2014 Subaru Outback comes with enhanced handling characteristics, revised suspension components and the latest incarnation of Subaru's Vehicle Dynamics Control. The model also features a revised design for both the interior and exterior.

The most significant change is the new powertrain pairing.  A world first, Subaru engineers have combined the popular 2.0-litre Boxer diesel engine with a Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) – bringing improvements in driveability, fuel economy and emissions while also widening the car's appeal immensely.

The 2014 MY Subaru Outback 2.0D Lineartronic variant will feature a new trim level, the SX.  High levels of standard equipment are featured inside and out.

The exterior comes with new 17" gunmetal alloy wheels, along with body-coloured bumpers, body-coloured power folding door mirrors (with integrated LED indicator repeaters), and matching colour-coded door handles.  Silver roof rails and a roof spoiler are other exterior accents, while a power-sliding glass sunroof (with sunshade) and UV protected front, side and rear glass also feature.  Self-levelling automatic HID headlamps and rain sensing wipers add convenience for the driver.

Further highlights include front fog lights, pop-up headlight washers, heated mirrors, rear window defogger with timer, front and side window defrosters, and a windscreen wiper de-icer function.

The interior boasts multi-functioning leather-trimmed steering wheel, heated sports seats providing extra comfort when the weather turns cold. There are also a dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free system, audio system with USB connectivity and a VGA centre display with rear vision camera are all present.
