Pricing and specs revealed for the new 2018 Subaru Outback

Coming in two trim levels, the mid-life update for the estate model brings new design detailing and a complete EyeSight system setup.

Subaru has released details of pricing and specification for its updated Outback estate model, with prices starting from £29,995.

Coming with an updated exterior and interior design, the Outback has a new front grille, bumpers, door mirrors and headlights, with a 180-degree view camera also being installed in the front.

A side-view camera is also fitted in the passenger side mirror for further help with manoeuvrability.

Inside, Subaru has given the Outback a more upmarket feel with gloss black surfaces and silver surrounds, as well as increasing the size of the infotainment touchscreen from seven- to eight-inch for the top-end SE Premium model. The SE models also get a refreshed 6.5-inch touchscreen and heated fabric-upholstered front seats.

The model maintains the 2.5-litre petrol Boxer engine found in the pre-updated version, which produces 172bhp and 235Nm of torque.

Subaru has also given the Outback a full complement of the Eyesight safety system by adding lane keep assist, which joins adaptive cruise control, lead vehicle start alert, lane sway and departure warning, pre-collision braking and pre-collision throttle management.

Steering responsive headlights are new additions to the Outback too, which aid to improve driver safety and night visibility.

The new additions have not meant increased costs, with prices for the Outback range staying the same. SE models start from £29,995, while the SE Premium range starts from £33,010.
