Subaru has released the first images and info of its 2018 Outback crossover wagon ahead of making its public debut at the New York Auto Show next week.

With a focus on more rugged styling the 2018 Outback gets a fresh face inspired by the smaller Impreza and XV, with a prominent C-shaped running light detail framing the more chiselled light units which can be steering-responsive LED headlights.

A reprofiled front bumper gives the Outback’s front end a more upright look, topped by a hexagonal grille inspired by the mechanics of Subaru’s boxer engines. Changes to the front body cladding are designed to increase protection from mud-spray and stone chips with newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels completing the restyle.

On the inside, North American Outback models feature new interior touches including stitching detail on the dash on all but the entry-level model model, extending to the seats and door trims of higher-specced variants.

At the top of the range Java Brown perforated leather with contrasting ivory-coloured stitching, a heated steering wheel, woodgrain trims and gloss black details lift the interior ambience even further.

Infotainment gets a once-over as well, again following the lead set by the Impreza with a touchscreen unit of up to 8.0-inches available incorporating Nuance voice recognition, plus compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. North American customers will also gain access to over the air multimedia updates via WiFi.

Available safety equipment includes a reversing camera, Subaru’s EyeSight Assist including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking, as well as blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert lane change assist, and reverse automatic braking.

Subaru Australia has confirmed to TMR that an updated version of the Outback will be joining a refreshed Liberty in early 2018 and although details about specification changes are still to be confirmed, Australian customers are likely to see the full range of styling changes as shown in New York.
