Expected soon in South Africa

Johannesburg, 17 March 2021 – Today,  Subaru Southern Africa announces the imminent arrival of the all-new Subaru Outback SUV. The new Outback is the next step in the evolution of the SUV wagon that Subaru pioneered 27 years ago.

The all-new Subaru Outback is the most advanced, most capable  and safest car in the brand’s history.

Sporting a new and more powerful 2.5-litre direct injection  Boxer® Engine as well as wholly improved levels of refinement and dynamic ability, the new Outback extends the product positioning of being all-terrain capable while offering superior levels of luxury, practicality and convenience.

Outback will be offered in South Africa in two trim levels, the Field and Touring models giving customers more choice to suit specific lifestyles. Whilst both models offer the highest levels of technology and  safety, the Field derivative adopts a more rugged design where the Touring  has more urban trim accents.

The new Outback also debuts a number of new technologies. The Hands Free Tailgate function is an entirely new technology for the brand. It works by waving your hand or arm directly in front of the rear Subaru badge  on the centre of the tailgate, for a convenient and easy way to gain access  to the boot.

Making its debut on the Outback, the DriverFocus™ Distraction  Mitigation System is a smart new technology that will in future, be rolled out to other vehicles in the Subaru range. This system makes use of cameras and facial recognition to monitor the driver for signs of fatigue or distraction and then warns the driver where it detects a lack of focus and  attention to the road. This system also allows for facial recognition to automatically adjust driving position and mirrors to pre-programmed settings  for up to 5 individual drivers – safety and convenience provided by this  smart technology.

The new Subaru Outback also heralds the latest Subaru in-car design and cabin architecture. A key highlight here is the new 11,6-inch portrait/vertical touchscreen with smartphone-familiar swipe, drag and touch features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as 4 x USB ports are standard on both Outback grades.

When it comes to safety, the Outback is unsurpassed. From its structural design to its plethora of passive and active safety systems, the  Outback has never been safer, bringing a whole new level of design and  technology to the fore.

The Outback also features the latest, most advanced generation of EyeSight® yet. This system now includes Autonomous Corrective Steering,  improved lane keeping, vibration feedback through the steering wheel and an  altogether wider field of view and therefore operation through the dual  cameras. This is in addition to all the other functions of our award-winning  EyeSight® Driving Assistance system.

Nteo Nkoli, Marketing Lead at Subaru SA says, “The all-new  Subaru Outback is a leap ahead in terms of benchmark safety and technology  not just for Subaru but for others in the segment as well. Now offered in two  grades, this is a continuation of our strategy to offer our South African  customers even more choice and the imminent arrival of this flagship product  is exciting news for Subaru SA and all our customers. It really is a mind  shift in terms of what is possible.”

The all-new Subaru Outback will be available from all Southern  African dealers from 1 May 2021.
