Here's how the new Subaru Outback will shape up in Ireland

New Subaru Outback will be available for 182-registration period.


THE SUBARU OUTBACK 2.5i petrol version goes on sale for the 182-registration period at the same price as that of the outgoing diesel model. The updated car will start at €46,995 and gets many minor tweaks to keep it looking current.

New headlights, a redesigned hexagonal front grille that houses a new 180-degree camera are among the changes to the new car.

Subaru has earned a solid reputation for safety, and the latest Outback is no different. Safety equipment includes the company’s EyeSight driver assistance system, Steering-Responsive Headlights, Lane Keep Assist and side-view cameras fitted to the base of the passenger door mirror to make parking in tighter spaces that bit easier.

In addition to that kit, the interior gets some visual tweaks with new gloss black panels and silver surrounds to give the car a more upmarket feel. The touchscreen infotainment system also grows slightly in size to a new eight-inch unit. That Starlink system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Performance comes in the form of a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated ‘boxer’ four-cylinder engine. This new ‘FB25’ engine generates 175hp and 235Nm of torque.

Here in Ireland, the Outback will come in two trim levels, starting with the SE model that features 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, keyless entry and push-button engine start, front and rear parking cameras and rear privacy glass. Moving up a grade to the SE Premium, which starts at €49,995, adds leather seats, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, electric boot lid and electrically adjustable front seats.
