How Does the 2018 Subaru Outback Excel the Competition?

The short answer's in the Subaru crossover SUV's good-old-fashioned structural integrity, from the rigidity of its high-strength unibody to the supple ride atop its four-wheel fully independent suspension system, incorporating a responsive double-wishbone rear suspension. But factor in the combination of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, unique to Subaru, and the automaker's innovative SUBARU BOXER® engine, and the distinction becomes as bright as the vistas 2018 Outback promises for adventure.

Surely, the Subaru AWD system is designed, like the equipment of other automakers, to help 2018 Outback make the most of traction over some of the toughest terrain endemic to the areas outlying our homestead here in Dubuque. But where competing systems employ complex designs, which can negatively affect efficiency, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates a balance in tandem with the 2018 Outback inline-mounted, horizontally laid-out SUBARU BOXER® engine. That means fewer points required for power transfer, a lower center of gravity, and continual torque routing to all four wheels. The result is a crossover SUV firmly planted during maneuvers, whether you're tacking through the crush of snow or across the vicissitudes of rock, sand, and gravel. You won't find such a balance in engine offerings from other automakers, in that they're perpendicularly turned, often requiring more mediate components and intensifying maintenance.

Top-notch assistive elements, then, from Vehicle Dynamics Control to four-wheel anti-lock braking with electronic brake-force distribution and Brake Assist, become 2018 Outback top-offs that are a matter of course. The Subaru sport utility even makes use of a Brake Override System to boot, which activates when both brake and accelerator pedals are pressed simultaneously to reduce acceleration. That's peace of mind, driveway to highway and off the beaten path.

But it's one thing to show our enthusiasm for the 2018 Subaru Outback drive-time. The Subaru AWD experience is one best felt firsthand. Stop by and see us here at Riley Subaru, and we'll be happy to make introductions.
