If you’re looking for information on a newer Subaru Outback, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Subaru Outback Review
It shouldn’t be all that surprising that the longest-lasting vehicle in its class is the Subaru Outback. After all, Subaru has a very loyal fanbase that come back to Subaru quality year after year. The 2018 Subaru Outback is just as impressive as years past, and here are some stats on why it could be the perfect fit for you.
32 Miles per Gallon
Setting the Outback apart out of the gate is the fact that all-wheel drive comes standard. The standard engine is a 175-horsepower boxer engine that is great for most driving needs, and it also returns 32 mpg on the highway. If you need more power, there is a 256-hp Outback to choose from as well.
73 Cu Ft.
Compared to other SUV’s, the Outback sits a little lower, and that makes loading easier for the most part. Of course, that really depends on how tall you are. The 60/40-split seats fold down to create a generous 73.3 cu ft. of cargo space.
With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Outback is a very capable off-roader. It has a standard XMode feature and also standard hill-descent control to give you maximum traction on rough, slippery terrain. See the 2018 Subaru Outback models for sale near you
In the back seat, the Outback offers plenty of headroom and legroom. As far as headroom, there are 38.3 inches in the back seat. Our Outback interior had upgraded leather and all but the base trim level get dual-zone climate control, keeping everyone comfortable.
In and Out
So even if you’re on the taller side, getting in and out won’t be a problem. However, the higher ride height could make it harder for shorter people to get in and out of on a daily basis.
Take a test drive in the 2018 Subaru Outback and see if you’re prepared for Subaru to make you a loyal fan.
