The all-new Subaru Outback is landing in SA
Subaru SA has finally announced the arrival of the all-new Subaru Outback SUV. This all-new Outback will be the most advanced, capable, and safest vehicle to ever brace the brand’s history. To add further excitement, the Outback will be sporting a newer and more powerful 2.5-litre direct injection Boxer® Engine. South Africa will be getting two trims of the Outback, the Field, and Touring models.
The Outback will also debut several new technologies. The Hands-Free Tailgate function, which is one of many new technologies for the brand and will simply work by waving your hand or arm directly in front of the rear Subaru badge on the centre of the tailgate, allowing easier access to the boot. Another first for the Outback will be its latest DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System. This system makes full use of cameras and facial recognition to monitor the driver's overall focus. If the system detects that the driver is fatigue or distracted, it will then alert the driver to pay more attention to the road. This new smart technology will soon be rolled out to other vehicles in the Subaru range in the future.
The new Subaru Outback also features the latest Subaru in-car design and cabin architecture. The key highlight here is the all-new 11.6-inch vertical touchscreen that comes with drag and touch features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as 4 USB ports will be standard on both Outback models.
In terms of 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.
The all-new Subaru Outback will be available in dealerships across the country from 1 May 2021.
