Subaru Outback 2018

The 2018 Subaru Outback range of configurations is currently priced from $26,989. Our most recent review of the 2018 Subaru Outback resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Family reviewer Nedahl Stelio had this to say at the time: The Subaru Outback served my family of four pretty well this week. I was confident driving it because of the solid frame and sizeable engine. It’s got loads of room and good amount of boot space, plus it has all the latest safety tech. Oh and it looks good so I feel like I match up to other cars on the road.

Subaru Outback 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Outback 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Subaru Forester 2019: Would luggage be thrown forward in an accident?

    The cargo cover will certainly help to restrain the luggage in the event of a crash, but it probably wouldn’t stop it altogether in a major altercation. A proper cargo barrier behind the rear seat would be more effective.

  • What car should I buy for $70,000?

    You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.

  • Subaru Outback: Does it have a good warranty?

    If the shorter warranty of the Subaru is a major concern for you then certainly look at others, like the Sportage or Eclipse, but I would buy the Outback with confidence it will give you a good run beyond the warranty.

  • What's a mid-size SUV with capable off road abilities between $15-20k?

    All three are capable off road if you aren’t planning to go rock climbing, and they are reliable enough to get you to 250,000 km. CVTs are quite reliable now, but how far they will go is anybody’s guess at this moment in time. I would go for a Subaru, either the Forester or the Outback.
