We are looking at 2 Outbacks: one is from 2017 premium with leather seats and upgrades with 8,526mi. and another 2019, premium 2.51 with 9,500 mi. Is there much difference between technology, and display. They are both about the same price.

I think the 2019 has auto door locks for one. If they are about the same price and same mileage, I suspect the 2017 has more options.

For 2018, Subaru there were few change for the mid-cycle refresh.

1) They reworked the shock/spring values, to make the vehicle smoother riding...read, they softened the suspension, which some like and other do not.
2) Added sound deadening/insulation, for a quieter vehicle
3) Interior inherited more premium materials
4) As mentioned, new electronics, improved Eyesight functions, larger clock, temp now in dial
5) Steering Responsive Headlights became available with new front/rear facias
6) Head-Unit now had both Android Auto & Apple Car-Play, but also introduced freezing issues, which I believe were finally fixed by several software upgrades during the 2018 model year, incorporated into the 2019 unit production.

Should be about it for the changes on a whole.

Consumer Report ranks the '17 and '19 "better than average", the '18 a bit "worse".
