The most fuel efficient powerplant in the Outback range is the 2.0 litre turbo diesel that powers the Subaru Outback 2.0D. This only uses 5.7L/100km combined if your open road usage is sedate cruising. This engine can create a lot of pollution when used in a mainly urban setting. A particulate filter is fitted, and you will need to drive for at least half an hour, at out of town speeds weekly, so that the filter can clean itself.
The best alternative engine in the lineup is the 2.5 litre four cylinder petrol unit. This engine has a fuel efficiency of 7.3L/100km combined. This figure is assisted by the stop start system that saves fuel by automatically turning the engine off when stationary in heavy city traffic.
The Outback 3.6R has the most powerful engine in the entire range. This 3.6 litre powerplant has six cylinders and generates 50% more power than the previously mentioned 2.5 litre petrol model. Of course, this uses significantly more fuel, but you get the best equipment levels in the range and a Harmon Kardon audio system to soften the blow.
