Using the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium for an Outdoors Adventure

Subaru has a good pedigree to call on for vehicles that are capable of outdoors adventures. There is, of course, the Forester SUV which sells extremely well in the Aussie market. The older Liberty wagon was very popular too, but it has been replaced by the Outback. There are quite a few differences between them, but in relation to outdoors capability, the Outback has a greater ground clearance, which is a great start. The model we are looking at here is the Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium, let’s take a closer look at how useful it is for an outdoor adventure.

Everyday Credentials:

The Subaru Outback for sale in Australia today is a wagon that has better on road performance than an SUV. This is crucial, as it is entirely unlikely that your entire adventure will take place off road. It’s also nice to know that the Outback is a great everyday car making it a very flexible weekend light off roader. Admittedly, the Forester is a better SUV for serious off roading, but the Outback can definitely handle more than you might think.

The Place in the Range:

This particular model sits in the middle of the petrol variants between the entry level 2.5i and the top of the range 3.6R. There are two diesel options that both use the 2.0 litre ‘Boxer’ diesel powerplant. When driving the steering is light, handling is easy, and parking is a pleasure. The driving position is excellent, the suspension is firm yet comfortable, and there is overtaking is fine for a car of this size.

The Adventurous Elements:

One of the primary considerations for a weekend offroading adventure is storage. Fortunately, there is plenty of storage in the Subaru Outback that is easily accessed with an automatic tailgate. The boot has a cavernous 512 litres of space, and that is with the rear seats up. Once the rear seats are dropped, the space rises to 1,801 litres, IKEA anyone? For a couple, the seats down gives more than enough space for surfboards and ski equipment. For anything larger, there are moulded roof rails with crossbars for external storage. A bike rack is easily fitted, you can lock your bike upright with brackets and straps to keep it in place.
