After last year’s major update, it was not worth waiting for cardinal changes, but they are still there and should help the model stay afloat while maintaining a set of basic qualities.

Outback has always been different since 1994. Another generational change Legacy gave birth to an unusual all-rounder. There was no concept of “crossover” in the modern sense then, but there was a lot of interest in roomy cars for outdoor activities: despite its deliberately rude appearance in comparison with the Legacy, Outback quickly found fans, but more importantly, managed not to lose them for two and a half decades.

When crossovers came into vogue, the Outback retreated, but did not go into the shadows: today it is one of the most sought-after Subaru models, despite the rather high cost, comparable to larger and roomy crossovers.

The differences between 2021 cars for the American market are small: the headlights have received the ability to deflect at a certain angle along with the steering wheel: the technology is not new, but the Outback has improved it, incl. because now all trim levels have LED headlights. A system has appeared that warns of the need to check if something or someone is forgotten in the rear seats. Here Subaru just follows the trend, but there are a few points that would not hurt to improve without waiting for a big restyling.

The transmission is worth mentioning: the Lineatronic CVT is offered without an alternative. There are no complaints about the speed of reactions, but the system for imitating the behaviour of a traditional automaton requires improvement. Created to please the mass consumer, accustomed to feeling automatic transmission shifts, it does not combine very well with the nature of the variator: the imitation of switching often happens out of place, especially with intensive acceleration, and the engine sound characteristic of working with the variator introduces dissonance. The situation is slightly better with the older engine, but only due to the fact that it is noticeably more powerful.
