More space inside new, high-quality cabin

A sophisticated interior design harmonises with the Subaru Outback's subtly muscular and purposeful exterior lines, and endows the much more spacious cabin with a true sense of quality.

The design team's key mantra was "Active and Quality Feeling", and while exploiting the enhanced cabin space available within the new bodyshell, it concentrated on detailed attention to ensure easy-to-use functionality for the driver and passengers, and maximum comfort for extended journeys. Double-seals on all doors and windows enhance refinement by reducing the intrusion of wind noise.

The all-new, larger front seats offer excellent comfort and support, with 10-way power adjustment on the driver's seat (including lumbar support), and four-way power adjustment on the passenger seat. The front seats feature 20% softer cushions and 10% softer backrests.

The driver's seat benefits from more adjustability, with a 10 mm increase in fore/aft slide range, 20 mm more height movement, a 2 degree increase in cushion tilt and 20 mm lumbar adjustment. Rear-seats passengers are also offered enhanced comfort, with the 60/40 split backrest reclinable over a 20 degree range.

Facing the driver, a new instrument cluster features four dials outlined in aluminium rings, and the new three-spoke steering wheel is leather-wrapped, with integrated audio and cruise controls, and a wider range of adjustment - 40 mm for both reach and rake.

The Subaru Outback comes with leather upholstery as standard.
