Subaru’s gets it right with new 2010 Outback

The 2010 Subaru Outback looks good enough as a no-nonsense car which pretty much fit its purpose. The thing about Subaru cars really is the fact that you almost bet your last dollar on its performance and where this is usually concerned, it exudes character. The faster your Subaru is, the more character you have (in this case, we are referring to the WRX), but the Outback is not so bad either. Based loosely on the success of the previous version, Subaru has changed the looks of the Outback and hence you get a totally newly designed 2010 Outback.

My first reaction when I saw this car is that this car looks good, which is the kind of sentiment which do not usually come with Subaru cars, put aside the WRXs. Whichever way you see it, it does not look that different from the previous variant although there seemed to be something different, which is hard to point a finger to. it is now 4.1 inches taller and 2 inches wider although 1 inch shorter. It comes with 2 engine choices which is the 2.5i SOHC, 4 cylinder engine which is the base version that boosts out some 170 horses while the top of the range version is fitted with a 3.6 liter DOHC engine which gives you 256 horses. Crazy? Not so from Subaru. For the 2.5i version, it comes with a 6 speed manual gearbox transmission and Subaru’s own Lineartronic CVT system while the top range one comes with 5 speed automatic with paddle shifters. On top of that, you will appreciate its all-wheel drive system as well. The Outback comes with 3 trim models known as the base, the Premium and Limited editions. Where this is concerned, the base model comes with the standard Brake Assist, Vehicle Dynamics control and electronic parking brakes while the Limited edition comes with moonroof and a navigation system. Subaru’s speed is never a doubt and when fitted with a wagon, you actually get ample space with speed that people would only be envious of.
