The Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited SUV wagon is one of six different trims available from Outback this year. You have a choice review between the 2.5i engine or 3.6R, and three different versions of each. These versions include the Base, Premium, and Limited. The only differences between each of these trims are standard features. The equipment being used remains relatively the same, except for the engine size difference between the two. Every Outback comes included with the popular all-wheel drive.
The 2.5i Limited trim review comes standard with the CVT automatic transmission, and the 2.5-liter four cylinder engine that produces a total of 170 in horsepower and torque. Buyers will also have the option of switching the 6-speed manual transmission if they prefer. Both transmission types were favored based on reviews from within the car industry. As mentioned above, the fuel economy comes in at 22 for the city, and 29 highway when using the CVT. If you switch to the 6-speed you'll experience 19 city, and 27 highway instead. A minor difference that probably won't have much of an impact of car buyers who prefer one type of transmission over the other. In a performance review, the speed of the Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited SUV wagon clocked in at 9.4 seconds after racing to 60 mph from the starting line.
Standard feature reviews on the Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited SUV wagon include the CVT transmission, power everything, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, automatic headlights, All Weather package, an improved Harman Kardon stereo system with 4.3 inch LCD display, power passenger and driver seats, automatic climate control features, and the interior has leather upholstery throughout. You also have the option of adding on the Power Moonroof package which will provide you with a rear-view mirror/camera, and a sunroof on the top. If you decide to add the Moonroof package then you can also opt-in for the complete navigation system which improves on the touchscreen interface and camera systems.
The 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited SUV wagon, and all other trim reviews, also come with complete stability control features, traction control, anti-lock disc brakes, and all-wheel drive. Airbags also exist on the front and sides of the driver and passenger. A brake test review showed that the Outback stopped in 133 feet after going 60 mph.
