Prepared to avoid.
At Subaru, we believe the best accident is the one that never happens. That’s why we’ve equipped the all-new Outback with Symmetrical AWD to ensure control in nearly any weather condition and the SUBARU BOXER engine to enhance stability with its lower centre of gravity. The Vehicle Dynamics Control System and generously sized brakes also give the Outback athletic reflexes to make it more nimble when you need to steer clear of danger.
  • Increased visibility

    We adjusted the frame to increase your visibility and decrease your blind spot area. We also installed front quarter windows with door-mounted side mirrors to reduce the front blind spot for increased forward visibility.

  • Vehicle Dynamics Control System

    Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high speed turns the vehicles off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.

  • Active Torque Vectoring

    When cornering, Active Torque Vectoring applies the brakes and distributes less torque to the inside wheels and more torque to the outside wheels. It helps make a sharp turn and handling more precise. In combination with Vehicle Dynamics Control System, it helps to keep you out of harm’s way, granting you a comforting sense of security.


Safety Focused.
Knowing the importance of all that’s aboard, the Outback does a lot to protect you and your passengers with high-quality safety systems like seven SRS* airbags, Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames and even a cabin protecting layout. There may be risks in life, but we make sincere efforts to make sure that what you value most is well protected in your Outback.
Putting protection first.
We built the Outback to protect passenger, driver and pedestrian alike because we know driving enjoyment starts with security and peace of mind. We built our vehicles to reflect that. We even designed our vehicles with specific energy-absorbing and cushioning structures to protect pedestrians in the event of an accident.
  • 5-Star Euro NCAP Rating

    The all-new Outback has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Program) safety performance test.

  • Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames

    The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames strengthen the passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design helps to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision. It also contributes to strengthening and lightening the chassis, leading to greater, reinforced protection.

  • Cabin-protecting Layout

    Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your Outback’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid moving into the cabin for your protection.

  • Seats, Seatbelts and SRS* Airbags

    Standard on the Outback are front SRS* airbags, plus front-side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS * airbags. Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest.


* SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts.
