Subaru managed to surprise the hell out of everyone at the NYIAS this year. Not just rolling out the announced 2010 Legacy, but also bringing out the 2010 Outback. But there’s one question … “was the surprise really a pleasant one?”
Powered by a 170 horsepower 2.5 liter boxer four-cylinder engine or a 3.6 liter H6 engine with 256 hp, the 2010 Outback comes with a five-speed automatic transmission and a larger 18.5 gallon fuel tank to improve range. On the outside the new wheelbase is 2.8 inches longer, and the body has been widened by 2 inches, height revved up by four inches, burlier fender flares and skid plates up front make up for the changes. As for the interiors, the got a strange touch of orange and improved leg space.
However, as a lot the 2010 Outback looks kind of disappointing despite its SUV-like credentials. So you decide on how much of a pleasant surprise it was for you!
