The Subaru Outback is a mid-size car produced by Japanese automaker Subaru since 1996. Subaru of America executives created the Outback because the SUV craze had at that point reached a pivotal point with customers demanding SUVs and turning their backs on Subaru’s station wagons. Dealers were left clamoring for an SUV-like product to sell. The Outback is a five-door station wagon that shares its chassis with the Subaru Legacy and features Subaru’s four-wheel drive. It is marketed against competing mid-sized body-on-frame sport utility vehicles, as well as other off-road station wagons. Marketing included Subaru’s trademarked phrase, “The World’s First Sport Utility Wagon”. However, this is false, as in 1979, American Motors launched the AMC Concord-based AMC Eagle, which would take that title.

Sales of the Outback began in 1996 in the United States and the models were assembled in the Subaru of Indiana Automotive plant in Lafayette, Indiana. Subaru has been manufacturing four-wheel drive station wagons since 1975. The Outback turned out thankfully to be a success, as it clearly outsold the Legacy. Smart ads featured the Australian “Crocodile Dundee” star Paul Hogan using the Outback in adventurous situations where it was portrayed against its competitors, which included the Ford Explorer. Later, other companies followed suit with similar raised four-wheel drive station wagons as interim models before their own SUVs were launched. Or they were also used if they did not intend to introducing an SUV at all. These included the likes of the Audi Allroad Quattro, the Volvo XC70, the Alfa Romeo 156 CrossWagon and the Holden Adventra. Further, of all of the crossover type vehicles on the market, the Outback is aesthetically more pleasing than the competition. Many crossover vehicles end up looking like an unidentifiable and awkward machine. The Outback however does not suffer from this lack of distinction.
