Traded 2007 Outback 2.5i for 2011 2.5i Premium with All weather/sunroof/rear view camera package and immediately saw huge improvements. Where do I start: interior room, rear seat with plenty of leg room and recliners, storages, fuel economy, better OEM tires, pivoted roof crossbars, automatic lights, standard stability/traction control, radio/speed control buttons on steering wheel, rear view camera, trip computer with separate outside temperature display, ride quality, up the hill assistance feature, central console arm rest. Excellent car!
AWD,Ride quality and handling,fuel efficiency for a mid-size AWD SUV, interior room, cargo space, new trip computer, rear view camera, pivoted roof rack crossbars, CVT, OEM tires.
Automatic climate control in Premium trim. Bluetooth capability in standard radio system. Engine noise during acceleration. Spark plugs need to be replaced after 30K - in most cars work for 60-120K. Timing belt should finally be replaced with chain. More interior colors. Standard mud guards.
