Prices are unchanged despite the addition of a Thatcham Category One alarm/immobiliser across the range. The benefit-in- kind tax band of the entry- level manual 2.0 GL has dropped from 27% to 23% of its P11D price thanks to improved carbon dioxide emissions of 206g/km.
The car also has a 2.1mpg improvement on the combined cycle, rising from 30.7mpg to 32.8mpg. Meanwhile the 2.5 manual saloon records a 1.3mpg improvement from 30.1mpg to 31.4, and the 2.5-litre Legacy Outback auto rises from 28.5mpg to 31.0mpg. The range-topping 3.0 H6 Outback auto shows an advance from 26.9 to 28.5mpg.
