2024 Subaru Outback pricing up as update for VW Passat Alltrack rival arrives

Outback price rise coincides with light revamp for MY24, but the rugged Wilderness trim is still unconfirmed.

Subaru Outback pricing is up by $1000 across the board – meaning a $43,690 before on-road costs start price – reflecting a minor MY24 model update.

Most notably, Subaru has revamped the multimedia system so that engine auto start/stop and auto vehicle hold touch points persist at the bottom of the main menu to improve usability. 

This is not the arrival of the North American market Outback facelift with visual updates, but rather a light nip-and-tuck for 2024. Subaru Australia did not give an updated arrival for the facelifted sixth-gen Outback.

“Increased costs associated with the production and logistics supply chains has resulted in a price adjustment for the MY24 Subaru Outback range”, a Subaru Australia Spokesperson told CarsGuide.

A new colour – Cashmere Gold Opal – replaces Storm Grey metallic and there’s a Tan Nappa leather upholstery option ($590) for the range-topping Touring AWD trim complementing the existing black and ivory choices. 

Aside from those small tweaks, there are no further changes to the MY24 Outback. Subaru continues to offer the lifted wagon in three trim levels with the option of a  138kW 2.5-litre flat four or a 183kW/350Nm 2.4-litre turbo flat-four. As usual, all-wheel drive is standard.

The 2024 Subaru Outback Touring arrives with the option of Tan Nappa leather upholstery.

Classified in sales figures alongside large SUV rivals such as the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe and Ford Everest, Subaru's Volkswagen Passat Alltrack rival has accounted for 8.0 per cent of sales in the segment this year. 

There’s still no further information on the facelifted Outback that launched in North America markets in July 2022 or the rugged Wilderness trims that are very much on Subaru Australia’s radar.
