2017 Subaru Outback at East Hills Subaru for Long Island, NY

The 2017 Subaru Outback has 8.7-inches of ground clearance which is actually the same height as a great number of SUVs.  For the 2017 model year a new, range-topping Outback, called the Touring, has been introduced. It features a special interior and exterior trim. Also new for this model year are newly standard alloy wheels, and an optional EyeSight Driver Assist Technology package enhanced with reverse automatic braking and automated high beam headlight control.

Under the Outback's Hood

Subaru's celebrating the 50th anniversary of its horizontally opposed engine this year and the 2017 Subaru Outback sports the company's oldest examples on sale today. Subaru is well-known for its horizontally opposed "boxer" engine.  The base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder which generates 175 horsepower and gas mileage of around 30 miles per gallon. The 3.6-liter flat 6-cylinder is slightly more expensive but you do get additional power and additional Subaru brand promise. There is an optional engine in higher trims which churns out 256 horsepower. Its fuel economy is in the low to middle twenties.

Design of Subaru Outback

The Outback is great at trail-prowess and rugged all-weather ability.  This type of thing should get even better in the newer Outback. Active torque vectoring should allow better control of individual wheels in some low-traction surfaces, and some wheelspin to help power through low-traction situations like snow or mud. Brake performance is great and there's really not much nosedive. And the ABS includes a logic for unpaved roads; we slammed them on momentarily on a washboard-like gravel road and the system didn't show any fluster. The Outback was given a somewhat quicker steering ratio last year. For 2017 that was retuned, and the Outback gets some additional tweaks-especially to top Limited models, which get a more refined ride from softer dampers. Compared to the 4-cylinder models, 6-cylinder models of the Outback have a noticeably heavier steering feel-simply a matter of more weight over the front wheels, as the steering gear and boost curve is the same.
