The 2018 Outback features a revised face with a more angular appearance and larger grille openings. Redesigned mirrors, sound insulating glass in the front doors, and insulated rear wheel well liners should make for a quieter cabin. Base models also now get a 6.5-inch infotainment system rather than the previous 6.2-inch unit, and the new tech supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easier connectivity.
