Subaru expand Legacy and Outback diesel range

Subaru Outback 2010 f

Subaru has expanded its All Wheel Drive Legacy and Outback model ranges with the launch of a diesel model of both cars to complement the 2010 new generation Legacy and Outback petrol models launched last month.

The two cars share the larger new generation Legacy and Outback chassis and body platform.  They follow an initial launch of Legacy and Outback diesels late last year.

“The launch of our first ever Boxer Diesel models last year was a toe in the water exercise,” said Graeme Woodlands, the Managing Director of Subaru of New Zealand. “We were pleasantly surprised how well they were accepted by the market with sales from the two models about 15% of our sales over that period.”

The cars come with officially measured overall fuel consumptions of between 5.9 and 6.4-litres per 100kms and meet Euro4 emission levels. Drivers can keep an eye on their progress with an economy gauge and the fuel consumption read out.

The Outback Boxer Diesel is now one of the most economical 4WD SUVs available in New Zealand with fuel economy of just 6.4-litres per 100km. And the Legacy Boxer Diesel is one of the most economical medium sized diesel cars available locally with the Legacy 2.0D Sedan rated at 5.9 l/100km and the Legacy 2.0D Wagon rated at 6.1 l/100km.

The Outback 2.5i CVT petrol model recently launched last month was the most efficient petrol-powered Medium SUV in New Zealand.  The Outback 2.0D Boxer Diesel model is now the most efficient diesel-powered Medium SUV in New Zealand according to official fuel economy figures.

Since the original diesel engine models were introduced last year, changes have been made to the 2.0-litre motor to further reduce emissions, weight and NVH and improve fuel efficiency. The engine is still rated at 110 kWs at 3600 rpm, with 350 Nm of the all-important torque available from a lowly 1800 rpm.
