Subaru adds value to 2018 Outback
Subaru UK has made significant improvements to the 2018 Outback with no increase in pricing compared to the outgoing model.
Chief amongst the updates for the 2018 model year include Lane Keep Assist, which completes the carmaker’s EyeSight driver assistance safety technology suite and is included as standard on all 2018 Outback models.
Styling revisions include new steering responsive headlights, grille and bumper. A forward facing camera on the nose offers a 180º view to alleviate blind spots, for example when approaching an obscured junction. An additional side view camera has been mounted beneath the passenger wing mirror to further aid manoeuvring, as well as an easy to access ‘view’ button for the driver to access different view modes.
Inside, the 2018 Outback benefits from an updated 8-inch touch screen for the SE Premium model (compared to the previous 7-inch screen) and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been added, as well as a few minor design tweaks.
Pricing remains the same as the previous model, starting from £29,995 for the SE model to £33,010 for the SE Premium model. Fuel economy from the 2.5-litre Boxer engine offers a combined cycle result of 38.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 166g/km.
