2010 Subaru Outback gives more space, comfort, stability and has nicer exterior. Here are some specifications of Subaru Outback 2010 with the “half cut” picture of naked Subaru Outback which shows the Subaru Boxer engine cut out and the interior of outback clearly. Pictures and video snapped at 2010 Geneva Motorshow by KDI editor.
2010 SUBARU OUTBACK HALF NAKED PICTURE & SPECS
2010 Subaru Outback is much bigger in nearly every dimension. While it may not look that much larger in pictures, park it next to a conventional car or wagon and you’ll immediately notice the difference. The Outback is now quite similar to the Toyota Venza, which also bridges the gap between crossover and wagon. Not only does this provide a more visual distinction from traditionally uncool wagons, but it also provides a significant improvement in rear seat space (4 additional inches of legroom) and cargo capacity. Even bigger stuff can be strapped to the roof using the standard, adjustable roof rails that easily swing inward to serve double-duty as cross rails. It’s a nifty feature that cuts down on the wind noise and air drag that go along with fixed cross rails.
The all-new Outback features a fairly broad list of transmission and engine choices, one of which is capable of up to 29 mpg on the highway when equipped with the base engine and optional CVT transmission. That model averages 22 mpg in the city, while the six-speed manual Outback 2.5i is rated at 19/27 mpg. For those with a heavier foot, the 6-cylinder 3.6R with its standard five-speed automatic is rated at 18/25 mpg.
The Outback shares a lot with the Legacy, but a 2.8-inch longer wheelbase helps with stability and ride quality while adding an extra four inches to the rear legroom. The Outback grows two inches in width, as well.
Ground clearance is up to 8.7 inches for this soft-roader. Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive is standard across the line, though each of the engine options features a specially-tailored AWD configuration.
The 2.5i models are powered by a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer mated to a six-speed manual or an optional “Lineartronic” CVT transmission. Subaru says fuel economy and acceleration are up with either transmission. The CVT is standard on the Limited, optional otherwise.
Base 2.5i models will come with 16-inch steel wheels; 17-inch alloy wheels will be standard otherwise.
Manual transmission 2.5i models feature a permanent all-wheel-drive system that employs a viscous-coupling locking center differential. CVT 2.5i models have an active all-wheel-drive system with an electronically managed continuously variable hydraulic transfer clutch to send power to the rear wheels.
Six-cylinder Outbacks get a planetary gear-type center differential with an electronically controlled continuously variable hydraulic clutch that offers the fastest transfer of power between front and rear. Stability control is standard across the lineup.
Standard roof rails on all models feature crossbars that swing into position when needed to alleviate wind noise and to improve aerodynamics.
