    While all three SUVs are a Subaru and share many of the same features, like standard STARLINK multimedia with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto integration, there are few difference. For example, the Subaru Outback is the only Subaru SUV that comes standard with raised roof rails with integrated crossbars that fold out when needed. The Crosstrek comes standard with raised roof rails on all models and the Forester has roof rails on all models with the exception of the base. At this time the Subaru Forester is the only SUV of the three we are comparing to offer the new Subaru DriverFocus Distracted Driving Mitigation System. Subaru DriverFocus monitors the driver for signs of distraction and drowsy driving and will alert the driver to bring their attention back to the road or to take a break. The Crosstrek is also the only SUV of the three to offer Steering Responsive Fog Lights. But the Crosstrek doesn't offer power rear liftgate; which the Outback and Forester are available with. Another feature that the Crosstrek and forester have is 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity.
