Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V

  • The Honda CR-V falls short in terms of fuel efficiency, traveling an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway with a fuel capacity of 14 gallons, whereas the Outback holds almost 19 gallons of fuel and can travel 32 mpg on the highway.
  • Ultimately, the Subaru Outback has the greater passenger volume of 108.1 cubic feet over the 105.9 cubic feet of the CR-V, translating into ampler head and shoulder room for you and your passengers.

Subaru Outback vs. Mazda CX-5

Try as it might, the new Mazda crossover likewise falls behind on the trail. Outback offers a longer wheelbase, the promise of a sturdier, more solid ride, along with an extra mile on highway fuel economy for getting there and more front head, leg, and shoulder room to keep you and a passenger relaxed and enjoying the ride.

Subaru Outback vs Toyota RAV4

  • While the Toyota RAV4 was redesigned recently, its new look cut its interior space a bit short with a passenger volume of 98.9 cubic feet. The Outback offers over 108 cubic feet of passenger space.
  • The Toyota RAV4's base engine may be powerful, but the SUV itself can only tow up to 1,500 pounds, whereas the Subaru Outback has a robust towing capacity of 2,700 pounds, perfect for taking a small camper out to the many nature preserves of Newbury Park.

Subaru Outback vs Ford Escape

  • As with most other new Subaru models, the Outback comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to maximize traction control when the roads in Camarillo get slick. While four-wheel drive is available on the Ford Escape, it is unavailable on the base-level trim.
  • Interestingly, while Ford models are known for their powertrain, the Escape falls short in power and efficiency with its four-cylinder engine generating 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. The Outback's engine generates 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.
