Subaru's Model Year 2014 Outback sports utility vehicle (SUV) is adding rugged and aggressive styling cues that underline its impressive All-Wheel Drive ability.

Widely regarded as the original crossover wagon, when launched in 1996, Outback is a firm favourite in the Subaru recreational range.
 
It offers genuine dirt road credentials and superior handling, combined with refined passenger car comfort - with the added insurance of an independent five-star occupant safety rating.

The muscular new MY14 Outback styling upgrades include: Roof rails with integrated cross bars, Side sills and cladding, Wheel arch guards, Front and rear under body guard protectors, Front mud flaps, Dark grey front grille, Dark grey alloy wheels, Sporty headlights with black background.

Despite adding over $2500 of additional value, the MY14 Outback Manufacturer's List Price* only increases by $500 on each variant.
 
Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: "We've had a lot of customer feedback suggesting owners would like a slightly tougher-looking Outback with greater body protection, which is especially useful on rural roads where this wagon rates highly.

The styling upgrades are standard on all Outback models, however customers not wanting the full kit have the option to specify just roof rails, side sills, dark grey front grille and alloy wheels, and the headlights with black background.

Already this year, Subaru announced multiple technical refinements to Outback, benefitting efficiency, handling and steering.

All Outback 2.5i variants added the new, more fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly FB horizontally-opposed Boxer engine.

Outback's revised All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system improves precision in torque distribution between front and back wheels, refining handling and stability.
 
Outback 2.5i Premium gained Subaru's award-winning EyeSightâ„¢ driver assist system in addition to the colour information display. All EyeSight-equipped Outbacks feature front sun visor extensions, dusk sensing headlights and rain sensing wipers.
