Full Review

Those looking for a vehicle that specializes in extreme-weather driving and cargo hauling need look no further than the 2014 Subaru Outback. One of the major factors that allow the Outback to stand out in such a way is its four-cylinder engine, which is configured to lower the center of gravity and allow more specialized handling. The fuel economy is nothing to sneeze at either, with the rating of 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. This vehicle is meant for practical-minded individuals who value safety features and sturdiness over good looks.

The Premium model comes with something called a Cold Weather Package, which includes a navigation system and EyeSight driver assist. On top of that, the Premium models get a new 4.3-inch LCD display radio – though the Harman/Kardon radio is no longer an option. Subaru has gone out of its way to make sure this wagon is as safe as it can be.

There are four models available, with the price depending on the overall quality and amount of special features. Those models are the base 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited. Each of them has their own set of special features, and as you might’ve already guessed, the base 2.5i is the weakest of the bunch since it’s somewhat underpowered. The manual transmission 2.5i models lack certain options, while the navigation radio is not overly user-friendly, with the high-end audio being attached to the Limited models only. We suggest going with the more expensive models because they are powerful and include more features.

The best part about the 2014 Outback is the abundance of advanced safety equipment, a strong six-cylinder engine (available for more expensive models) and a fantastic fuel economy. These are the sort of features that make this wagon such a pleasure to drive in harsh weather conditions.

Admittedly, the Outback is designated for a niche audience, which means that few of us will ever want to purchase one. However, if you’re a rugged outdoorsman or woman, then this is a vehicle is for you. 

The Outback received a significant overhaul in 2010, receiving larger roof pillars, wider back quarter and side windows, and bigger front and back wheel arches. The 2014 Outback, however, doesn’t change things up too much, keeping the same basic look.

Last year, Subaru also redesigned its grille and front to make them much meatier and more polygonal. The grille has two chunky fog lights on each side, with an even chunkier opening under the bumper. These upgrades, however, are not particularly noticeable, so don’t think of them as a major addition to the overall appearance of the Outbacks.

Power and Performance:

The 2014 Subaru Outback has a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder base engine, which is rated at 173 horsepower. All the models are available with a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission, but a six-speed manual gearbox is also an option on cheaper models. The latter is quite a rarity in midsize wagons these days, which means that most buyers will probably overlook it. The car rates at 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway in terms of fuel economy, making it a very practical vehicle to drive.

In terms of handling, the 2014 Outback is impressively nimble for a wagon. Only the new 2013 Ford Escape can truly match it in those terms. Unfortunately, however, the feel of its steering is just average, but that shouldn’t be an issue for most since the vehicle compensates for this with its all-weather tires that can handle a wide range of road surfaces and weather conditions.

Interiors and Special Features:

The interior looks fairly conservative, involving a single instrument panel that faces the driver. The centre part of the dash joins neatly with the console on the tunnel. It’s a simple yet elegant design that will not go out of fashion any time soon.

One of the bigger changes is the switch from the standard seat fabric in favour of something a little more comfortable. The more expensive models also have the option of adding “light matte wood grain” trim to make the interior look slightly more sophisticated.

In terms of size, the 2014 Outback can hold five adults, providing plenty of legroom and a tall roofline. All the seats offer good support for long trips – even for taller individuals. Throughout the car, there are several trays, bins and cubbies for storing various small items. Subaru has also improved roof storage by providing a rail system with crossbars that move back to stay out of the way when not in use.

Just like the rest of the car, the interior design will not win any beauty contests, but it serves its purpose well and that’s all that matters.

Safety features:

As was already mentioned, the 2014 Subaru Outback has fantastic safety features. Aside from things like airbags and other standard features, the car also includes stability and traction control systems, anti-lock brakes and a hill-holder feature that’s designed to keep the car steady on slopes of five per cent or more. Last year, Subaru has also included EyeSight – a stereo camera system that can detect obstacles on the road ahead, feeding the data to a various electronic safety systems, like cruise control, vehicle lane-departure warning and pre-collision braking.

Overall, the car has received plenty of high ratings from various testers, including the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which makes it one of the safest wagons around.
