2006 Outback Overview

The newly redesigned line of Subaru Outback models has been further improved for 2006.The four-cylinder engine on 2006 Outback 2.5 i models is more powerful than last year's models.Also, two new models have been added to the lineup: a four-cylinder Outback sedan and a less expensive version of the six-cylinder Outback wagon.

The Outback was completely redesigned for 2005, so 2006 represents the second model year for this latest generation of rugged wagons and sedans, the sweet spot for buying a new car, according to some.It's bigger and offers more interior space than the previous generation Outbacks.The new cabins are more comfortable, more luxurious, and better looking, and the styling was refined, so the Outback doesn't look as boxy as before.More important, it was re-engineered with a lower center of gravity for improved handling and stability, even though it already boasted those attributes in spades, especially when compared with sport utility vehicles.

The Outback features the latest in Subaru's premium technology, with one of the world's best all-wheel-drive systems paired with boxer-style engines that help it achieve a low center of gravity.As a result, the Outback delivers excellent all-weather capability.It feels secure and confident in a driving rain and is our first choice for gravel roads.Yet it also delivers responsive handling on dry, winding roads and is a comfortable, versatile car for everyday driving.

Though mechanically similar, the Outback offers slightly more ground clearance than the Subaru Legacy and has underbody protection that makes it better suited to gravel roads and deep snow.These cars are truly well suited to the sort of outback you find in America.Whether on paved or unpaved roads, the Outback's handling is vastly superior to that of a sport utility, yet it can stand up to a fair amount of abuse.Outback wagons are an excellent choice for outdoor activities.

Safety is enhanced with dual-stage frontal airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and full coverage side curtain airbags.Active front-seat head restraints are standard.Anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution come standard.Add those safety features with the stability of Subaru's all-wheel drive, and the Outback is at the top of our list for when the weather turns nasty and roads turn slippery.
