Subaru Outback Off-Road-Enhancing Features

As we've alluded to above, the Subaru Outback off-road capability is impressive. But why is that, exactly? A lot of it has to do with the following features and model highlights:

  • Standard Subaru Symmetrical AWD: Subaru Symmetrical AWD is perhaps the crown jewel of the Subaru Outback off-road-enhancing features, and one of the most important things that makes the answer to the question, "Is the Subaru Outback good off-road," a big "Yes!" But what is this AWD system? It keeps power to all four wheels continuously, so you always have maximum grip on Aptos trails and Monterey roads alike.
  • Standard Subaru X-MODE®: Subaru X-MODE® hasn't always been standard on all Subaru models, but it is standard on the new Outback! What is X-MODE® and what does it do for your Watsonville adventures? It's a software program that varies the Outback gear ratio and de-activates the transmission's lock-up clutch to do a better job of diverting power to wheels that need it most.
  • Hill Descent Control: This handy program helps you keep a steady speed when traveling down steep gradients at low speeds.
  • Standard Roof Rails: Need to carry gear or luggage with you on-the-go? With standard roof rails, the new Outback has you covered.
