Outback Diesel Auto Around The Corner

Outback Diesel Auto Around The Corner

Subaru will introduce its first automatic transmission diesel variant in the Outback early next year.

The Outback 2.0-litre Boxer Diesel with the Subaru Lineartronic™ Transmission (SLT) will build on the manual diesel variants of Outback and Forester.

It will be the first time Subaru has offered an automatic diesel in New Zealand.

“Our Diesel Outback has been the most economical diesel 4WD at the last two Energywise economy rallies,” said Wallis Dumper, the Managing Director of Subaru of New Zealand.

“But we also know the diesel market is dominated by automatic transmission models, so the addition of the diesel automatic Outback for Model Year 2013 is significant news for Subaru.”

“We know there’s massive pent up demand for auto diesels,” said Mr. Dumper. “Particularly in rural and regional areas, so it’s a great opportunity for us to meet the needs of those customers.”

“The Lineartronic transmissions in our petrol cars are a huge hit, typified by the new XV and Impreza, so we can only see good things for Outback auto diesel.”

“We’re very excited and we suggest customers pre-order with dealers to ensure early delivery.”

Pricing and specification are yet to be announced.
