Trim Levels, Available Features & Pricing Info

Adding to its 2021 vehicle lineup, Subaru of America has recently announced its new Outback, which will be available in October. The 2021 Subaru Outback will remain much the same as the current models, after being completely redesigned for 2020. However, there will be a couple of distinct differences.

New Safety Features

The most distinctive feature on the 2021 Subaru Outback is the addition of the Steering Responsive LED headlights. Subaru has added the Steering Responsive headlights for both the high and low beams to improve visibility while driving at night. The headlight system will follow the steering wheel’s direction to allow for better visibility while making turns and following curves in the road.

Additional safety features include the Passenger Seat Belt Reminder and Rear Seat Reminder. The Passenger Seat Belt Reminder system alerts the driver with audio and visual alerts when any passengers in the front or back do not have their seatbelts secured. The Rear Seat Reminder attempts to eliminate the hazard of forgetting a child in the backseat when the driver exits the vehicle. When exiting the vehicle, the driver is alerted to check the backseat for occupants.

What’s New Inside The 2021 Outback?

Most of the 2021 Outbacks will come equipped with a vertical 11.6-inch touchscreen. The exception is the Base Outback, which comes with a pair of seven-inch units. All trim levels (except Base) feature standard heated front seats and a 10-way power front driver seat with lumbar support. Limited and Touring trims add an adjustable cushion length to the driver seat. Just like the 2020 models, a Wi-Fi hotspot is also available.

Bring On The Weekend!

The 2021 Subaru Outback can rival most SUVs when it comes to cargo space. The cargo floor length is 75 inches with the rear seats folded, and the total cargo space is 75.7 cubic feet. For 2020, Subaru added a hands-free power liftgate and that features remains for 2021. Just wave your hand in front of the Subaru emblem on the back and away it goes.

Another impressive feature on the Outback is the roof rack. The rails swing inward to create crossbars when carrying cargo on the roof and swing back when not being used to avoid added noise and loss of fuel economy.
