In freshening the 2018 Outback, Subaru made some styling, infotainment, and technical updates. Chief among those is the upgraded interior. Subaru says the Outback is even quieter inside the cabin. Other changes inside include a redesigned center console and more upscale stitching detail on higher-trim models. One long-overdue improvement is the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities to the infotainment system choices. All-wheel drive remains standard, and the engine choices are unchanged: 175-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and 256-hp, 3.6-liter six-cylinder. The 2018 models get a revised air conditioning system that supposedly cools the cabin more quickly, and the new Outback gets a redesigned clock that’s apparently larger and easier to read. The EyeSight safety suite is available. The 2018 Outback arrives this summer. Pricing has not been announced.
