2018 Subaru Outback Research

2018 Subaru Outback Is First in Class


The Subaru Outback enjoys a reputation for versatility and utility that few vehicles can match. The new-look 2018 Outback lives up to that high standard in every way. With refinements to enhance every aspect of the vehicle, the exceptional ruggedness combined with high-end luxury, technology, and comfort makes Outback the most agile, responsive, safe, and fuel-efficient cross-over utility vehicle (CUV) on the market today.

Safety and Value Set the Stage

As an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus Award winner and ALG Residual Value Award winner, with best-in-class fuel-efficiency, it's no wonder Outback holds the record in its class for best-selling CUV with all-wheel drive for the past 10 years. In fact, the 2018 Outback is on so many awards lists, we just can't include them all here! But it sure helps explain why the Outback is the best-selling model in Subaru's lineup.


Available safety features include EyeSight Driver Assist Technology to monitor and respond to traffic in front of and around the vehicle, including blind-spot detection. There's a rear-vision camera with automatic reverse braking and cross-traffic alert. And the advanced safety and security features of the Subaru STARLINK system add extra layers of confidence that vehicle occupants are as safe as can be in all situations.

Perfect Partnership of Performance and Practicality

With six different models to choose from, all with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, there's an Outback that meets the needs of every discriminating CUV segment buyer. For those who insist on the most eco-friendly and economical operation, without sacrificing performance, there's the 2.5i four-cylinder model in four trim levels. For those who prefer more powerful performance, without sacrificing economy, the 3.6R six-cylinder model comes with a robust 256 hp, in two luxurious trim levels.


From family outings and shopping trips to outdoor living adventures and back-country excursions, the Outback has room to accommodate the most ambitious plans. Interior cargo volume expands to over 73 cubic feet, and there's ample room for five long-legged passengers with over 35 cubic feet for their stuff. Exterior functionality gets a boost with standard roof rails and plenty of hauling power for any load, any road, and anywhere off-road.

Tough All-Terrain Traction and Advanced Technology

X-MODE all-wheel drive and almost 9 inches of ground clearance gives the Outback true off-road capability to get you where you want to go, no matter how remote your destination may be. Outback lets you do it with confidence, comfort, and capacity for all your toys and tools.


To make sure you find your way there and back again, Outback offers voice-activated navigation with 8-inch touch screen capability. And to make sure you enjoy the journey, the standard STARLINK multimedia system includes hands-free phone and app integrations including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You truly can have it all, and take it anywhere you want to go.
