Transmission: Automatic Color:Green Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I did not go to Carmax to buy a Subaru. It was not even on my radar! We knew the features that we wanted; safety features #1, cargo capacity for travel, comfort, gas mileage. The salesman showed us what we "thought" we wanted, then suggested to look at one more...a Subaru Outback. I sat in the driver's seat, and told my fiancé...Honey, you need to sit in this! The comfort was amazing. So we took it for a test drive, and the handling and safety features were exactly what we were looking for! We weren't expecting to buy that day, but we did!

About the Subaru Outback

FAQ

Is the Subaru Outback an SUV or a Wagon?

The Subaru Outback is a wagon. This means that that the Subaru Outback is built on a sedan platform, offering the same driving characteristics and passenger seating as a sedan, but with an amount of cargo space that is competitive with what you may find on many SUVs. Wagons such as the Subaru Outback are a great middle-ground between SUVs and sedans and are a good choice for drivers who are looking for some of the best features of both vehicle types.

Can a Subaru Outback Tow?

When equipped with a 3.6L DOHC aluminum-alloy 24-valve six-cylinder engine, the 2018 Subaru Outback has an estimated maximum towing capacity of 2,700 pounds when properly equipped.  

What Vehicles are Comparable to the Subaru Outback?

In addition to the Subaru Outback, there are plenty of other excellent wagons on the market to choose from as well. Other great wagons that we offer at CarMax which are comparable to the Subaru Outback include the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, the Audi Allroad, and the Volvo V60, just to name a few.

What is the Difference Between a Forrester and an Outback?

While the Subaru Outback and Subaru Forrester may look similar at first glance, there are some important differences between these two vehicles. The Subaru Outback features a longer wheelbase than the Forrester, making the Outback more closely resemble a traditional wagon whereas the Forrester is considered to be a compact SUV.

Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories.

Reviews for Subaru Outback

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5 (105 reviews)

Love My Subaru!

I did not go to Carmax to buy a Subaru. It was not even on my radar! We knew the features that we wanted; safety features #1, cargo capacity for travel, comfort, gas mileage. The salesman showed us what we "thought" we wanted, then suggested to look at one more...a Subaru Outback. I sat in the driver's seat, and told my fiancé...Honey, you need to sit in this! The comfort was amazing. So we took it for a test drive, and the handling and safety features were exactly what we were looking for! We weren't expecting to buy that day, but we did!

Pros

  • Braking: My Subaru has so many safety features! Braking is just one of them. A deer ran out in front of me, and the sensors picked it up before I even saw the deer. The alerts went off, and it started to auto brake before I could even respond!
  • Ride and Handling: It is so fun to drive! Handles like a small sporty car, and will turn on a dime. But the ride feels more like a luxury sedan. Win win in my book!
  • Dashboard: the dashboard is easy to read, The dashboard will give you the alerts right in your view without having to look to your navigation screen

- Michelle Ellis, 2017 Subaru Outback
