The Greatest Outback of All Time

From its great lakes and great walks, to its great mountains and great beaches, New Zealand truly is a land of greatness. And now none of it is out of reach with the arrival of the Greatest Outback of All Time.

Unlike some goats, the revolutionary Subaru Outback features EyeSight clever crash avoidance technology, increased 2,000kg braked towing capacity, and a tablet-like 11.6” touch screen infotainment system, so you can explore all the above, and beyond, with a great drive. While those other goats might scale steep mountains in search of food, this one does so in search of ski slopes. Or to avoid traffic.

Discover what else makes this the Greatest Outback of All Time and head to your locally-owned Subaru Centre to book your test drive today.

AA and Driven - 2021 Safest Car of the Year


AA motoring

"The now eight-speed SLT transmission was smooth like butter, the AWD system gave superior road gripping confidence, and the 90-per-cent-new 2.5-litre Direct Injection engine was never short of supplying power to the wheels."


"The ride of course is very polished, something you expect of an Outback, even over some of the rock-strewn sections of the Nevis we negotiated. Yes, this Subaru once again went where no other wagon dared tread."

Stuff logo

"Subaru New Zealand were, as always – and rightfully – confident in the Outback’s off-road abilities...[and] anyone who has ever driven one off-road in the past 25 years will immediately know that the Outback is remarkably adept at such things."
