2015 Subaru Outback review
The brand new 2015 Outback presents a bolder look with crisper, sculpted lines that convey both its all-road ability and upgraded refinement. A new front fascia incorporates the hexagonal grille and bumper into one smooth piece. An aluminum hood minimizes weight over the front wheels, which helps enhance guiding feedback. In the Outback 3.6 R Limited, brand-new standard HID low-beam headlights give the automobile a more unique evening trademark. Limited trim line models include turn signal exterior mirrors. The 2015 Outback’s windshield is more raked, pulled forward 2.0 in. at the base. The new windshield angle, higher seating hip points, brand-new front partition windows and door-mounted side view mirrors help enhance presence. The Outback continues with 8.7-in. ground clearance, which is higher than for some SUVs, yet with low step-in height for comfort. When protecting items to the roofing rails with incorporated retractable crossbars and tie downs, New step-style doorsills permit one to stand securely. A power rear gate with memory height is readily available on Outback for the first time.
The 2015 Subaru Outback maintains a footprint just like the model it changes. Wheelbase is increased by simply 0.2-in., general length by 0.6-in. and width by 0.7 in. The changes, though little, yield a roomier guest cabin, at 108.1 cu. ft. (up from 105.4 cu. ft.). The added area consists of gains in shoulder, front and rear hip and breathing space and rear legroom. The Outback’s freight location has actually been enlarged to 35.5 cu. ft. behind the rear seats, up from 34.3, while maximum capability with the conventional 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks folded is now 73.3 cu. ft., up from 71.3. In addition, the load floor provided by the reduced seats now lays flatter, and brand-new rear seatback release levers in the cargo location enhance convenience.
New soft-touch products, thicker cushioning for armrests and the center console and new trim designs provide the 2015 Outback a more superior feel. The driver faces a distinctly sporty instrument panel, highlighted by two binocular-style gauge skins with a center LCD information display- 3.5-in. on cars without the EyeSight driver-assist system and 5-in. on EyeSight cars. An ECO gauge indicates and promotes fuel-efficient driving routines using color bars. The Premium and Limited-trim levels feature evaluates with stylish blue ring illumination.
The heater control panel integrates the digital clock and outside air temperature level displays, with the time immediately fixed by GPS in navigation-equipped designs. A brand-new one-touch lane changer function for the turn signals includes benefit. Premium and Limited trim levels come equipped with standard automobile up/down motorist and front traveler windows with pinch defense.

Transmission of the new Subaru wagon
For 2015, all Outback models now come conventional with a Lineartronic CVT (constantly variable transmission), with the 6-cylinder design making use of a high-torque version. Changes made to lower friction in the CVT contribute to greater fuel efficiency. Because a CVT does not move equipment, the motorist enjoys smoother performance in all driving situations. The CVT’s selectable manual mode provides six pre-selected ratios to allow the motorist to “shift” manually making use of steering wheel paddle changes. This function can provide extra motorist control when driving down inclines, for example.
