WE TOOK DELIVERY of our long-term Subaru Outback in October last year, and pulled caravans to Sussex and Essex with it soon afterwards.

For long-distance solo drives it's a pleasure, thanks to a great ride and a strong 2.0-litre, 150hp boxer diesel engine. Attach a caravan like our Swift Charisma 535 and little changes. Four-wheel drive and 258ft.lb of torque give plenty of pull while returning around 28mpg fully laden.

WE TOOK DELIVERY of our long-term Subaru Outback in October last year, and pulled caravans to Sussex and Essex with it soon afterwards.

 

For long-distance solo drives it's a pleasure, thanks to a great ride and a strong 2.0-litre, 150hp boxer diesel engine. Attach a caravan like our Swift Charisma 535 and little changes. Four-wheel drive and 258ft.lb of torque give plenty of pull while returning around 28mpg fully laden.

 

Our Outback also handled the recent snowfalls with ease, posing a real alternative to larger, thirstier all-wheel-drive off-roaders. Admittedly, such ability will set you back £26,795, but now there's a new incentive for caravanners.

 

Free pack worth £500

Not only are Subaru refusing the pass on the VAT increase to customers until late March, but now with every purchase of a new Forester, Legacy Tourer or Outback, owners are entitled to a free 'lifestyle pack', each worth over £500.

 

There are six different packs to choose from, including a 'Towing Pack' which includes a free towbar, rear bumper protector and caravan electrics.

 

Other options include a 'Dog Pack' with dog guard, waterproof cargo tray and bumper protector, 'Winter Pack' with bumper guard, rubber carpet mats and front and rear mudguards or a 'Touring Pack' featuring a high visibility emergency pack, aluminium roofbars and cargo partition.

 

For more information on the offer, visit the Subaru website.
