Subaru's new generation All-Wheel Drive Outback has sold more than 10,000 for the first time in its history.

With year-to-date (YTD) sales of 10,146, Outback has broken the record with a month of sales still to go.

Outback sales of 962 in November were up 634.4 per cent for the month and 351.5 per cent YTD, according to official VFACTS results.

Overall Subaru sales of 3884 mean Subaru sales are up 7.9 per cent for the year.

Also performing strongly was Liberty, with 314 sales, up 368.7 per cent for the month and 309.2 per cent YTD.

Forester sales of 1137 and XV at 572 in November again underlined Subaru's SUV success story.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: "Outback has had a phenomenal year and shows no sign of slowing.

"It's the right car for the right times and its combination of value, efficiency, engineering, reliability and five star safety are proving irresistible to Australian buyers."

The latest results place Subaru in a strong position to surpass the 2014 all-time sales record of 40,502 vehicles.
