During the launch of the facelifted Subaru Outback with EyeSight at the Singapore Motor Show, we were told the model would make its Malaysian debut in the second quarter of 2018. While that is still a few months away, an official price list from Subaru Malaysia’s website has provided us with the vehicle’s tentative specifications and price.

The sole Outback 2.5i-S EyeSight variant will go for RM239,688.40 on-the-road without insurance, making it about RM10k more than the pre-facelift model. As before, the Outback will come fully imported (CBU) from Japan.

Moving on to specifications, the updated Outback will be powered by a 2.5 litre boxer-four engine that serves up 175 PS at 5,800 rpm and 235 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm (Singapore spec). Drive goes to all four wheels via a Lineartronic CVT and the automaker’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.

Also part of the powertrain are the SI Drive and X-Mode functions – the latter providing enhanced off-roading capabilities – similar to what you’ll find in other Subaru models like the Forester and new XV.

The equipment list includes LED headlights with C-shaped LED DRLs, powered sunroof, active grille shutter and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. The auto levelling headlights come with an automatic on/off function and are steering responsive as well.

Moving inside, there’s a new eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. A Harman/Kardon sound system, plus a range of other media inputs and improved voice recognition, supplements the entertainment system.

Other items include a dual-zone climate control system with rear vents, rear USB ports, powered driver’s seat with memory function, electronic parking brake, smart entry with push start, PIN code access, powered tailgate and paddle shifters.

On the safety side of things, the Outback gets seven airbags – dual front, side, curtain and driver’s knee – as well as Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), blind spot monitor, hill start assist, Active Torque Vectoring and of course, the EyeSight system.

For now, the new Subaru Outback has yet to be launched in Malaysia, so don’t expect to see it in showrooms just yet. However, order books are now open for the first Subaru model with EyeSight for the Malaysian market. Interested?
