Subaru Outback Reaches Legal Age in the US

Do you remember when the Subaru Outback launched in the US? Today Outback celebrates its 21st anniversary.

The Subaru Outback multipurpose wagon turns 21 in the US today. On August 7, 1995, the Subaru Outback was first launched in the US. Since then, its enjoyed a steady climb as one of Subaru’s most successful all-wheel-drive models. The SUV-alternative vehicle had its best July ever, and there’s been 29 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Outbacks sold in the US.

Remember the 1995 model?

The 1995 Outback was a different kind of vehicle, something that caught on quickly in the US. It featured a unique balance of sporty driving dynamics, flexible interior space that the Legacy wagon delivered on-road, combined in a practical wagon package. The model was given a 7.87-inch ground clearance for off-road excursions.

A premium yet tough looking exterior was designed with an exclusive front façade and bumper, large fog lamps with stone guards, large diameter all-season tires, 2-tone body color, and oversized side protectors.

2017 Outback Touring

Today, the 2017 Subaru Outback has grown in size and the new Touring trim is the top-of-the-line for Outback and it gets considerably more comfortable. Inside, all Touring models will feature new Java Brown perforated leather-trimmed upholstery, door panels, and armrests with contrasting ivory stitching. It also gets an exclusive woodgrain interior finish with piano-black switch panel accents. A heated steering wheel comes standard on the new Outback Touring.

While you can still take the 2017 Subaru Outback off-road, the wagon comes with more comfort on the inside and lots of high-tech features. On its 21st anniversary in the US, Outback grows up and reaches legal age.
