About Subaru Outback

Subaru’s 2016 Outback crossover wagon is one of the few crossover SUVs that can actually fulfill the promises made by its rugged exterior. Unlike the Toyota Venza, Chevrolet Equinox or Nissan Murano, the Outback’s all-wheel-drive system is designed to tackle more than just snowy roads and dusty trails. Its 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-Mode off-road assist speak volumes about the Outback’s ability. The Outback’s luxurious trappings coupled with the latest driver-assist technology, such as Subaru’s EyeSight collision-mitigation and active cruise control, elevate the Outback to the realm of many premium luxury SUVs. The Subaru Outback for 2016 delivers a comfortable ride, precise steering and, with the 2.5-liter under the hood impressive fuel economy.

"I purchased the 2.5iPremium at the end of May and have around 1500 miles during the first month of ownership. I am very impressed with the smooth overall quality of the car. It is quiet at highway speeds and the CVT transmission is ultra smooth. The paddle shifters are a great help in slowing down the car when going down steep hills. The four cylinder engine has adequate power and the brakes are very linear. I have no trouble exceeding the EPA mileage ratings of 25 city and 33 highway. Improvements I would like to see include a manual height adjustment on the front passenger seat,and the ability to program the doors to lock when moving and unlock when parked. Also, when unlocking the door by using the key (instead of the remote button) the alarm goes off. I thought this was a flaw in my car but when I checked the owners manual it shows that this is exactly what the engineers intended. This makes no sense to me."

"We are extremely pleased with this car. Warnings tell you if another vehicle is in your blindspot, if you move out of your lane without signaling: it will stop you if you're about to crash into someone. It's comfortable, plenty of legroom, handles great in heavy rain (sometimes you lose Eyesight in extremely heavy rain, but it comes back quickly)....I can't say enough. We're leasing this one and will get another when our three years expire! I heartily recommend this car."

"After 2 years with a family of four trying to take road trip adventures in a Prius, we decided we wanted a more spacious and comfortable family vehicle and cross shopped nearly everything family oriented on the market, from compact SUV's to mini vans. We initially test drove over a dozen models, and narrowed down to 3 finalists, the Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Santa Fe, and the Subaru Outback. During final test drives the winner was crystal clear.-------------------------------------------------- The Outback has the best overall interior of everything we looked at from comfort of the seats, cleanliness of the dash design, and over all fit and finish quality. Run your hand over gaps in Toyota dash pieces and you will find mold marks, sharp edges, and generally a cheap feeling interior. The Outback build quality and overall interior design feels comparable to the BMW X5. The X5 materials of course feel somewhat richer than the Outback, but at a steep cost premium. -------------------------- Driving the Outback is where the Subaru difference really shines. While the Outback has a lower power spec than most comparable models, the Outback still feels more fun to drive. The high suspension but lower than average center of gravity compared with an SUV makes the Outback buttery smooth on the road. The visibility of the road was the best of anything we drove, and when you move between a car that has poor visibility to the Outback, the importance of good visibility cannot be understated. Even with the relatively low HP rating of the 2.5i engine, the acceleration feels strong thanks to smooth CVT programming and the perfect AWD system. The steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and manual mode add to the fun. On the highway and around town, the Outback was the best drive. -------------------------------------------------------- At the end of our search, had the Outback been the same cost as the other finalists we would have still chosen the Outback. The bonus was that the fully equipped Outback final cost was about $7k less than only a moderately equipped Highlander. The only thing missing is the ability to seat 7 when grandparents visit. If Subaru could some how add the option for old school station wagon rear facing 3rd row seats for small kids, the Outback would achieve a new level of family utility perfection. As is though, we are on cloud 9 driving our new Outback. -------------------------------------------------------- There really is no better all-around vehicle on the market at any price, and yet the Outback manages to be an incredibly good value. If you like to take your family on road trip adventures, this is the best option on the market."
