Underneath the Subaru Outback is the same platform used by the Legacy - the Outback began life as a trim for the Legacy and the Impreza.

The Outback has a higher ground clearance than its 2 parent vehicles and is styled more like a crossover SUV.

Crossover SUVs are selling in higher numbers in recent years as more and more drivers opt for the car type.

They possess the same benefits such as a high amount of interior space mixed with the low running costs associated with normal cars.

Engine choices for the car have always been boxers like the majority of the Subaru fleet, giving the car a low center of gravity and responsive throttle.

The latest version of the Outback released in 2020 is built on the Subaru Global Platform rather than on the Legacy-specific one.

Other cars that use the Subaru Global Platform include the BRZ/GT86 and the Forester.

Sales of the Outback climbed until 2016 and now year-on-year stick around the 180,000 units sold per year level.
