Subaru Outback vs. the Competition

Subaru Outback: Built to Take You Places You've Never Been

The Subaru Outback's legacy of safety, all-wheel drive capability and adventure-ready versatility has helped make the vehicle a flagship of the Subaru brand. But if that's not convincing enough, the team here at Lee's Summit Subaru invites drivers from Kansas City, Lee's Summit, Blue Springs and Independence to see how the popular new Outback stands stacks up to the competition.

Test Drive a Subaru Outback

 

Subaru Outback vs. Honda Crosstour in Lee's Summit

  • The Honda Crosstour doesn't just have a high sticker price than Outback, it also can't compete in fuel efficiency. The Outback's 4WD powertrain offers a combined EPA rating of 29 MPG. Crosstour's front-wheel drive not only can't follow Outback off-road, it's less efficient with a combined EPA rating of 25 MPG.
  • Need more room for your lifejackets, coolers and sleeping bags? Your crew will be squeezed for space in Crosstour's 51 square-feet of cargo space. Thankfully there's plenty of room in Outback, which offers over 72 cubic feet of space for passengers, fishing poles and snacks.
  • Did we mention starting MSRP? Crosstour's less roomy, less capable features starts with an MSRP over $3K higher than Outback.

Subaru Outback vs. Toyota Venza in Lee's Summit

  • Similar to Honda HR-V, Toyota Venza won't follow Outback off-road. It's car-like powertrain comes standard with front-wheel drive that offers a far less engaging, seldom exciting driving experience.
  • Looking for versatile cargo space? Venza doesn't stack up. It doesn't just lack Outback's cargo versatility, but also has less space overall.
  • And if you're main comparison point is price, Venza is no bargain. It's entry-level MSRP starts at over $5K higher than the all-new Outback.
