Overview

The Subaru Outback comes in wagon and sedan body styles. They come with a choice of three engines: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 175 horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 250 horsepower and a six-cylinder engine rated at 250 horsepower. All-wheel drive, a Subaru feature, is standard across the line, but it comes in three versions, each matched to a specific combination of engine and four- or five-speed transmission. Safety is enhanced with dual-stage frontal airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and full coverage side curtain airbags. Active front-seat head restraints are standard. Anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution come standard.For 2006, the four-cylinder is more powerful and two new models have been added.
