Adventurous at heart,
rugged to the core
The new 2023 Subaru Outback sports an exterior design that is both bold and purposeful, now even more rugged with a redesigned front fascia, front grille, headlights, fog lights and body cladding. The overall stance of this authentic adventurer is wider and more planted than past generations, while improved aerodynamics help to boost efficiency and stability. The high ground clearance and generous glass area complete the picture, emphasizing that the Outback features a commanding view of the road—any road. New for 2023 is the Outback Onyx, which brings more all-weather capability to the mix. Meanwhile, the Wilderness Outback is an even more rugged and capable model with a higher ground clearance engineered for bigger adventures.
Roof Rails with Swing-in-place Crossbars
The cargo-carrying capacity of the Subaru Outback gets a big boost courtesy of the standard roof rails with swing-in-place crossbars. Practical tie-down holes create the added versatility needed for a wider variety of gear, while the crossbars can be moved forward or back to accommodate items of different lengths. The roof rails on the Premier XT trim level feature slick silver accents while the Outback WildernessTM features a pair of 800-lb static load capacity fixed-position roof rails with tie down hooks and anodized copper accents.
Featured on the Touring trim level and above, the power liftgate can be operated via the key fob or by triggering the hands-free sensor located near the Subaru badge. This flexibility allows for quick and easy access to the cargo area—even if your hands are full. The innovative liftgate also features an auto-close function, an integrated safety sensor that detects objects in its path and a stop-position memory function to set the opening height. The Outback WildernessTM comes equipped with an LED cargo light on the liftgate, allowing you easier access in the dark.
This power sunroof slides open to reveal a fantastic view of the sky above or tilts open to circulate fresh air throughout the cabin. For particularly hot or sunny days, the manual sunshade is ready to provide cool comfort. The Subaru Outback features ample headroom, so even the tallest passengers can enjoy the sunroof and still have room to manoeuvre.
Generous Ground Clearance
The authentic go-anywhere capability of the Subaru Outback is further enhanced by 220 mm of ground clearance, more than enough to clear the average obstacle. This feature also comes in handy when driving through deep snow, in ruts or over pothole-strewn surfaces. The Outback WildernessTM, with 10 mm more in ground clearance, features even higher approach and departure angles to help power greater adventures.
Aluminum Alloy Wheels
There are five strikingly distinct aluminum alloy wheel packages available for the 2023 Subaru Outback. The Touring trim level features daring 17-inch split 5-spoke, two-tone alloy wheels with a machined finish. A new bold 18-inch 10-spoke wheel design with painted gunmetal finish is available on the Onyx trim. The Limited trim level features stylish 18-inch 10-spoke, two-tone alloy wheels with a machined finish. The Outback WildernessTM showcases rugged 17-inch 6-spoke alloy wheels with a matte black painted finish. Finally, the Limited XT and Premier XT models both receive new bold and adventurous 18-inch 10-spoke, two-tone alloy wheels with a machined finish.
LED Headlights and Fog Lights
All versions of the Subaru Outback are equipped with standard LED headlights and fog lights, which cast a brighter beam for increased visibility. These headlights automatically turn on in low-light conditions or when the windshield wipers are in use. They also feature High Beam Assist, which automatically turns the high beams on when the road ahead is clear and turns them back off when other cars are nearby. The Outback WildernessTM features exclusive hexagonal-shaped LED fog lights.
The 2023 Subaru Outback features streamlined aerodynamics, including sculpted side mirrors and wheel designs, that help reduce wind noise, increase stability and boost efficiency. Models equipped with the 2.5-litre 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® feature the Active Grille Shutter, which opens and closes for optimum efficiency. With the front grille shut, wind resistance is reduced and the engine warms up faster; with the grille open, the additional airflow helps cool the engine.
