2024 Subaru Outback price and specs: $1000 price rise hits lifted wagon

The 2024 Subaru Outback has undergone a $1000 price rise across all grades of the lifted wagon, while minor changes have been to its options list.

Subaru Australia says “increased costs associated with the production and logistics supply chain” have led to the Outback’s $1000 price increase. The lineup’s account now opens from $43,690 before on-road costs in base trim.

The turbocharged Outback is now priced from $53,190 before on-road costs in Sport XT guise, while the flagship XT Touring is hit with a $56,990 price tag – just $1000 shy of the most expensive Outback sold in Australia, the 2014 3.6R Premium.

There are only minor tweaks to the Outback for 2024, with a tan interior trim joining the Touring grade’s options list for a $590 premium, in addition to the axing of the model’s Storm Grey Metallic finish – which has been replaced by Cashmere Gold Opal.

Subaru also claims it has made improvements to certain frequently-used buttons in the Outback’s cabin, such as the Auto Vehicle Hold and Auto Stop Start on/off functions which are now accessible via shortcuts on the infotainment screen.

The 2024 Subaru Outback is now available to order.


The Outback has been hit by a $1000 price rise across the board.

All prices exclude on-road costs.


The Subaru Outback is offered with a choice of two petrol engines: a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder, and a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder.

The naturally aspirated 2.5-litre offering produces 138kW of power and 245Nm of torque, while the turbocharged 2.4-litre develops 183kW of power and 350Nm of torque.

Both engines are mated to a continuously-variable automatic transmission (CVT) and an all-wheel drive system.

Fuel Economy

Subaru claims combined fuel economy figures of 7.3L/100km for the naturally aspirated Outback, and 9.0L/100km for the turbocharged XT.

All variants are equipped with a 63 litre fuel tank, though while the 2.5-litre engine can handle 91 RON regular unleaded, the turbocharged drivetrain requires 95 RON premium unleaded or higher.


The 2024 Subaru Outback measures 4870mm long, 1875mm wide, and 1670mm tall (or 1675mm with fixed roof rails), riding on a 2745mm wheelbase.

Boot space is quoted as 522L with the rear seats in place, and 1267L with them folded.

Braked towing capacity in the XT is 2400kg, up from 2000kg in the non-turbo Outback.

Servicing and Warranty

Scheduled servicing is required every 12 months or 12,500km in the Outback, and Subaru offers five years of capped-price servicing.

The Subaru Outback is covered by the brand’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

Three years of servicing using a prepaid service plan will set you back $1387.25 in the naturally aspirated model, while five will set you back $2674.64.

The XT Turbo is, unusually, cheaper to maintain over five years. Three years of servicing will set you back $1406.57, while five is priced at $2646.17.
