2018 Subaru Outback Brings “General Betterness All Around”

The Outback is a truly beloved car. It’s Subaru’s best seller, and Outback drivers often form bonds with their vehicles as quickly as the first test drive. Kelley Blue Book gives us a peek at the changes for the upcoming 2018 Subaru Outback.

Versatility is one of the biggest reasons drivers love the Outback. With Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive and good ground clearance, the Outback isn’t afraid of off-roading. Rough back roads and trails are no reason to turn around and reroute.

In addition to capably negotiating varied terrain, the Outback provides a comfortable, refined interior for its passengers. This model is the quietest yet, with noise-reducing laminated glass and more aerodynamic side mirrors. Along with great overall comfort, you’ll love the touchscreen and the easy smartphone connectivity with hands-free operation. Download an audiobook or two for the family road trip and you’re not likely to hear complaints from the backseat!

Of course, the Outback also makes a great daily driver. If you commute into Sacramento all week from here in Auburn, you’ll be glad for the estimated 32 mpg on the highway. For a spacious wagon/crossover with good performance and impressive capability, that’s hard to beat.

Speaking of performance- if you want more of it, Subaru offers a 256-horsepower 6-cylinder BOXER engine that makes for a fun driving experience.

Subaru’s EyeSight technology is a driver favorite. It’s a fantastic extra layer of protection from the perils of driving on roads traveled by thousands of other people. These systems include all kinds of safety features like lane-keeping assistance, emergency braking, blind-spot assistance and more.

We expect to have the 2018 Subaru Outback in our Auburn showroom sometime in the coming months. Please let us know if you’re interested in the upcoming model! If you just can’t wait for the release, browse our current inventory and see if something tickles your fancy. The 2017 Subaru Outback is an outstanding vehicle in its own right, and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
