Just bought mine, brand spanking new, 2013, "Premium" in Alberta, Canada and it doesn't have any vents in the center console. I think in Canada only the 6 cylinder Limited, eyesight etc has them. In Canada we also don't get the memory seats but only for that same 6 cyl. model. I am pretty sure there are ducts under the front seats, but I will have to confirm when I get home (away for a few weeks now).
I just bought a 13 Outback 2.5 Limited, and no it does not have the rear console vents. I thought it was supposed to have them also. The US models do. I asked the salesman and he looked at me quizzically. It is certainly not the end of the world, but would certainly come in handy for rear passengers. I wonder if the duct makes it's way to the console and all that would be needed is to have the console changed or updated to house the vents??
Apparently this is a US only option. Is this only available on the Limited (which has the dual zone AC for driver and passenger)? If it's only on the dual zone model, which zone controls the air for the rear seats, driver or passenger?
It's in the 100s here in Central TX in mid August and this feature is one of the primary features separating the Outback from everything else I've considered buying. I have a Honda CR-V now and in order for people in the back to be comfortable I have to turn the AC on full blast and point the ducts straight back, not a good design.
I had the manifold fixed, 2 flex pipes and gaskets, engine lights still on,
even after I reset by taking off battery terminals and now airbag light stays on,and
that was recently replaced by Subaru recall.
If you registered your 2018 Subaru for the 3 year free navigation map update, and recently received an email from Subaru saying an update for US-CAN-MEX is available for download - hold off on installing that for now. Much like NAFTA negotiations, it's just US-MEX for now. :wink2:

I just bought a 2016 Subaru Outback Limited withe the Technology Package. Has the 2.5 litre engine.
Thus far I am blown away with the car thus far, as the technology is something else. Trying to understand everything, I have enrolled to go back to university and take an electronics engineering...
