The Subaru Outback is a versatile crossover that offers the aesthetic appeal of a SUV combined with the excellent handling of a traditional car. It also comes with roof rails which allow the driver to pack along a bike, surf board or just about anything else. Other notable vehicles in this segment include the Honda Accord Crosstour and the Venza from Toyota.
Features for the base model include the ability to plug in most music players, cruise control, an air conditioning system, and keyless start. There’s a total of eight cup holders; something that will come in handy on those long road trips. The Outback definitely delivers when it comes to cargo space with a lofty 34.3 cubic feet of room for all your storage needs. In addition, the Outback conveniently comes with roof rails which can haul cargo weighing up to one hundred pounds.
There are two engine choices available; a V4 2.5 Liter engine with 170 hp and a power powerful V6 3.6 Liter with a total output of 256 hp. The V4 is more than enough for daily commutes and running around town. However some buyers may prefer the added boost of the V6. The engine has a low center of gravity which results in superior control. All models come with All-Wheel Drive which improves control by distributing an even amount of power to all the wheels.
Pricing starts at around $23,195 for the base model and may vary depending on the engine choice and optional packages selected. The Crossover niche is one that is still small but surely growing and Outback proves that it has the potential to dominate this segment.
