Subaru launches all-new Outback to Malaysians
Kuala Lumpur (29 April 2015) — Motor Image Malaysia, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in Malaysia, introduced the all-new Subaru Outback today, offering customers an experience of supreme performance, responsive handling and luxurious comfort.
“As Subaru’s flagship model, the all-new Outback provides customers with second to none performance, safety and luxury,” said Mr Glenn Tan, Executive Director, Tan Chong International Ltd. “The new model combines luxury with innovative Subaru technologies that enhance the driving experience, efficiency and safety. We hope this will make the Outback an excellent value statement for customers in the Asian region.”
The Subaru Outback comes in a 2.5i-S, 4 cylinder and trademark boxer engine. It features:
- Revamped chassis, steering, suspension and brakes
- New crossover look with a bold body shape, bigger tires and muscular fenders
- Enhanced off-road performance with Symmetrical AWD system and X-MODE
- Improved Active and Passive safety systems
The all-new Subaru Outback is a unique crossover concept that combines passenger-car comfort with the long-distance capabilities and load space of an SUV. While developing the latest generation Outback, Subaru has consistently sought to deliver a crossover with class leading performance, AWD handling capabilities and all round driver and passenger safety.
The all-new Subaru Outback features a new distinct crossover look with a bold, rugged body shape, bigger tires and muscular fenders. Its thicker body evokes strength and confidence. Meticulously crafted, the expressive body panels accentuate the sense of quality and class to be expected from any Subaru.
As well as enhancements to the external look of the vehicle, reduction in wind resistance has been achieved by improving airflow over the rear of the body which also makes a major contribution to reduced fuel consumption at high speeds.
The elegant, top-grade interior includes a dual-dial gauge cluster with a three-dimensional feel and a triple-spoke steering wheel with multifunction switches. Interior materials have been carefully selected to achieve a high level of quality.
In order to improve comfort without compromising the handling, the body frame shape has been completely redesigned to improve the dynamic rigidity of the rear suspension and its mounting positions on the chassis.
In addition to Subaru’s unique Symmetrical AWD system, the new Outback is equipped with X-MODE, capable of enhancing driving performance on poor roads through optimised integrated control of engine, four-wheel drive, braking, and other functions on slippery surfaces.
Like every other Subaru vehicle, the Outback has gone through comprehensive testing that conforms to the highest safety levels of Subaru’s philosophy of ‘All-Around Safety’, which continues to win global accolades with superb Active and Passive safety systems.
In addition to Subaru’s safety technology of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, both the traditional active and passive safety performance have also been enhanced. All airbags have also been expanded and upgraded to give both the driver and passengers maximum safety.
The Outback 2.5i-S is available for booking at all Subaru Showrooms across Malaysia from 29 April 2015.
