Subaru Outback Sport 2023 review: snapshot


The Sport grade sits above in the entry model Outback in the range with its list price of $47,190.

Don’t confuse the Sport with the Sport XT. While both have the same standard features, the XT is the turbocharged version and costs more.

The Sport has a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making 138kW and 245Nm, with a continuously variable auto transmission. Like all Outbacks the Sport is all-wheel drive, too.

Subaru says that after a combination of open and urban roads the 2.5-litre engine should use 7.3L/100km.

Coming standard on the Sport are LED headlights, LED fog lights and LED running lights, roof rails, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside there’s an 11.6-inch central touchscreen with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, power front seats, a proximity key, push-button start, 'X-Mode' drive modes, paddle shifters, a power tailgate, heated front seats and sports pedals.

A cool feature in the Sport grade is water-repellent seats. 

All Outbacks come standard with an excellent array of advanced safety tech including Subaru’s 'Eyesight' system which uses two cameras to scan the road ahead. 

There’s AEB, autonomous emergency steering, lane keeping assistance, rear cross-traffic alert with reverse auto braking and blind-spot warning
