If you are currently in the market for an SUV, you may have the Outback on your list of vehicles to consider. Here is how the Subaru Outback compares to some of its top rivals.

Subaru Outback vs. Toyota Highlander


    Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

    The road conditions in New Hampshire can get tough, especially during winter. All-wheel drive is a nice feature to have when the snow and ice start to fly.  Luckily, those who buy the Outback can get the benefit of standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. You have to pay extra for all-wheel drive if you want it in a Toyota Highlander.

    Better Ground Clearance

    Are you interested in off-roading? The Outback offers you more ground clearance in order to do that. You can get 8.7-inches of ground clearance when you are behind the wheel of an Outback. This means that the doors to more outdoor adventures are open to you in this Subaru SUV than in the Highlander.

    More Legroom

    Comfort is key when you are on a long car trip. What is key to making you feel comfortable in a vehicle? The Subaru Outback has more legroom for drivers than the Toyota Highlander. You can get 42.8-inches of legroom in this Subaru SUV.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda Pilot

Better Standard Tech Features

When you get behind the wheel of an SUV, it is always nice to have the latest tech at your fingertips. You get a lot more of that in the Subaru Outback than you do in the Honda Pilot. The Outback comes standard with features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Those features are available on the Pilot, but you have to pay extra for them.

All-Wheel Drive is Standard

All-wheel drive is available if you choose the Honda Pilot, but you do have to shell out more cash for it. The Subaru Forester comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive sends power to all of the tires equally when the vehicle notices slipping, meaning you can count on maximum traction.

More Equipped for Outdoor Fun

If you are someone who enjoys the outdoors, the Subaru Outback will be a much better choice than the Honda Pilot. With 8.7-inches of ground clearance, the Outback outshines the Pilot by 1.5-inches. That means that rough and uneven terrain is much more easily navigated when you are behind the wheel of this Subaru SUV.



Subaru Outback vs. Jeep Cherokee


    More Powerful Standard Engine

    People who are looking for an SUV with a strong standard engine will want to choose the 2021 Subaru Outback over the Jeep Cherokee. The Outback is powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Cherokee has a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque.

    More Cargo Room

    Many SUV drivers want to have a spacious interior that affords them a large amount of cargo room. This is another area where the Subaru Outback beats out the Jeep Cherokee. The Outback offers drivers 32.5 cubic feet behind the second row while the Cherokee only gets 25.8 cubic feet.

    Extensive Standard Features

    When you decide to buy or lease an Outback, you can get standard features like SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Adaptive Cruise Control. You can get those features on the Jeep Cherokee, but you have to move up trim levels, which will cost you more money.
