Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

By: 
edmunds.com

The Stonic looks quite serious despite the colorful accents – it’s for people who think that rainbow-coloured socks are the most outrageous thing they can wear

Pros
Seven-year warranty
Easy-to-use interior
Easy to drive

Cons
Noisy 1.6-litre diesel engine
Interior feels cut price
Tight in the back for passengers

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Better to drive than most other small crossovers, but similarly flawed overall.

Pros
Stylish to look at and agile around tow

Cons
Kia sells more practical cars for less money
