New Subaru Outback: pricing and specification

Subaru Outback

Subaru has confirmed specifications and pricing of the 2018 Outback, an update on the current generation model.

The crossover estate has been redesigned to raise cabin quality and refine the model’s safety offerings.

Technology and trim have been improved and the changes come at no extra costs for customers as pricing remains the same as the previous model.

Among the most significant changes to the exterior design for Outback is the redesigned front grille, bumper, door mirrors and headlights.

A new front view camera, placed on the front grille, can monitor a 180-degree area in front of the car that would normally be in the driver’s blind spot. These images, as well as visible guidelines, are displayed on the touchscreen to aide drivers in gauging potential hazards in front of the car and improve overall manoeuvering.

An additional side view camera mounted at the base of the passenger door mirror allows drivers to navigate through narrow spaces with greater ease.

Lane Keep Assist has also been added, which completes the EyeSight driver assistance safety technology suite – included as standard on all 2018 Outback models.

The touchscreen size on top-spec models has been increased from seven to eight inches and is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Outback is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine. It produces 175PS and returns 38.7mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 166g/km.

Prices for the 2018 Subaru Outback start from £29,995 for the SE Model and £33,010 for the SE Premium. Pricing for the new model remains unchanged from the outgoing Outback, with updated features and redesigns baring no additional costs for customers and drivers.
