When Subaru launched Outback in 1995, it could be mistaken as a Legacy wagon except for some unrecognizable cosmetic differentiation and its two tone paint. A year after, the redesigned Outback – with its bigger engine, aggressive cladding, and raised suspension, hit the road. But it was in 1997 that Subaru rolled out the Outback Sedan – the first of its kind. Arguably, Subaru should be credited for originating the crossover segment by creating a vehicle with the SUV capabilities of a truck. Because of its unusual design and engineering, the Subaru Outback has been considered a rugged, economical and practical car.
According to some sources, the 2017 Subaru Outback won’t see substantial changes. This is because Subaru has just made tons of modification on the existing 2015 model year (currently on its third year). And based on Subaru’s product cycle, vehicles are usually fully re-engineered only on its fifth year. However, modest changes are commonly introduced on every year model released, so we might see revisions on the Subaru Outback 2017 interior gauges, bumper covers, taillights, headlights, and other minor modifications that will give the vehicle a fresh look.
