CHERRY HILL, N.J., June /PRNewswire/ — Subaru of America, Inc. today announced the EPA fuel economy results for the all-new 2010MY Outback. The 2010 All-Wheel Drive Subaru Outback achieves up to 24 mpg combined and 29 mpg highway, even while interior volume is up over 7-percent.
Specifically the Outback 2.5i CVT now exhibits better fuel economy (EPA combined) than such competitors as the Toyota Venza, Volvo XC70, VW Passat, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer. The 2010 Subaru Outback now scores better on EPA fuel economy than the much smaller Suzuki SX-4 AWD and has significantly more power coming from its 170HP 2.5L 4-cylinder Boxer engine.
“The all-new 2010 Subaru Outback combines great on- and off-road capability, comfortable space, incredible cargo carrying ability and fuel economy all for a great price,” said Tim Mahoney, senior vice president and CMO of Subaru of America, Inc. “We think this new Outback will really raise the bar in the crossover segment.”
With its unique Boxer engine, segment-leading 8.7 inches of ground clearance, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and fold-away roof rack crossbars, the all-new Subaru Outback has an entry-level price of $22,995 (excluding destination and delivery). The Outback provides an alternative for customers looking for more room than a midsize sedan and features the off-road capabilities of an SUV, with the fuel economy of a small car.
