Subaru fitted this unit with a new common-rail injection system, revised oil cooler, radiator and glow plugs. The engine is linked to a Lineartronic CVT which promises an average fuel economy of 46,3 mpg UK or 6,1 liters/100 km.

According to the carmaker, CO2 emissions are rated at 158 g/km. In terms of performance figures, the 0-100 km/h sprint is now possible in 9,6 seconds. All-wheel drive system comes standard while the Hill Descent Control and X-Mode systems also help on difficult road conditions.
