apparently Subaru in the US does not provide as robust a warranty as they do for Australian customers. I wonder why.

It really depends upon each regional market and what people in that region expect. It also depends upon what the competition is offering in the same region.

In the US, most brands offer 3 years, 36,000 miles basic and 5 years, 60,000 miles for the powertrain, as does Subaru. A notable exception is Kia and Hyundai who offer 5 years, 60,000 miles basic and 10 years, 100,000 miles powertrain. But this is because they had many reliability issues when they stated and needed something to gain people's trust. It worked and they've stuck with it even after they resolved their reliability issues.

Subaru's do really well in cold climates with a lot of snow. I don't imagine there's a lot of snow down under so perhaps they needed to offer some added incentive. Who knows.
