Electric power steering for improved fuel economy

In order to improve both steering feel and fuel economy, a new rack-and-pinion steering system with electric power assistance has been adopted. The system is mounted on the front cradle frame at four points, which increases the rigidity of the steering system, and enhances its initial response to driver inputs. Compared to the outgoing Outback, a quicker ratio is used for more immediate steering response.
