About Subaru Outback

Despite outward appearances, the 2017 Subaru Outback is much more than a high-riding wagon version of the Subaru Legacy sedan. Chief among the differences are the Subaru Outback's X-Mode off-road-assist system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance, which help back up the Outback's visual suggestion that it really can tackle tough off-road situations. And it can; unlike competitors like the Chevrolet Equinox or Nissan Murano, the Outback's all-wheel-drive system is designed to tackle more than just snowy roads and dusty trails. Yet inside, the Outback is downright luxurious, especially in the new Outback Touring model, which adds unique leather and exterior trim. Technologies, like the EyeSight collision-mitigation and active cruise control, elevate the Outback to the realm of many premium-luxury SUVs.

"This is my second Outback, it has gotten me out of two Mercedes Benz. Nothing wrong with the Mercedes, just got tired of the premium gas and higher repair bills. Love my Outback! Heated front and back seats, great gas mileage, esp. from an AWD vehicle. Mine did have a bad battery, but was replaced at no charge by my dealer, which was great. Just put new shoes on it after 62500 miles on the old ones--I guess that wasnt too bad for original tires. I fear no weather, except hail and tornadoes. I have taken 12 and 15 hour trips in it without any problems, very comfortable with the family and luggage. Great room for my two six foot plus sons in the back seats. Look forward to my next one, but not too soon, still enjoying this one!! Cant think of any other vehicle that would get me out of this at this time--highly recommended!!"

"Former VW, then Honda-owner3 civics. Had to make a change. Wanted to go for an SUV/compact. Kept my options w i d e open, and used this guide extensively (thanks!). Really hard to beat the CRV/Rav4, so for a year, I was mulling these two over, after testing-driving EVERY competitor. One last check: how do the CRV/Rav4 do in the snow? THEN I saw a video, and out pops the Subaru Forrester. I read the reviews here, poped over to a local dealer and checked it out. OK, the Forrester is fine, BUT the Outback has an adjustable roof rack, which on other Subaru has. Back seat space; great! Fold down seats for hauling stuff, also excellent. I can load an adult bike inside, with the seats down and gate closed. And, lets not forget about the snowbacked out of a foot of snow, and the plowed pile, with no issue. Tested on a good steep hill while it was really snowing with 8 inches on the ground; halfway up, I stopped; then continued. Awesome! No more changing summer/snow tires! Now, the really cool part: I thought the mileage would be not so swell, and initially I was not shouting for joy, but I read how to improve that, and here is my current scene: With my latest trip recording 5,000 miles, my average MPG is 35. Vehicle MPG since owned: 32. IMPRESSIVE. So yes, Im sold. Very happy with the car so far, although I do sorely miss not driving a standard transmission. Best of luck, readers."

"Just told delivery last week, so only a 100+ miles for a first impression. Bought the base 2.5i trim level with the intention of adding OEM accessories later. Traded in a 2015 Sonata Sport 2.0T because we wanted a AWD SUV/wagon for the mid-west winters. The Subaru is very well put together, smooth riding and quite for the type of vehicle it is. The 2.5 four cylinder is surprisingly peppy with plenty of passing and on-ramp acceleration. The interior materials are high quality for a base trim level. Plenty of storage in back without folding the second row seats down. Drivers 360 visibility is excellent. If your 6 foot or taller, all around leg room is good in front and adequate in the second row. Subaru reportedly in one of the safest and most durable car brands out there. We intend to keep this one for awhile, so well see."
