X-MODE® engaged. X-MODE® gives you maximum control with a push of a button. The technology of X-MODE® takes command of the engine, transmission, AWD, brakes and other components to help you safely navigate through bad roads, slippery surfaces and even the steepest hills with maximum confidence. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Control leads to confidence, and stability leads to an agility that excites in the Outback. Subaru vehicles are gifted at inspiring confidence behind the wheel, thanks to the inherently stable design of the Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive system paired with the uniquely balanced SUBARU BOXER® engine. This system delivers power to all four wheels for enhanced control on all roads and in all weather conditions—whether they are poor or perfect. It offers excellent side-to-side balance and handling precision, thanks to its main components being aligned longitudinally, while its low centre of gravity creates an especially engaging and responsive drive. The unique advantages of Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD make for exceptionally rewarding handling and empower you to better avoid danger. 04 Cradle Mount System You’ll enjoy more natural handling and a quieter ride in the Outback, thanks to its Cradle Mount System. And in a collision, it allows the engine to retract under the cabin, lengthening the front crumple zone. Tuned Front Strut Suspension Employing front struts and rear shocks, the suspension has been finely tuned for an enjoyable balance between responsive handling and a smooth, comfortable ride.
