MELBOURNE – Jan 15, 2013: Subaru has confirmed it will add its first automatic transmission diesel to its range when it launches the Model Year 2013 Outback 2.0 turbo diesel in March.

The ultra-efficient All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Outback 2.0D will feature Subaru’s newest Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), joining the six-speed manual variants.

Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “Diesel manual Outback now represents around 20 per cent of the model’s sales, so we’re anticipating significant demand for the auto.

“Our best advice is for customers to see their dealer as soon as possible, because if our experience with the manual is anything to go by, we’ll end up with a very strong order bank for this car.”

Mr Senior said existing manual diesel Outback and Forester sales were particularly strong in regional and rural areas, where the cars’ cruising capabilities over long distances highlighted exceptional fuel efficiency, underpinned by the essential Subaru SUV ingredients of AWD, durability, engineering and five-star safety rating.

The new model will be available in entry-level 2.0D, which adds factory-fitted satellite navigation - and 2.0D Premium trims. The Premium adds a variety of features including electric sunroof, leather trim, eight-way power driver’s seat with memory function and electroluminescent gauges with colour information display.

The automatic diesels will share a wide range of other changes in the Outback MY13 line-up, including revised grille, front bumper, foglight surrounds and wheel patterns.

Details and pricing of the MY13 Outback 2.0D CVT will be announced in March.
