The Outback received significant updates for 2013. New front end styling is the most immediately noticeable change, but the improvements are more than skin deep, with the Outback 2.5i receiving a new engine. The CVT transmission has also been improved, and Subaru has implemented its optional EyeSight driver-assist system to enhance the safety of the vehicle. The Subaru 3.6R Premium is no longer offered for 2013, though the 3.6R and 3.6R Limited are still available.
