Most automakers use auto shows as a way to debut new models. Still, Subaru has made an unexpected move by not only unveiling their refreshed 2023 Outback during one of the more popular events but also altering its appearance. Called the aggressive look of the Outback’s front end Trimline, which is significantly changed from past versions and adds to the ruggedness of its overall design: Its bumper housing extends under the headlamps for a prominent grille, giving an SUV-type vibe. The rest of it is glued to the aesthetics of the station wagon. It offers some new 2023 Outback Term level options, additional onboard multimedia tech, and the latest security features. It should maintain a leading family vehicle for years to come.


1.      The New 2023 Subaru

The new 2023 Subaru Outback gets a bolder front grille, which helps it stand out more on the road. It’s not only larger but has been redesigned to feature a few thinner vertical slats for better aerodynamics than before. The new fog lights and beefy wheel arch cladding finish off the trail-ready look well. What will ship the existing Onyx Edition vehicles with the same design as before? However, they’re coming in earlier than expected – as they were previously planned to get an interior and exterior redesign by 2024 at the earliest. Starting early next year (2022), you can also opt for a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter Boxer four-cylinder version of the Outback if you prefer less power but don’t need all-wheel drive; in your vehicle!

The new Onyx Edition includes 18 inch and 20 inch alloy rims, a gray two-tone exterior, a front view monitor, water repellent StarTex seats, dual X mode, and a full-size spare tire.

Subaru has not yet revealed the official spec sheet, but all models include a power door lock, welcome lighting, sound-insulated windshield, front and rear USB A ports, two 12-volt DC power sockets, and one-touch folding rear seats. Its updated features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2.      Engine & Transmission Choices

The 2023 Subaru Outback’s standard engine has 2.5 naturally aspirated cylinders and generates 182 horsepower. Another engine option is a turbocharged 2.4 that has 260 horsepower and produces 277 lb.-ft of torque.

Power drives up to four wheels via drive with active torque vectoring, vehicle dynamics control, and hill descent control. But that does mean that the 2023 Outback could be a far cry from that. The board has a standard CVT gearbox with eight-speed manual mode and steering-mounted pedal shifters.

3.      Outback Fuel Economy

Thanks to the Subaru Outback’s wagon styling and CVT transmission, it’s quite a fuel miser. According to Subaru, the 2023 Outback 2.4 turbo can get an estimated 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway, while the base 2.5-liter engine can go 600 miles on a full gas tank. Furthermore, the Outback 2.4 turbo can tow up to 3,500 pounds which is more than any other Subaru Outback.


4.      Advanced security measures

The carmaker says SGP or Subaru Global Platform. Subaru has improved its chassis for the 2023 Outback, which is now more than 70% stiffer in the torsional and front suspension. Subaru claims that the new Outback’s chassis saves 40% more energy in an accident.



Our 2023 Outback is standard with Subaru’s Eyesight Driver Assist technology. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation.
