The 2021 Outback delivers the optimal blend of SUV capability. It has a car-like ride and handling with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring, Vehicle Dynamics Control and X-MODE with Hill Descent Control.

The Outback provides an impressive 8.7 inches of ground clearance for all models.

Comfort & Convenience

Additionally, the Base includes the STARLINK dual 7.0-inch Multimedia system featuring an upper 7-inch touchscreen with audio controls, and lower 7-inch screen that accesses the climate control system and controls for EyeSight, X-MODE, and other vehicle systems. The multimedia system audio offers AM/FM/HD Radio; Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto; Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity.


To help prevent child and/or pet entrapment, a Rear Seat Reminder is now standard on all Legacy and Outback trims. The system reminds the driver to check the rear seat area before exiting the vehicle.

Also new for the year, a standard Seat Belt Reminder detects passengers in the front and/or rear seating position and gives an audible and visual warning if their seatbelt has not been fastened.
