New Subaru Outback in St. Louis County

The All-New Subaru Outback is Available near St.  Louis

With 2021 now in full swing, Dean Team Subaru is proud to present the all-new 2021 Subaru Outback for our Ballwin residents. This wagon is a perfect choice for off-road adventures, as well as everyday driving around town.

What's New in the 2021 Subaru Outback?

In the 2021 Subaru Outback, the rear seat reminder is a new feature that drivers will be sure to love. The rear seat reminder is exactly what it sounds like: it reminds those in the front to check the back seats to make sure they are not leaving anything important behind when they exit the vehicle. Parents especially will love this new feature.

Another important update is the addition of steering responsive headlights. This enables a vehicle's headlights to turn in the direction a driver steers. Drivers will be able to check around corners faster, allowing them to react faster to unexpected situations.


The 2021 Subaru Outback has a balanced ride and decent engine options. The standard 182-horsepower 2.5-liter four cylinder engine has plenty of power for most driving situations. However, if drivers want something with more punch, the available 260-horsepower turbocharged 2.4-liter engine is a great option as well.

In terms of gas mileage, the base engine gets an EPA estimated 26 mpg in cities and 33 mpg on the highway.

This wagon has responsive steering and standard all-wheel drive, which gives drivers tight reign over the vehicle. Driver's will feel in control of the road. For those off-road adventures, it features X-Mode off-road driving. This optimizes the wagon for various surfaces like ice, snow, rocky slopes, and mud. Plus, it has an 8.7-inch ground clearance for those bumpy, uneven trails.


The 2021 Subaru Outback features a cabin made with high-end materials. It can fit up to five people, with ample head and legroom. The seats are comfortable and supportive. Cargo space is similarly abundant, with 32.5 cubic feet of space for luggage and items; when the back seats are folded flat, the space increases to 75.7 cubic feet.

For those with children, there are two sets of LATCH connectors on the rear outer seats. The LATCH system is easy to use, and also features a tether anchor and lower anchor for the rear middle seat.


Standard in the 2021 Subaru Outback is the Starlink infotainment system. This includes two seven-inch touch screens to display everything drivers may need. These touch screens, and the overall system, are easy to use. Android Auto or Apple CarPlay makes listening to music from your favorite device easy, especially when connected via Bluetooth. Music can be played from the four-speaker stereo, or drivers can turn on the satellite radio to hear the news. Two USB ports are also available.

Physical knobs to adjust audio and temperature are also standard.


The 2021 Subaru Outback has a long list of standard safety features to keep drivers worry-free while out and about around St Louis. Some of these features include a rearview camera, the already mentioned rear-seat reminder and steering-responsive LED headlights, seat belt warning for rear-seat passengers, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and forward automatic emergency braking. In available trims, there are advanced safety features of top of these.

The steering responsive automatic headlights allow headlights to turn in the direction the driver is steering, allowing drivers to see further around corners. This creates a bigger window for drivers to react to the unexpected.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is the most well-known feature of the Outback among St Louis drivers. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is a safety and performance feature that provides confidence behind the wheel and maintains a commanding grip on and off the road. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive works by evenly supplying power to all four wheels and will automatically shift power from wheels with less traction to those with more to ensure maximum traction and control regardless of terrain or conditions.
