Subaru Outback Accessories & Parts

About Subaru Outback

The Subaru Outback was first introduced to North America at the 1994 New York Auto Show. The crossover SUV premiered in 1995 and was a trim package on the Legacy wagon. Unlike the previous generation Legacy wagon, Subaru Outback featured raised suspension for better ground clearance (7,3 inches), which stimulated the increased sales. Appearing as an efficient alternative to popular SUVs, the model came with all wheel drive as a standard equipment. Since 1996 the Outback was known as a separately-marketed line in the United States. It was Olivier Boulay, who was in charge of designing new Outback exterior accessories. Sharing midsize Legacy platform, the wagon arrived with new SUV design cues and the following Outback parts: a taller roof, large fog lights, new grille, larger wheels, tweed-like seats and door panel inserts. The optional 2,5-liter engine produced 155 hp, but there was a gain of 10 hp with engine upgrade in 1997. Extra sound insulation was added in 1999 for more comfort.

Starting 2000, the second generation Outback came as sedan and wagon. The AWD layout was kept, depending on transmission choice. Mechanical “Continuous AWD” system was offered for models with manual transmission. It redirected power from rear to front, and vice versa, also from one rear wheel to the other. Automatic transmission models came with electronically-controlled AWD system. It redirected differing amounts of power to the rear wheels continuously. Outback's base and Limited trims used 2,5-liter engine, which delivered 165 hp. New to the line were L.L. Bean Edition and VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) wagon, which came with 3.0-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The more powerful engine delivered 212 hp. As for the interior parts, rear headrests were standard on all trim levels. The sedan's rear seats didn't fold down, while the previous generation models featured 60:40 folding rear seats. The Outback L.L. Bean was a unique vehicle due to McIntosh stereo system, which was standard for this trim 2001 till 2003. It also featured VDC, dual moonroofs, and in-dash six-disc CD changer. OnStar hardware that provides subscription-based communications, in-vehicle security, hands free calling, turn-by-turn navigation, and remote diagnostics systems, was optional on Outback L.L. Bean.

The third generation model got an upgrade in ground clearance (8,5 inches) and refreshed front styling. New Outback XT used a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, which produced 243 hp. This model was available with any of three transmissions: 4-speed Auto-SportShift, 5-speed Auto-SportShift, or 5-speed manual. The L.L. Bean trim offered wood and leather steering wheel, an auxiliary port on the stereo for MP3 compatibility, perforated leather seats, GPS navigation, double sized, one piece, and glass moonroof as standard equipment. As for 2008 model year, Outback sedan was no longer produced. The Diesel Subaru Outback 2,0D was unveiled the same year at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle was available with 5-speed manual transmission. The L.L. Bean model was then replaced by Limited, so the model line was the following: 2.5i, 2.5i Limited, 2.5XT Limited, and 3.0 R Limited. The fourth generation Outback debuted in 2009 at the New York Auto Show. The redesigned model no longer came with double-sized moonroof and an engine coolant temperature gauge (it was replaced by a fuel economy gauge). The turbocharged engine discontinued, while two engines were available: 2.5 L naturally aspirated and 3.6R. The ground clearance increased to 8,7 inches. Another upgrade was Dynamic Chassis Control Concept, the improvement to the chassis. Subaru also added safety technologies to the list of standard features. They are: Electronic Stability Control, Brake Assist, and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. Safety features also included the air bags for driver and front passenger, side bolster airbags for front seats on the outer edge, side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers, and a knee bolster air bag for driver.

The 2015 Subaru Outback is for those who crave for something that is a bit different from the ordinary sedan or crossover. The 2015 Subaru Outback is among the most fuel-efficient midsize crossovers in America with its EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway. It utilizes SUBARU BOXER engine technology that ensures smoother ride and better efficiency and provides improved balance and maximum power transfer thanks to horizontal layout. The 2015 Subaru Outback comes with two engine options: a 4-cylinder engine delivering 175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque and a more powerful 6-cylinder engine making 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. With either engine, the Subaru is extremely dynamic. Created for maximum traction and high distributing power, the Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive with X-Mode ensures better efficiency, stability, and response.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle.

2013 Subaru Outback

The covers look great, and are easy to clean. The installation took me about 15 minutes and was straightforward. The charcoal color was a bit lighter than I thought it would be, but since I am more into function than fashion, I don't mind, and it still looks great.
