There are plenty of options in the SUV space. With plenty of cars – large, small, and in-between, it can be difficult to differentiate between them.
Here are the most important things we at Gemini Motors believe you should know about the 2018 Outback.
Features & Trims
The 2018 Outback trims include 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 3.6R Limited, and 3.6R Touring. Bluetooth and roof rails are included in the base model and you can upgrade to the Limited and Premium trims for features such as satellite radio, leather, and heated seats. If you’re looking for a fully-loaded option, then the Touring trims are the way to go.
The 2018 Subaru is an upgrade over previous generations. The interior has plenty of high-quality components including soft-feeling material on the window sills, door inserts, and dash. The Limited trims contain fake wood textures.
The Outback provides a comfortable ride even though wind and road noise can be a bit much. Both front and back row seats are extremely comfortable and provide enough room for movement.
The Outback is better suited to handle rugged terrains. As such, the acceleration is one of its weaker points and its handling certainly has room for improvement. Steering is precise and effortless even though some may think it’s a little heavy. It comes standard with all-wheel drive which is great for mild off-roading.
With 35.5 cubic feet of space behind the upright seats and 73.3 cubic feed max cargo capacity, the Outback is perfectly equipped to carry your equipment, dirty shoes, and everything else you need for your outdoor adventures.
Depending on the trim, the Outback comes with a modern 6.5 or 8-inch touchscreen interface. The 2.5i edition boasts a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and a subwoofer. Blind spot monitoring, rear-crossing traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking are some of the features also included.
If you’re looking for a solid SUV with plenty of cargo room, then you can’t go wrong with the 2018 Subaru Outback.
