  1. Subaru UK announces specifications and pricing of the 2018 Outback, an update on the current generation model 2018 Subaru Outback receives upgrades to exterior and interior designs Inclusion of Lane Keep Assist completes EyeSight safety technologies on 2018 model Available in two trim levels, SE and SE Premium Significant upgrades and redesign for 2018 model come at no extra cost to customers Pricing remains the same as , starting from £29,995 for the SE model to £33,010 for the SE Premium model Host to a series of updates, both to the exterior and interior, Outback is a rugged crossover estate, redesigned to raise cabin quality and refine the model’s plethora of safety offerings. The Outback update showcases Subaru’s ‘Better Where It Matters’ brand ethos offering excellent safety, capability and reliability credentials. Boasting a significant upgrade in technology and trim, the changes come at no extra costs for customers as pricing remains the same as the previous model. Among the most significant changes to the exterior design for Outback is the redesigned front grille, bumper, door mirrors and headlights. The hexagonal grille redesign showcases a sharper, more defined shape and incorporates the distinctive Subaru wing design, which draws parallels to the iconic horizontally opposed Subaru Boxer engine. An addition to both the exterior design and the safety suite is a new front view camera, which has been positioned below the marques six-star badge. Placed on the front grille, the front view camera can monitor a 180°-degree area in front of the car that would normally be in the driver’s blind spot. These images, as well as visible guidelines, are displayed on the touchscreen to aide drivers in gauging potential hazards in front of the car and improve overall manoeuvering. Allowing for increased all-round visibility, the 2018 Outback SUV is fitted with an additional side view camera mounted at the base of the passenger door mirror. Displaying the area diagonally in front of the passenger side of the Outback, the resulting imaging allows drivers to navigate through narrow spaces with greater ease. A “view” switch has also been positioned next to the X-Mode button allowing the driver to move between display options on the centre touchscreen. A welcome addition to the Outback is the inclusion of Lane Keep Assist, which completes the EyeSight driver assistance safety technology suite – included as standard on all 2018 Outback models. Lane Keep Assist offers gentle steering control if the vehicle is about to deviate from its lane at approximately 40mph or above. Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist technology suite includes: Adaptive Cruise Control, Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Lane Sway and Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Pre-collision Braking System and Pre-collision Throttle Management. Steering Responsive Headlights are also new to Outback, with the introduction improving driver safety and increasing visibility at night. The headlight beams mirror the driver’s steering input to illuminate corners when turning. Interior changes include a subtle redesign to improve the atmosphere for occupants of Outback. New decorative gloss black panels and silver surrounds create a consistent and sophisticated look, whilst the touchscreen size has been increased from 7” to a new 8” multifunction colour touchscreen for the SE Premium model, which is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ & Android Auto™ and DAB radio functionality. The SE trim level also receives and refresh with an updated 6.5” multifunction colour touchscreen and fabric seating trim with heated front seats. Outback is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre ‘FB25’ petrol unit. Due to the size and shape of Subaru’s Boxer engine, it is installed lower down and further back than a conventional engine for a lower centre of gravity and transitions beneath the passenger compartment in the event of a collision, providing an added level of safety for occupants within the vehicle. The Boxer engine – with its unique ‘punch-counterpunch’ rotational cycle – offers smoothness, low vibration and noise, plus excellent accelerator response. The 2.5L engine produces 175PS at 5,800rpm and 235Nm torque at 4,000rpm. The engine returns fuel economy of 38.7mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 166g/km. Prices for the 2018 Subaru Outback start from £29,995 for the SE Model and £33,010 for the SE Premium. Pricing for the new model remains unchanged from the outgoing Outback, with updated features and redesigns baring no additional costs for customers and drivers.
  2. Aarrrrrrgh! My 2008 Outback 2.5 diesel has died after the oil pump failed. The pain is I just spent a lump on it over the last year inc; 4 brand new tyres, new turbo, new clutch, new brakes and pads etc Subaru delaer and other garages have quoted me twice the vehicles worth to repair / replace... looks like i have to offload it! Such a nice, well looked after car - was my girlfriends weapon of choice for nearly 3yrs (I borrowed it whenever allowed) and invested in it expecting more loyal service. Have a look at the ad - would like for it to go to a good home to be rebuilt and used, not stripped. www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C975291 Any thoughts or suggestions very gladly recieved Thanks

  4. Hello There's a forum for everything isn't there? I've lost count of the amount I've joined.. So I was looking for a 4 wheel drive estate: Audi Allroad (overpriced) Volvo XC70 (too old manish), Skoda (too Skoda) Jaguar X-type (see Volvo) etc. Then came upon reviews for the Outback and magically all the boxes were ticked. I bought a 2009 one with low mileage and a FMDSH a few weeks a go and love it - the sound from that boxer engine, the handling, the look and feel plus i did a bit of grassy/muddy field crossing with it yesterday without a blip. I have only one question thats bugging me - The sound system has an AUX function, but the AUX socket that should be in the armrest box is blank. Can I retrofit this or does it mean a load of hassle? (Nobody has CD's anymore...) Cheers.
  5. Hi all, new to the forum and recently purchased our first Outback. It's a 2005 2.5 petrol, manual, non turbo. We have developed a quite severe knocking/clunking/trying to jump sideways feeling when turning at low speed, forwards or backwards, either direction. It sort of feels like you're running either on a flat tyre or running over large cats eyes! The car also has a loud-ish whining noise that increases with speed. I have serviced the vehicle and changed the front drive shafts as there was slight wear in the CV joints - this has made no difference. The only play I can find in the transmission is a slight movement to the inner CV joints where they enter the gearbox and rear axle. Any suggestions would be gratefully received, scratching our heads here!!

    Hi from Stevenage

    Hi, After forty years of driving other things I've just got my first Subaru. It's a 2007 Outback 3.0 with just over 100k on the clock. First impressions are great - really impressed with the way it handles (and the "Go Faster" button on the steering wheel). I hope to be able to contribute to the forums once I know a bit more about the car but I'll start with a question. What colour is it? It looks silvery but says Grey on the V5. I can't find a paint code anywhere on it. There are a lot of minor dings/scratches that need sorting out so I want to get the correct colour. Have added a picture if it helps. Many thanks, Richard

    hello to everyone! am new here.
  8. Hello, I've literally just joined this forum. I recently traded in my 2010 2.0D for an ex-demo but effectively new 2015 2.0D automatic with all the bells and whistles except a spare wheel. It came with 225/60/18 wheels and Bridgestone tyres. I'm looking for a spare wheel to carry as I don't like or trust the injection foam repair system and I drive down to the Alps in the winter. Does anyone know if there is anywhere I can buy an 18 inch space saving wheel or even a full size 18 inch steel wheel? I took off my rear alloy today to see if it will fit in the well and it does! And the spare wheel compartment lid closes back down flush. I can store the tools etc. under the spare wheel or inside it and there isn't much room for it to move about. If I really have to, I will buy another alloy but it's an extravagance as a spare wheel. Is it possible/legal/safe/madness to use a smaller wheel with a higher profile tyre to bring a 17" wheel up to the diameter of the 18" regular wheels on this car? Thank you for any answers or suggestions.
  9. Hi Folks, I've just bought a 2006 Outback, 3L auto and I am seriously impressed...what a car!! Comfortable, quiet and quick!! I have signed up on here in the hope of gaining some knowledge from the greater minds that are hopefully hanging around on here.... I got it for what I thought was a great price but it does have issues....but hopefully all treatable for not too many pennies!! I thought I'd start with the easy things and fit a new brake light bulb but one of the clips that hold the fitting in place is damaged and I don't think I can get it out without breaking the clip.....could someone point me in the direction of where to get a replacement. I've had a look at ebay and am unable to to spot the right ones. Thanks in advance....
  10. Hi, i need a starter motor for suabru outback 1999 2l . My starter was making cranking noises but it didn't turn the motor so i don't know whats the problem maybe selenoid or something else.

    Parts for a 2006 Outback

    Hullo all. I have a damaged passenger side mirror for my gold 2006 Outback. I cannot seem to find a new one and the only second hand one is priced at £345... which seems a bit excessive to me. Does anyone have a parts place they go to that could help? Thanks in advance.... Andy
  18. As part of my recent browsing I've come across this..... http://www.wheel-fitment.com/car/Subaru/Outback%20(2004%20-%202009)/ Does this mean that OEM alloys from Bug, Blob and Hawk Impreza wrx's are an exact fit for my Outback? Please say yes :D :D :D If not, what do I need to be aware of? Thanks folks
  19. The largely US Subaru Outback forum has this tip to adjust the calculation of the trip computer. Does anyone know if it works on Euro Outbacks? My OB is consistently calculating the mpg between 9% and 20% too optimistically. Although I have a feel for it, it would be useful to be able to apply a correction factor. I know that the tip from the US for disabling the seatbelt warning (so you can turn off the warning that the bag on the seat next to you is not buckled up!) didn't work. Is there an equivalent dealer mode available for EMEA/APAC models?

    Wading depth

    In these days of having to ford roads suffering from flash flooding, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is an official Subaru wading depth for Outbacks?
