2016 Subaru Outback

2016 Subaru Outback is not really due for update, we would see an almost similar models as the model got updated for 2015 with many changes (in 2014). The brand new vehicle will be due in 2020 if we are to go by a sensible 5 year mid life upgrade. Let’s take a look in detail at the upcoming 2016 Subaru outback.


2016 Subaru Outback, body & exterior redesign:

2016 Subaru Outback will not see many changes to bumpers, body line, die changes (shapes), or changes to the tail/front lamps. In 2015, this car got major changes and nothing significant will be changed despite all the rumor floating on the web. Most of the rumor is created to lead the reader into sharing and making a website popular by writers with cheap who have no idea about the actual car. Getting back to the car, the new body is a charm, it’s shapes may not make everyone fall in love. However a Subaru fan will surely appreciate the new well chiseled shape and an adventure loving stance with enough ground clearance. If we are lucky, there may be updates to colors, audio/GPS and infotainment system, seats fabric and introducing new options packages. Currently nine colors are available on the vehicle. If you really want to see bodyline changes and are fine with the overall current look, you may choose to go for custom modifications to make your 2016 Subaru Outback stand apart. Minor things like body graphics, spoilers, vinyls and accessories can change the whole look of any car. Also, such modifications add a personal touch to your car that is not shared by thousands of other buyers.


2016 Subaru Outback interior and comforts

The 2016 Subaru Outback may see an upgraded Starlink infotainment system that include 4G connectivity, stolen vehicle recovery, auto collision notification, health reports and app based remote vehicle services. Instrumentation is expected to be same and the new 2015 system does not disappoint in terms of design and function. You may see new wheel choices depending upon model and trim option. Continue to count the great features like 8 airbags, a great entertainment system, oodles of stowage space and a spacious cabin that comforts even large occupants in the new version. The crisp nature of interior shapes on dashboard, steering, side panels, controls and other elements give this classic a unique identity. Standard features are expected to remain the same. Plenty of heating/adjustment features on seats and steering are available as options and add to your convenience.

2016 Subaru Outback Engine/Transmission

2016 Subaru Outback is expected to field the same 2.5 liter engine with changes only to the tuning (if required). This engine is mated to a CV transmission that leaves one wanting a manual in few cases. Although a great box, the engine can do a bit more with a manual 6 speed. There is a 3.6 liter engine that pushes out 256 hp and 247 lb-ft torque against 175HP/174lb-ft of the smaller motor.A Symmetrical AWD system handles the road well along with VDC system that controls the car while monitoring wheel speeds, steering angle, brake pressure and other dynamics.

Release date & Price

2016 Subaru Outback is expected to be available at dealerships around Q3 of 2015 at overall similar pricing (minor inflationary bump-up expected), currently it is priced starting US $25 grands.

  1. I’m a American now living in the Philippines, and Yes, I’m In Love with the Outback. I can’t wait for the 2016 model to arrive here, more so the 3.6 Limited. I have my money ready to buy.

  2. While the new Outback is certainly an improvement over the previous model, I find several aspects of its design to be seriously annoying, even disappointing. What grates on me most is the design of the roof rails; while the swing-out crossbars might be innovative and useful to some, the structure required to support them is visually overwhelming — they’re huge and unsightly, out of balance with the rest of the vehicle. Other than that, 1) the wheels are ugly, 2) the central console and trim on the steering wheel are much too highly reflective, 3) the HVAC knobs are tapered so much that they are difficult to grasp, whether or not one is wearing gloves (unlike those on the WRX and Forester), 4) there are no useful cubbyholes inside the rear fenders, as there are on my 2005 Outback, 5) the 3.6-liter engine gets only mediocre fuel economy and the 2.5-liter engine is short on power for mountain driving, and 6) I just can’t get excited about the “driver engagement” of the CVT. Overall, this car is a reasonable “driving appliance,” and should sell well (to “soccer moms” and such), but it does little to attract “enthusiasts,” who have historically been drawn to the uniqueness of Subaru Outbacks. Aside from perhaps the CVT, I believe many of the above concerns could be addressed easily and at minimal cost as cosmetic changes in a “special edition” of the Outback. I hope Subaru incorporates some (or all?!) of these comments and concerns into the 2016 model, at least as a “special edition.”

  3. My beef with Subaru is the limited number of interior colors – black or ivory. Why can’t there be a gray, both cloth and leather on both the premium and limited models?
    My wife likes cloth, but I like the Limited, so we’re both screwed.

  4. Will the outback ever have ventilat

  5. Outback needs more knee room in driver’s space. Not “leg” room, but space on each side where a man’s knees want to go when driving. Men don’t keep their legs close together as women do. The hard edges right where a man’s knees want to go make the car very painfual to drive. Not much different from the rest of the market, though, as they are all pretty much hostile to full-sized male drivers.

  6. Just bought a 2016 Outback Limited and love it! People say it’s underpowered, but it meets my needs just fine. CVT works great – the interior is quiet – the ride is smooth. And, at last, the electronics are up to date. Love the adaptive cruise control. I can throw a set of drums or two timpani in the back with room to spare.
