2013 Subaru Outback

The big news for the 2013 Outback is a new base engine in the form of the new FB 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder. Power gains are modest on paper, going from 170 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque to 173 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. But city fuel economy increases from 22 to 24 mpg, and highway mileage ticks up one mpg from 29 to 30. For those wanting more power, the 256 hp 3.6-liter boxer six-cylinder is still available.

The biggest news other than the new base engine is Subaru's new EyeSight driver-assist system, integrating adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and a vehicle lane-departure warning system. EyeSight employs a stereo camera system to provide a wider detection angle than comparable radar-based systems at a lower cost.

The top-of-the-line Limited trim level offers standard dual-zone climate control with rear HVAC vents, an optional driver's memory seat, and available voice-controlled navigation with the backup camera display integrated into the 7-inch LCD touchscreen.
