Initially, for several years, only manual transmissions (5MT, 6MT) were available.
No signs of an AT mated with any diesel model so far!
Early CVT, available for non-turbo petrol models, could not be used for Boxer Diesel! Diesel torque and vibrations are not easy to cope with…
- Earliest models (MY2008 Legacy/Outback) only came with 5MT
- 2009 and later models: 6MT
- 2013 Outback introduced Lineartronic (CVT) for the diesel.
