Less noise than last year
I drove the 2017 Outback and really liked it, except for the wind noise and road noise. I read that Subaru was going to make improvements in that department with new glass and insulation in the wheel wells. I'm glad I waited for the 2018. The difference is very noticeable. The new interface for the infotainment system is nice, too. The fit and finish is excellent. I'm very pleased with this vehicle.
Great Car but Electronic Gremlins
We traded our 2015 Legacy on a 2018 3.6R touring and embarked on a 3000 mile tour of the West. The four was best around town; performance, particularly at 6000 ft. where we live, was adequate at best and the engine note was like rattling a coffee can full of rocks. It was an engine you felt sorry for. The 3.6R is an entirely different proposition - a great, quiet, confidence inducing long distance cruiser with plenty of power from an engine that sounds like it's enjoying itself. We averaged 28MPH with a lot of two-lane driving. Blind spot warning is much better now; a big yellow light nearer the driver that's easy to see. The HD rear view camera is very good, and the cross traffic alert is a life saver (literally) in crowded parking lots. Lane keep departure and assist work like they are supposed to. I think I finally found the right settings on the cruise control, but it takes a while; it brakes later than I would. Perhaps most impressive were the headlights; the auto high beams work so well they can be left on, and I like the diretional function of the headlight very much. But electronic gremlins came early and often: the car locked us out on the first day; the control center/navigation screen has frozen three times - once on a doo wop station that we couldn't turn off, and twice when it was navigating us somewhere. The navigation's voice command is not always syncronized with the onscreen prompts, and I find the Tom Tom navigation ackward to use, with a only a vague idea of where it is. Having to use the touchscreen to adjust the scale on the navigation map is distracting and it won't adjust behind 1/4 mile, at least on mine. Strangely, I find the audio in the 2018 Touring not up to the one in the 2015 Legacy although both are Harmon Karden. The new on is just OK.
The Right Choice
We realized last spring that our 1997 Volvo wagon which we had owned for 17 yrs. was not going to "do us on out". We wanted the same passenger and cargo capacity as the Volvo. Three row SUVs were too big and clumsy and compact SUVs were too small. New Volvos were too expensive and the dealer/service network too sparse. As seniors we wanted all the help we could get with good outward visibility, ease of entry and exit and the full suite of safety/collision avoidance technology. These preferences led us to the Outback and it these matters it delivers. After reading all of the customer reviews on Edmunds.com of the current generation of the Outback I decided that it was worth waiting for the 2018 model which would be quieter and smoother than the 2017s that we drove. Our 2018 Limited 2.5 has met these expectations. We got the car right off the truck ( well, they did wash it) and it had zero defects). In response to other reviewer's comments I can say that; I found the driver's seat to be comfortable during a 1782 mile trip completed in 30 hours of driving over four consecutive days (the passenger seat has yet to be fully tested), mixed brisk (average speed 65) freeway and city driving mpg is 28.3, the CVT transmission will mimic a conventional auto if you want it to (but why bother?), we have managed to defeat the radio's inclination to come on loud when the car is started and voice command is hopeless so ignore it. The navigation system is not made by Garmin; two miles from our home it directs us down a road that was abandoned 40 years ago because it was falling into the sea. My Garmin tucks into the lower corners of the windshield. The heated rear seats delight our guests. Changes that I would make would be to give the passenger seat the full range of power adjustments that the driver's seat has on the top trim levels and to carpet the lower door panels to prevent scuffing.

Subaru Outback vs. the competition

2018 Subaru Outback

2018 Subaru Outback

2018 Honda CR-V

2018 Honda CR-V

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V, when equipped with optional all-wheel drive, is a strong contender to the Outback. Both models have similar interior space and available technology features. With the CR-V, you get better economy and acceleration with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine (compared to the Outback's four-cylinder). But the Outback has better long-range comfort, more ground clearance, and a design better suited for off-road trails.

Compare Subaru Outback & Honda CR-V features

Subaru Outback vs. Subaru Forester

It's natural to take a look at Subaru's Forester when considering the Outback. The Forester's styling is more like a traditional SUV, and its available turbocharged engine provides impressively quick acceleration. The Outback has the edge on size and highway comfort, however. Both Subarus have a robust all-wheel-drive system and extra ground clearance that result in similar off-road performance..

Compare Subaru Outback & Subaru Forester features

Subaru Outback vs. Ford Edge

Compared to the Ford Edge, the Outback comes up short on power. The Edge has a strong turbocharged four-cylinder engine as standard, and its optional V6 engines are also more potent than the Outback's six-cylinder. The Edge is also bigger and roomier. The Outback counters with lower pricing, standard all-wheel drive, better fuel economy and superior off-road capability.

Is the Subaru Outback a good car?

Thanks to its standard all-wheel-drive system, enhanced ground clearance and roomy interior, the Outback is perfect for those with active outdoor lifestyles. It also boasts comfortable front and rear seats, a suspension that easily soaks up the bumps, and an easy-to-drive demeanor. On the downside, the Outback's standard four-cylinder engine isn't a performance machine. But if you want more power, a 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine is available for more authoritative passing power.

How can I get a Subaru Outback deal?

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is EPA rated at a combined 28 mpg (25 city/32 highway). We largely verified these numbers with a posting of 28.9 mpg in our evaluation. Overall, these numbers are on par with the Outback's street-biased crossover competition. The 3.6-liter six-cylinder is EPA rated at a combined 22 mpg (20 city/27 highway). This is also similar to what you'll see from other six-cylinder-equipped crossovers in class.
