Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive the Outback from crossover which generally offer drive as an extra-cost option. The continues with 8.7 inches of clearance, which is higher many crossovers and some SUVs.

The 2013 Subaru 2.5i models debut a new (DOHC) 2.5-liter FB series engine for increased performance and efficiency. The new engine produces 173 hp and 174 of torque, compared to 170 hp and 170 lb.-ft. the previous engine. More is that the new engine produces low-end torque across a speed range, making the Outback 2.5i models more responsive in everyday

Subaru Outback 2.5i and Premium models offer a between a standard 6-speed transmission and the second-generation Lineartronic the latter is standard on 2.5i models. Outback 3.6R continue with a 256-horsepower 6-cylinder Boxer engine and electronically controlled automatic

2013 Subaru Outback

EPA fuel economy figures are not yet but Subaru projects that the Subaru Outback 2.5i the Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable will achieve 24-mpg mpg highway/26 mpg combined, up compared the 22/29/24 for the 2012 model. also projects that the Outback will achieve a overall safety rating the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA). The 2013 models add a new Brake Override and now an airbag deployment signals a cutoff.

Unlike a conventional automatic that uses fixed ratios, a CVT provides infinite between the lowest and highest ratios with no discernable or shifts. The CVT continuously and smoothly to performance demand, helping to the engine in its most efficient range. Models with the CVT feature a 6-speed manual with steering wheel shifters, which allow the to control the transmission via six pre-set

New EyeSight Driver-Assist System

The Subaru Outback (and ) models debut Subaru’s new driver-assist system, which Adaptive Cruise Control, Braking and Vehicle Lane Warning. Projected to be one of the most such technologies available in the market, EyeSight uses a camera design developed by to provide a detection angle than that of radar-based

The EyeSight system processes images to identify the vehicles in front, as well as obstacles, lanes and other items. relative speeds of approximately EyeSight is capable of detecting or objects in the vehicle’s path and can in order to mitigate or even the collision. Under certain Eyesight is able to bring the car to a stop.

At relative speeds approximately 19 mph, EyeSight can the brakes when an object is and will attempt to brake if the takes no evasive action, or not brake appropriately, to help collision damage.

The Lane Departure and Sway feature can detect if the car begins to outside the intended lane a turn signal being or if the car begins to sway within the lane. Intended for freeway Eyesight’s Adaptive Cruise system can maintain a safe from the vehicle in front, and/or accelerating the car as needed to the driver-selected target speed and distance.

Adaptive Cruise is operational from 1-87 mph and can brake the vehicle to a stop if the locks on to a vehicle ahead. As an convenience, Adaptive Cruise assists the driver in heavy and go freeway traffic by maintaining a distance from the vehicle

In heavy traffic conditions, will also alert the when the vehicle ahead has if he or she doesn’t react within seconds. The technology can also reduce collision damage by the throttle when it senses an in front, but the accelerator pedal to be pushed.

Blending the Best of Car and SUV

The Outback is smart-sized compared to 2-row crossover vehicles, a mid-size interior in an easy-to-maneuver and wagon. The Subaru Outback the crisp car-like handling the versatility of an SUV. The 8.7 inches of clearance is higher than for large SUVs and crossovers maintaining a low step-in height.

Revised Suspension for Enhanced Smoother Ride

Numerous to the body structure, suspension and give the Outback an even and quieter ride for 2013, also helping increase agility. Greater stiffness at key of the structure, including the front mounts and rear frame helps to reduce transmission of while also contributing to responsive handling.

In tandem the structural enhancements, Subaru the diameter of the double-wishbone rear sway bar and also increased the and damper rates and bushing As a result, body roll has reduced by up to 40 percent. The Subaru driver will experience a responsive, yet quieter vehicle

Enhanced Interior Comfort and

In 2.5i models equipped the 6-speed manual transmission, the AWD system uses a viscous-coupling center differential to distribute a nominal 50/50 front to Slippage at either the front or wheels will cause the to send more power to the wheels.

Subaru Outback 2.5i equipped with the Lineartronic CVT use Torque Split AWD. An managed continuously variable clutch actively controls distribution in response to driving and wheel slippage.

The Outback uses the Variable Torque (VTD) AWD system with a electronic automatic transmission. A center differential works an electronically controlled continuously hydraulic transfer clutch to power distribution. The VTD system sends more power to the wheels (45:55) to enhance agility, and it can continuously adjust distribution in response to driving and conditions.

Subaru Safety

The Ring-Shaped Frame Reinforcement structure has been proven for protection in more than a of use. Inside, the Subaru features standard front pelvis/torso airbags and side airbags that offer and rear outboard seat
