Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MU-X may look and feel a bit more basic than the Everest or Fortuner, but its tough Isuzu truck underpinnings is this SUV’s secret weapon. Isuzu also builds big commercial engines, designed to be reliable and robust, and that DNA is this engine.

Pros
Great new engine
Capable off-roader
Decent third row

Cons
Cabin is starting to age
Boot is smaller than some rivals
No advanced safety equipment

By: 
carsguide.com.au

Like the D-MAX ute on which it's based, the evolution of Isuzu UTE's MU-X seven-seat SUV has remained relatively slow, its latest update headlined by extra torque from its 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (now 130kW and 430Nm, up from 380Nm) and a new six-speed automatic transmission (previously five).

Pros
Rugged and practical
Very comfy ride
Drop-down rear video unit

Cons
Lacking some new safety tech
Turbo lag from a standing start
Rather basic cab trim

By: 
motoring.com.au

Unless you really need three rows of seats, the 2018 Subaru Outback is the sensible SUV alternative.

Pros
Swiss Army knife utility
More refined than ever
Lots of safety tech
Comfortable, roomy interior
Good ride and handling

Cons
Optional 6-cylinder is thirsty
Short on high-end luxuries
No EyeSight on base Outback
Touring’s roof rack lacks cross bars

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Subaru Outback ranked #3 in Wagons. Currently the Subaru Outback has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Spacious seats
Lots of cargo space

Cons
Unimpressive base engine

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Subaru Outback receives a variety of changes. On the outside, the grille and front and rear fascias have been updated for a more aggressive look, and there are new headlights that feature LED daytime running lights. A new side mirror design reduces interior cabin noise. On the inside, the Outback features a new infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a new center console and steering wheel design. Premium and higher trims receive contrast stitching on the doors, seats and dash.

PROS
A more spacious and comfortable cabin than those of many rivals
Roof and cargo-loading heights are lower than those of most SUVs
Excellent visibility in all directions
Off-road ability is above average

CONS
Gas and brake pedal feel make it hard to drive four-cylinder smoothly
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine
