Speaking of the Subaru Outback 2018 facelift, it receives a redesigned style derived from the current model, earning the new car a more chiseled look. The front fascia is adorned with a revamped grille with bigger openings. The sculpture on the fog lamp has been boosted to be fitted with the fresh and sharper C-Shaped headlamps. The most noticeable change in the Outback 2018 is its all-new alloy wheels while the rest of the body is almost unchanged.

Stepping inside, the interior mostly gets no touch on design, compared to the outgoing model. Most of the improvements lie in the infotainment system and an addition of audio deadening materials for a less noisy cabin. Additionally, the Eyesight tech will come standard on the top-of-the-range version of the updated Outback.


As for the Outback’s engines, it takes over from the pre-facelift model - a 2.5i-S and a 3.6R-S Eyesight. The former is capable of dishing out 173 hp and 235 Nm of torque while the later can generate 256 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Both of them shift via the Lineartronic CVT of Subaru and come along with the Symmetrical all-wheel drive.
