SUBARU AUSTRALIA has today announced the launch of the 2010 Subaru Outback 2.0D, its first ever diesel offering, available now and starting at $40,490.

Powered by a 2.0 litre common-rail turbocharged four-cylinder diesel boxer engine developing 110kW and 350Nm of torque, the Liberty Outback 2.0D is listed with a fuel economy of 6.4 l/100km.

Paired with a six-speed manual transmission - the only transmission offered with Subaru's diesel engine - the Outback 2.0D's peak power is available at 3600rpm, torque available between 1800-2400rpm.

According to Subaru, local tests have seen the Outback 2.0D achieve distances greater than 1100km on one tank of diesel.

“We estimate that driving 25,000 kilometres a year at $90 per tank of diesel would save approximately $2500 over 20 months on an equivalent petrol car," Nick Senior, Managing Director for Subaru Australia said.

The Outback 2.0D is offered in three grades: Outback 2.0D, Outback 2.0D Premium and Outback 2.0D Premium with SatNav.

The full Liberty and Outback range has been awarded a 5-Star ANCAP crash safety rating, with a 3-Star pedestrian safety rating.

Vehicle Dynamics Control, Subaru’s electronic stability program, is standard across the range.
