This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Outback is now in its fourth-generation of what Subaru likes to call the world's first sport utility wagon. The Outback is available with a 173-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual transmission (or optional six-speed CVT), or a 3.6-liter six-cylinder with a five-speed automatic transmission. The CVT and automatic transmissions feature a manual mode with paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Limited models feature leather seating, a 440-watt nine-speaker harman/kardon audio system and dual-zone automatic climate control. New for 2013, the Outback receives a DOHC 2.5-liter engine (replacing the previous SOHC engine). A new CVT transmission is available on 2.5 models. The grille, front bumper, headlights have been redesigned for all models. All models now come standard with Bluetooth audio streaming/phone connectivity and USB. Limited's gain rear seat ventilation ducts on the back of the center console.
