New Subaru Outback has absolutely phenomenal year

The 2016 Subaru Outback is having a record-breaking year in Australia. What four things are drawing buyers to the AWD wagon?

Is the Outback selling like crazy in Australia because of its all-wheel-drive capabilities alone? Subaru Outback is synonymous with the Australian region and can take on rough terrain. Is it this feature that is helping the SUV-alternative Outback set new records in Australia?

Subaru’s new generation 2016 Outback is setting new records and has sold more than 10,000 for the first time in its history in Australia. Subaru Australia reports the Outback wagon sold 10,146 so far this year with a month of sales still to go. Sales for November were up an incredible 634.4 percent for the month and 351.5 per cent YTD, according to official VFACTS results.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “Outback has had a phenomenal year and shows no sign of slowing. What is drawing buyers to the Outback in record numbers in Australia? Although the newly designed wagon has a go anywhere attitude, the Outback received new refinements that go beyond its tough drivetrain.

Outback gets new refinements in safety, driving dynamics and infotainment. 2016 Outback now comes with new auto on/off mode that operates the windshield wipers with the headlights. Subaru engineers also retuned the electric power-assist steering to provide “an even more linear and natural feel.” 2016 models also get new infotainment and safety upgrades.

The new 2016 Outback is selling well all over the globe because it has more agile driving dynamics, new exterior styling, better fuel economy and new safety tech features. A new generation of buyers along with the loyal Subaru enthusiasts are attracted to the multi-purpose vehicle down under in record numbers and it’s having a phenomenal year.
