Subaru have announced the pricing and specifications for the new Outback in the UK, with the model receiving styling updates and an influx of safety tech.
Updated for 2018, the outback has received both interior and exterior design adjustments, including a new grille and redesigned bumpers, wing mirrors and headlights. Inside, the touchscreen has grown an inch (now 8″) on the SE Premium model, and the system is compatible with Apple and Android smartphones and has DAB radio. The SE trim now gets heated front seats and the 6.5″ touchscreen has been updated.
A camera placed below the Subaru badge provides an 180º view from the front, and with side cameras underneath the door mirrors no obstacle is out of view. Lane assist is also included as standard, alongside adaptive cruise, lead vehicle start alert and pre-collision braking and throttle management as part of the EyeSight safety features. Steer responsive headlights are also a new feature.
The Outback is also set up in such a way that in a collision, the engine is forced below the cabin, offering even more assured safety.
The 2018 model is available at exactly the same prices as before the update, with SE trim starting at £29,995 and SE Premium at £33,010.
