Outback are now more evenly matched than ever before. Subaru has always had this segment to itself though, but now theres a proper battle taking place.

Skoda Octavia Scout 135TDI v Subaru Outback 2.0D Premium : Comparison Review

The Skoda Octavia Scout arrived in March aiming to steal a slice of the all-terrain, all-wheel-drive premium wagon pie from Subaru Outback. A niche pie that the Outback has and continues to own in Australia, as demonstrated by recent record-breaking sales - despite the less-than-threatening opposition presented by rivals such as, well, Skoda’s own Superb 4x4 Outdoor...

Ford Territory TS diesel v Subaru Outback 2.0D Premium : Comparison review

The Ford Territory and Subaru Outback have a few things in common. They’re both quite car-like due to the fact they share their DNA with sedans, they’re both widely recognised nameplates, and they’ve both been either updated (Territory) or entered a new generation (Outback) in the past few months...

2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium review

We bought our Outback at end of 2015, and our first main concern was seat height as we are both elderly. We previously owned a Statesman and also a small Mazda 2 hatch and while they were good for a long time, we found them hard to get in and out of. The Subaru Outback completely ticks that box as we find it exactly the right height...

2016 Subaru Outback 3.6r Review

The Subaru Outback 3.6R is one of the best cars I have driven. It has a lot of power, nice ride hight with very car like handling. The amount of features on offer here is extensive. The amount of buttons on the steering wheel and dash are confronting but I had no issue using them when needed. The EyeSight system works extremely well...

2015 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium Review

This is a great car in every respect except the sat Nav. I'm on the road every day for work often going places I've never been before, needing to give people ETAs, trying to avoid traffic jams and accidents. All wonderful things that my old sit on the dashboard sat Nav could do and so can the Subaru built in with one key, fundamental, blindingly obvious, or in this case deafeningly obvious difference...

2015 Subaru Outback 3.6r Premium Review

A wonderfully fantastic car! On the road I consistently achieve 28+ mpg and whilst on my most recent road trip from Anchorage Alaska to Minnesota and back, (8,200 miles) I was able to squeak 30+.or more from a U.S. on several occasions... I thought that I would hate having the CVT but am now immensely fond of it! I weigh 300lbs, my son weighs 200lbs plus we had a combined total of about 300lbs of gear...
