Australian Conditions Used to Develop the Subaru Outback 2015

Australian Conditions Used to Develop the Subaru Outback 2015

The new generation Subaru Outback car sales figures are anticipated to set new records. However, when considering a Subaru Outback, Perth drivers should be assured not only of a great looking vehicle but one which can handle the tough terrain challenges of Australia. The reason Subaru are confident of this is that when developing the Subaru Outback, Australia conditions were used by their team of engineers.

The main reason why Subaru took note of the Australian market before any other is that the severe conditions provided an opportunity for the company to produce the best possible off road Subaru Outback. Perth drivers will be well aware that the Outback was named after our remote, arid and vast regions and the naming is designed to inspire buyer confidence that the vehicle can handle any off road conditions. Subaru quickly realised that Australian conditions provided the best location to test the all wheel drive capability of their new vehicle.

With the new Subaru Outback Perth drivers will find a vehicle which is perfectly suited to the rugged and tough environment native to Australia. The 2015 model was recently launched here and in Tasmania, with buyer feedback looking very positive. The Subaru Outback car sales figures have been very encouraging, with 890 units sold in February. This beats the previous sales high from March 2006 of 829 units. This put the February figures 261.8 percent over last year.

While the Subaru Outback car sales figures are higher for the U.S, the brand recognised that using the extreme Australian conditions would allow the brand to develop a model worthy the world over. According to Managing Director of Subaru Australia, Nick Senior, Subaru looked and listened to the Australian market. This allowed the Subaru engineers to return to Japan and develop a model designed for the tastes, lifestyle and conditions in Australia.

This approach has proved very popular in Tasmania, where the Outback is perfectly suited for the road conditions. The 2015 Outback handles the long rural highways and miles of unsealed surfaces with ease. The aesthetics have also appealed to the Tasmanian buyer and the new generation model was the best seller within the SUV segment according to official VFACTS February sales figures. Tasmania has traditionally been a good market for the all wheel drive vehicle range from Subaru and the 2015 Outback looks set to strengthen the Tasmanian love for the brand.

Subaru has a special relationship with the Australian market and the Japanese manufacturer had an understanding that there was no better place on the entire planet to be when they considered redesigning the Subaru Outback. Perth drivers can benefit from this confidence and enjoy a vehicle which was specially designed for their needs. Whether you like to adventure after the daily commute or enjoy some serious off roading, you can have confidence that the new Outback was built to handle anything Australia can throw at it.
