Subaru's Outback models were all-new for 2010, but that didn't stop the automaker from adding a few modest additions (and a slight price hike) for 2011.
The equipment updates are rather minor. The Outback receive new manual-folding side view mirrors, and models equipped with the uplevel Harmon Kardon audio system receive XM satellite radio and a three-month trial subscription. The 'ute also receive a rear-view camera thrown into into the power moonroof package, while both cars receive a number of new exterior paint colors.
Regardless of both trim level or powertrain, all 2011 Outbacks receive a $200 price bump compared to the 2010 models. The Outback 2.5i's base price now starts at $23,920, including destination. The 2.5i Premium model (which echoes the Legacy 2.5i in terms of content, but adds fog lamps) runs buyers $25,220. 2011 Legacy 2.5i Limited models -- which add heated leather seats, among other features -- now carry a base price of $29,220.
Those wanting six-cylinder power will, of course, need to pay a little more. Pricing for the base Outback 3.6R now begins at $28,920, Premium trim level Outbacks start at $29,920, and the 3.6R Limited runs buyers at least $32,220.
