Subaru Australia is welcoming two all-new, turbocharged variants to the refreshed Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Subaru Outback range for the model-year 2023 (MY23), with first deliveries anticipated to commence before Christmas.    

Complementing the 2.5-litre direct-injection naturally aspirated engine model that provides an excellent and reliable on-road and off-road driving experience, the more powerful 2.4-litre direct-injection turbocharged (DIT) Boxer engine has been added to the Symmetrical AWD Subaru Outback range to provide customers more power and more capability.

A perfectly engineered balance of control and power, the all-new, turbocharged Subaru Outback offerings are bound to lead grand touring enthusiasts on endless adventures.

Subaru Australia’s Managing Director, Blair Read, said: “We have heard our customer’s request for a turbocharged Outback loud and clear, so we are extremely pleased to add two all-new, turbocharged Subaru Outback variants to the MY23 Subaru Outback line-up.

“A more powerful turbocharged engine, coupled with the latest intuitive technology, impressive interior and of course the all-terrain capability of Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD, makes the Outback XT the perfect vehicle for any Australian road trip.”

Under the bonnet, the more powerful 2.4-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection turbocharged (DIT) Boxer 4-cylinder petrol engine, delivers a hearty 183kW of power at 5200-6000rpm and 350Nm of torque at 2000-4800rpm.

Due to increased torque provided by the turbocharged engine delivered simultaneously to all four wheels by Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD, all-new Subaru Outback AWD Sport XT and Touring XT deliver greater towing capacity than naturally aspirated variants, increasing to a maximum of 2,400kg* which is certain to delight adventurous Australians who are keen to explore the country.

The entire MY23 Symmetrical AWD Subaru Outback range features multiple updates to increase user-friendliness and driver convenience. This includes, for the first time in an Australian specification Subaru vehicle, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The all-new, turbocharged Subaru Outback will be available in two variants – AWD Sport XT and AWD Touring XT – both comprising a laundry list of technology and features which provide ultimate safety and driver comfort to suit Australian adventurers. 

Interested customers can now pre-order their all-new Subaru Outback AWD Sport XT or Touring XT, along with the remainder of the MY23 AWD Subaru Outback range, online via www.subaru.com.au/configure or through their local Subaru Retailer.
