How does the Subaru Outback Stand up to the Competition?

With so many elite auto manufacturers around the world, competition over who makes the best vehicles is inevitable. Competition is great for the industry, as it forces the best manufacturers to constantly iterate and innovate, delivering genuinely better products to their customers year after year. At Fox Subaru, we're confident that we've chosen the right brand to represent our dealership, and we've shown thousands of drivers from around Belmont and Rockford what standard Symmetrical All-Wheel drive can do.

The Subaru Outback is a capable compact SUV (or wagon, depending on your point of view), which has empowered drivers across the region to explore roads less traveled. Its strengths revolve around its off-road capability, spacious and modern cabin, and cargo capacity. When put up against some of its closest competitors, it's clear that the Subaru Outback is the best option.

When put up against the Ford Escape, the Subaru Outback comes out ahead in multiple ways. From a features point of view, Grandville drivers get better value out of the Outback than you do the Escape. For example, satellite radio and adaptive cruise control are standard features on the base trim level of the Outback while they are only unlocked on higher trim levels of the Ford Escape. On top of that, the Subaru Outback has available features that you can't get on any trim level of the Ford Escape such as a sunroof and ventilated seats.

Meanwhile, when compared to the Honda HR-V, the differences are even more drastic. Under the hood, the Honda HR-V can't keep up with the Subaru Outback in terms of power.

  • Subaru Outback – 2.5-liter four-cylinder – 182 horsepower, 176 pound-feet of torque
  • Honda HR-V – 1.8-liter four-cylinder – 141 horsepower, 127 pound-feet of torque
