2016 Subaru Outback Overview

The Subaru Outback is rugged and tough, but still small enough to be maneuverable on city roads. This crossover wagon also gets good gas mileage. If you go off the paved road once or twice a year, but still want a vehicle that is built for day-to-day life, this vehicle is a great option.

2016 Subaru Outback History

The Subaru Outback was redesigned in the 2015 model year. Even without too many design changes for the 2016 edition, it feels capable and comfortable. More family-oriented than ever before, the Outback is even more refined. Now, it pairs utility and off-road enthusiasm with interior features in a package families will appreciate.

  • The 2016 Subaru Outback is a part of the fifth generation, beginning with the 2015 redesign.
  • The 2015 redesign tweaked the frame and optimized interior space.
  • The Subaru Outback was introduced in 1994 as a variant of the Subaru Legacy.

How It Drives

The Outback drives just like a midsize sedan, except with over half a foot of extra ground clearance. The Subaru Outback is known for its responsiveness, agile handling, and great ride quality, feeling more like a car than an SUV. The Outback has the unique trait of riding as easily on the highway as it does on a trail. This makes it an ideal car for adventurous spirits with day-to-day commutes.

Used 2016 Subaru Outback Value

At times, it can feel like Subaru created its own segment with the Outback. It does what most SUVs are supposed to do, just with better fuel efficiency, ride quality, and handling. As a result, few cars can truly take on the value of an Outback. Only an upscale car like the XC70 comes close but is a lot more expensive.

Design & Performance

There were very few changes since the 2015 model of the Subaru Outback. It still straddles the line between SUVs and sedans, taking the best of both worlds and placing them in one package. The Outback will surprise you - its rugged exterior hides an upscale interior.

Across the lineup, you can choose between two trim levels based on engine type:

  • The Outback 2.5i, which serves as the base model
  • The Outback 3.6R, which has the stronger engine

The 2.5i has variants like the Premium and Limited. Each are a bit more upscale than the base model, with no change to engine. The Subaru Outback also sets itself apart from having two different performance modes. New for the year is a mode that makes the Outback more of a trailblazer, with another mode that adds more responsiveness when on the highway.

Powertrain & Engine

The engine options are divvied up by trim level. The 2.5i comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, while the 3.6R comes with a 3.6L V6 engine. The latter of the two engines outputs more horsepower and torque than the former, making the 3.6R better at towing overall. Both engine options are paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Though both can handle all rough terrain, the 3.6R has enough power to push through more easily. It may be the better option if you are looking for an SUV that's less like a car and more like a trailblazer.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Subaru Outback's got a lot of ground clearance. This five-passenger crossover wagon is taller than most crossover SUVs with a more rugged appearance, making it great for passing rocky trails or snowy roads without difficulty. Additionally, the base Outback has a wide variety of features, including:

  • Automatic headlights
  • Cruise control
  • Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
  • 6.2-inch touchscreen
  • Four-speaker sound system
