2010 Subaru Outback coming to NZ soon

Subaru Outback 2010

North America’s version of the new generation Subaru Outback has been unveiled at the recent New York International Auto Show. The car seen in New York is for the North American market and is manufactured at Subaru of America’s plant in Indiana.

The New Zealand model Outback, due here later this year, will be based on the Japanese built version of the vehicle. There will be some external appearance differences between the New Zealand Outback and the American version.

Slightly shorter than the current Outback with reduced overhangs, the new model will be higher and wider with more ground clearance. The Outback will have similar power trains to the new Legacy, including Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic gearbox and six-speed manual transmission options with the four-cylinder Boxer engine model, plus the choice of a 3.6 litre six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine with five-speed automatic.

The 2010 Outback is built on an entirely new platform. “The new Outback will offer a very spacious and comfortable package with exceptional fuel economy”, says Graeme Woodlands, Managing Director of Subaru of New Zealand. “It is a vehicle packed with technology that only Subaru has to offer, such as the Boxer engine with low centre of gravity, fulltime symmetrical All Wheel Drive, and the chain driven Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission.”

Expect to see the new Outback on our streets by October.
