Subaru Outback vs Toyota RAV4

  • Capability: If you need more towing capability for taking a small camper out to Los Padres Forest near Santa Barbara, the Outback has you covered with a 2,700-pound towing capacity over the 1,500 pounds maximum that the Toyota RAV4 can carry.
  • Interior Space: While both crossovers are well-matched in terms of cargo space, the Outback offers much more head and leg room thanks to a passenger volume of over 108 cubic feet. The RAV4 near Ventura offers only 98.9 cubic feet of passenger space.
  • Features: The Subaru Outback features an available windshield wiper de-icer as well as standard roof rack crossbars, both of which are unavailable on the Toyota RAV4 and must be purchased additionally to give you a better edge during the winter in Camarillo.
  • Entertainment: If you are someone who wants to enjoy their favorite mix CD, the Outback has what you need and comes standard with a CD player. This is a feature that is unavailable on the Toyota RAV4 entirely.
  • Price: The Subaru Outback starts out at the more affordable price, which is almost $1,000 less than the starting point of the RAV4.
