So far a great vehicle

2012 Subaru Outback Blair Jones - Silver Spring Md., MD 02/05/2016

It's reliable.

Carmax did it again!

2008 Subaru Outback Julie - Asheboro, NC 12/18/2012

This was our 4th or 5th purchase from Carmax and we are loving this one as well. The Subaru Outback is awesome and we are looking forward to using it for many years to come. When we are ready for another one, we will go right back to Carmax!

We buy nothing but Subarus--For good reason!

2014 Subaru Outback John-David Hughes - Auberry, CA 08/13/2015

Frankly, it is a superior iteration of Subaru's automotive eminence. Safe, dependable, stylish, it provides ample room, tremendous safety features--and is stunningly sure footed. In our mountain winters, two things move in snow and ice: Subarus and the Snow Plow. The Subarus lead the plow down the mountain, in variably.

Subaru Outback Overview

The Subaru Outback is versatile and rugged, but also offers plenty of style, comfort, and class. Allwheeldrive comes standard, and there really arent any other midsize wagons that offer everything the Outback is capable of. Having similar ground clearance to a Jeep Grand Cherokee means the Outback can go places that other wagons simply cant handle, and get over rough terrain more easily than most other vehicles of similar size and style. For people who want a crossover SUV in a reasonable price range, the Subaru Outback is definitely worth a careful look.

Subaru Outback History

The 2017 Subaru Outback offers a bit more style than the past model years had to offer, but the trade-off for that style is a little bit of utility. Subaru has the EyeSight avoidance technology suite, automatic high beams and reverse automatic braking. There is a focus on ensuring the driver can see well, and that the SUV will hold up to the enjoyment of offroad experiences. No matter the model year, some key features include:

  • A high level of visibility
  • An off-road ability that is easily above average
  • A larger and more comfortable cabin than what most competitors offer
  • Lower cargo loading and roof heights, for ease of use

How It Drives

With the four-cylinder engine the Subaru Outback is a bit sluggish, and can lack the level of acceleration that would typically be expected. It can also be difficult to drive it smoothly because of that, though the larger engine helps. Even with a bigger engine, though, the Outback can still feel a bit underpowered. The overall driving experience is relatively clean with the larger engine, and steering is comfortable and responsive both on the highway and in more rugged terrain.

Used Subaru Outback Value

When compared with other, similar vehicles like the Kia Sorento and Ford Edge, the Subaru Outback holds its value. Subarus reputation for durability has been ongoing, so anyone looking to buy an Outback can expect it to cost at the upper end of the price range when compared to its counterparts. However, the value people receive when they purchase a Subaru is generally well worth the price, as the vehicle can be expected to be durable.

Design & Performance

The Subaru Outback has a lower roof line than many of its competitors, and its cargo loading floor is also lower. That makes loading up easier, whether you are putting things in the back or using a roof rack or luggage carrier. While performance is not as strong as some other makes and models, the Outback still provides a responsive driving experience. Buyers can expect:

  • EyeSight, hill assist, and a rearview camera
  • Heated mirrors
  • An optional power moonroof and liftgate
  • Available navigation package and blindspot monitoring

Powertrain & Engine

The Subaru Outback comes standard with a 2.5L, four-cylinder engine providing 175 horsepower, along with an automatic CVT that provides all four wheels with power. Getting 17-inch wheels is standard, and 18-inch wheels are optional. Hill descent and hill holding assist are also offered. There are six levels of trim for the 2017 Subaru Outback, and a V6 engine is available with higher levels. Snow-covered highways, rough terrain, and rugged back roads are where the Outback really shines, as its performance is more lackluster on standard roadways.

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
