The new, seven-speed programmed Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) is now available in the Subaru Diesel Outback.

"It's been worth the wait," said Neville Matthews, Managing Director of Subaru in Ireland.

"The Subaru engineers, with their unswerving commitment to sheer driving pleasure, have done a typically superb job. The car is a delight to drive."

Launched in Europe in 1996, the original Subaru Outback pioneered the 'Crossover' concept, combining the comfort, interior space and superior on-road handling of a family estate with the off-road capability and ground clearance of an SUV. 

Upgraded for the 2014 model year, Subaru engineers have now realised further improvements to the Outback, enhancing the car's handling characteristics with revised suspension components and the latest incarnation of Subaru's Vehicle Dynamics Control.

However, the most significant development for the Outback is the introduction of a new power-train pairing. 

A world first, Subaru engineers have combined the popular 2.0-litre Boxer diesel engine with a Lineartronic CVT, bringing improvements in driveability, fuel economy and emissions, while also widening the car's appeal.

With the new engine and gearbox combination, the 2014 Subaru Outback will return a 6.3 l/100km (44.8mpg) and 166g/km CO2 on the combined cycle.
