After its most recent redesign, Subaru hasn’t employed anything radical for the midcycle redesign the 2018 Outback kicks off. In fact, aside from reshaped side mirrors, a lower and larger grille, and some sound-proof glass, there aren’t many visual differentiators. Given how popular this model is, that’s not a bad thing at all-especially since many of the new options make a real difference.

The 175-hp and 256-hp engines and all-wheel drive carry over, as does the continuously-variable transmission (CVT). The cabin and driving experience is where you’ll notice the lion’s share of the updates. A larger center console, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay functionality is now the norm, while both steering and brakes have been fine tuned to provide a more direct feel. The ride has also been updated with retuned suspension with dampers, for smoother driving. Higher trims also get detail stitching for a more upscale feel.
