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

The entire Edge lineup receives new wheel designs, and two new gray colors join the palette. All models also receive acoustic-laminated glass on the front side windows for extra sound deadening as well as standard rear parking sensors. The infotainment system gets upgraded to the Sync 4 interface and gains a 12-inch display. The top-level ST model adds a six-way power-adjustable passenger's seat and a heated steering wheel as standard.

Pros
Accommodating interior, smooth and quiet ride, well-equipped even at the base level.

Cons
Cabin fit-and-finish needs polish, nondescript handling, rival SUVs look and feel fresher.
