Subaru is set to launch a freshened version of the Outback/Legacy model in Europe this fall, after its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September. A pre-show press release Friday gave us a first peek at the Outback, shown above.

The Outback and Legacy will showcase Subaru's new SI-DRIVE (Subaru Intelligent Drive) system, which the automaker displayed in the 2007 Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B at the New York Auto Show. SI-DRIVE controls the electronic throttle system response and fuel and ignition curves to modify the engine's performance characteristics, and allows the driver to select between three driving modes: Intelligent, Sport and Sport Sharp. (For full details, see our coverage of the Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B here.) SI-DRIVE will be available in European Outback/Legacy models equipped with a 3-liter engine.

Paris will also mark the European debut of the Subaru Tribeca crossover.
