The 2018 Subaru Outback: A Cut Above Popular SUV Competition

When it comes to versatile daily drivers, there are many choices on the marketplace. The key is to make the right decision when sorting through an array of different SUVs, and our team at Webster Groves Subaru has some suggestions we think you need to be considering. The 2018 Subaru Outback leads its class in important categories, comes with a slew of impressive awards, and proves that there is always another level when it comes to your commuting expectations.


Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Fuel Economy Difference

The 2018 Subaru Outback comes with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, something that popular SUVs such as the Ford Edge, Jeep Cherokee and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport can't match. This level of road-gripping traction, paired with 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-Mode, gives you a competitive advantage over different road surfaces and when the seasons begin to change. Normally, all-wheel drive can be expected to dip into fuel efficiency as well. But the innovation of the new Outback shows here, with impressive 28 miles per gallon combined. This number tops the competition, proving both performance and efficiency side with the new Subaru model.

Standard Connectivity and Available Technology

Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as part of the SUBARU STARLINK multimedia suite, connects your mobile device and its features to the drive you experience. This means that navigation apps on your phone, music services and connectivity all can be configured through your touchscreen and integrated. This is not a base offering for the Edge, Santa Fe Sport or Toyota Highlander, meaning that entertainment and your ability to connect with the outside world is more convenient inside the 2018 Subaru Outback.
