Overview: 2015 Subaru Outback

On April 17, Subaru plans to unveil the newest version of the Outback at the New York International Auto Show. To give us a taste in the meantime, and to raise the suspense, Subaru has just released a preview of the car's front end. Not surprisingly, the hit of the Subaru line-up bears a strong resemblance to the Legacy concept, which was presented among others at the Montreal Auto Show in January.

We know very little about the 2015 model, since apart from the photo, Subaru is not revealing anything yet. However, it can be assumed that most of the changes will be related to the vehicle's aesthetics. Even though the tail lights are not visible in the photo, they should stretch wide and look away from the vehicle's height. The vehicle's profile is high, as it is today, to perpetuate the image of a robust and adventurous vehicle.

The interior should also be updated with soft and comfortable materials. Hopefully the infotainment system will also be getting a facelift. The current model is effective, but the interface definitely has room for improvement.

Under the hood, the current 2.5 and 3.6-litre engines will probably be renewed, as their power is sufficient. However, the 3.6-litre five-speed automatic transmission, and the 2.5-litre manual transmission could be replaced by the revised Lineartronic CVT with continuously variable reports. It also has the advantage of the lower fuel consumption offered by the six-cylinder engine. Moreover, as it comes with an efficient and easy to use manual mode, it would be a compromised for fans of the manual transmission. The family is still sold in base 2.5i, Premium and Limited models.

The 2015 Subaru Outback will surely be equipped with the company's new generation of safety systems called EyeSight. It will now support adaptive cruise control, pre-crash braking and lane change warning. This system has received a very good rating from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).
