The Subaru Outback AWD Touring has five seats, two in the front and three in the rear.
There’s plenty of room in the front and back, so you can stretch a bit and roll your shoulders without feeling cocooned.
The driver’s seat is eight-way power with dual memory; and the front passenger seat is eight-way power.
The rear seat is a 60/40 split folding configuration and is equipped with three anchor points for child seats and two anchor points for ISOFIX child-restraint system.
The interior, in nappa leather, is pleasant to the touch.
The new multimedia system’s 11.6-inch touchscreen dominates the front, reminiscent of the portrait-style unit of a Tesla, or even a Ram 1500 Limited that I recently tested. It’s pretty easy to use once you understand the fact that you have to flip the buttons on and off the screen to get everything working to your satisfaction.
Connecting my Android Auto smartphone was straightforward and we had few issues with this setup back in the days I had this Outback.
The charging facilities for your devices include four USB ports: two on the front and two on the back.
Storage spaces include a small shelf under the media display, a shallow, grippy textured shelf for the front passenger, a center console with cover, cup holders between the front seats, as well as the usual bottle holders in the doors .
The cargo capacity of the Subaru Outback AWD Touring, with five seats in service, is 522 liters. With the second row folded, cargo capacity increases to 1,267 liters.
And most of the practical and user-friendly cabin additions can be found in the cargo area, including cargo hooks, folding tie-down points, cargo nets, cargo cover and power outlet.
Overall, the interior is a nice blend of practicality and comfort, with a nice upscale feel.
