Subaru Outback Named 2010 Sport/Utility of the Year

October 16, 2009

CHERRY HILL, NJ - The Subaru Outback has been named 2010 Sport/Utility of the Year by Motor Trend magazine. The Outback's victory follows the Subaru Forester's win for the 2009 award, making Subaru the first automaker to win two consecutive Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year awards.

Priced from $22,995, MSRP, and produced at Subaru's zero-landfill plant in Lafayette, Ind., the all-new Subaru Outback is available with either a 170-hp 2.5L four-cylinder boxer engine or a 256-hp 3.6L six-cylinder boxer engine. Built on an all-new platform featuring a 2.8-inch longer wheelbase (now 107.9 inches) that improves ride and interior space, particularly rear seat legroom, the vehicle also features increased hip and shoulder room.

Safety technology on the Outback includes Subaru's ring reinforcement safety system, front, seat-mounted side, and side-curtain airbags and ABS. Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system, which incorporates stability and traction control systems with a roll-over sensor, is also standard equipment.
