Safety

All-round Visibility in the Outback

The Subaru Outback is designed to minimise blind spots, reduce line of sight obstructions and provide excellent visibility in all directions. Body pillar widths are minimised wherever possible, without compromising safety, to increase windscreen area and visibility. The front is designed to give you a better awareness of the Outback’s dimensions, while reversing visibility is given special attention for peace of mind in driveway situations and around busy school zones.

Second pair of eyes

Subaru’s renowned technologies include the unrivalled ‘Driver Assist system’ called EyeSight®. EyeSight® is your second pair of eyes that monitors the road ahead and recognises potentially dangerous driving situations. Using three-dimensional images captured by stereo cameras mounted behind the front windscreen, EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action. Depending on general visibility, it has a length of vision up to 130 metres. Apart from these built-in driver alert functions, EyeSight® will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision.

EyeSight® Driver Assist technology

Through more than 30 years of development and many real-world tests and evaluation, EyeSight® Driver Assist has been developed to respond to many individual market’s traffic conditions. With multiple incredible features, EyeSight® works with Subaru’s acclaimed collision avoidance and collision protection technologies, working together to provide improved protection for you and your family.

Subaru’s Driver Monitoring System

Watching out for you, this innovative system monitors the driver’s face for signs of fatigue or distraction and provides an audible and visual warning if it detects signs of fatigue or that the driver is not focused on the road ahead. The system is also clever enough to recognise the face of up to five registered drivers and will sync each driver's preferred settings including air-conditioning and MID display settings. Subaru Outback AWD Touring and Outback AWD Touring XT can also sync each driver's seat and door mirror position. Now that's clever!

Driver Monitoring System performance and capability dependent on environmental and technical conditions. Refer to Owner’s Manual for full details.

Subaru’s Vision Assist

Subaru’s Vision Assist is advanced technology that gives you greater awareness of the world around you.

Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) senses and alerts you when it detects an obstacle behind you that you’re at risk of hitting. Plus it can even step in to apply the brakes in the event that you don’t.

Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) features sensors that let you know when there’s something in a blind spot to help make lane changes safer.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) can warn you that another car is approaching when reversing out of a car space. Cutting-edge technology to help keep your family safe.

Safety without compromise

Safety starts with an improved chassis and a body frame reinforced to increase frontal, side and rear crash safety. Designated crumple zones are designed to direct impact energy away from the reinforced passenger safety cell, while SRS* airbags – including dual front, dual front side, dual curtain, driver’s knee and front passenger seat cushion are designed to protect occupants. The Boxer engine sits low in the engine bay, and is designed to help protect occupants by sliding below the cabin – not into it - in the event of a severe frontal collision.

*SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts.

Fun to drive


After a week cruising down city motorways, the Outback is restless for adventure. So, take it out of the city and take it off the beaten track. This is where some SUVs get nervous. This is where the Outback gets real.
With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-Mode, coupled with your choice of either Subaru's famous 2.5-litre Boxer engine and 2,000kg* braked towing capacity on the Subaru Outback AWD, Outback AWD Sport and Outback AWD Touring, or the 2.4-litre turbocharged Boxer Engine with impressive 2,400kg* braked towing capacity, the Outback is ready to take you there.

All wheels, all of the time

he sign of a true performer, is good balance. And when it comes to driving a Subaru, superior balance equals superior vehicle control. That’s why Subaru has built its reputation on its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain that deliver an innate sense of balance from the ground up. Symmetrical AWD delivers engine power to all four wheels simultaneously. Having power distributed across all four wheels, rather than two on conventional vehicles, gives you twice the traction capacity. So under acceleration there’s more grip for cornering and more capacity to keep on track through the corners.

Ultimately, having the driving force spread across all four wheels means greater control and confidence under all conditions. The traction and control delivered by Symmetrical AWD is further enhanced by the Outback’s suspension. The wide track rigid front suspension produces more responsive steering and cornering, while the double wishbone rear suspension ensures a smooth, controlled ride with outstanding handling, comfort and quietness. For you, the driver, it all adds up to an agile and responsive vehicle with optimum balance, control and confidence in a variety of driving conditions.

Think outside the Boxer

Hit the road with Subaru Ambassador, Andrew Daddo in the Outback as he travels around parts of Australia.

At Subaru we believe the long way is the best way. Because when we focus less on the destination, we give ourselves more time to discover, a greater chance to connect, and more opportunities to learn, laugh and grow together.

Remember it's not about getting from A to B, it's about the memories that you make along the way.
