How the 2021 Subaru Outback Compares to the Competition

Drivers in Waterbury have several options if they want to drive a mid-size crossover SUV. The 2021 Subaru Outback is one of the very best options available, but it's only fair to look at similar vehicles and see how well the Subaru Outback compares. Here is how the Subaru Outback stacks up to its biggest competitors.

Subaru Outback vs. the Honda Passport

The 2021 Honda Passport is a mid-size SUV that, at first glance, seems pretty similar to the 2021 Subaru Outback. With a six-cylinder engine and 212 horsepower, the 2021 Honda Passport has more raw power than the 2021 Outback. However, the Outback features standard all-wheel drive, which provides tremendous traction on challenging roads and makes even off-road surfaces navigable. The 2021 Honda Passport has standard front-wheel drive, making it less capable for off-roading than the 2021 Outback.

The 2021 Outback also has a lower curb weight than the 2021 Honda Passport; at 3,635 pounds, the 2021 Outback is more than 300 pounds lighter than the 3,955-pound 2021 Passport. That lower curb weight is one of the reasons the 2021 Outback gets solid EPA Fuel Economy estimates of 26 miles-per-gallon city and 33 miles-per-gallon highway. In comparison, the 2021 Passport's EPA Fuel Economy estimates are 20 miles-per-gallon city and 25 miles-per-gallon highway.

More Towing Capacity Than the Hyundai Santa Fe

If you need to use your vehicle for towing, you can tow quite a bit more with a 2021 Outback than with a 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe. The 2021 Outback has a towing capacity of 2,700 pounds, while the 2021 Santa Fe has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. While you are out on the road, the 2021 Outback's climate control system can make the ride comfortable in any weather. The 2021 Santa Fe doesn't have climate control. For taking your vehicle on adventures on and off-road, the 2021 Outback has all-wheel drive, perfect for getting traction on any drivable surface. It's better suited for off-roading near Norwalk than the 2021 Santa Fe, which has front-wheel drive. If you need a place to put your luggage for a camping trip or vacation drive, you'll enjoy the luggage rack on the 2021 Outback, a feature that the 2021 Santa Fe lacks.

Roomier Than the Toyota Venza

The 2021 Toyota Venza is similar to the 2021 Outback in many respects. Both vehicles use a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine. The 2021 Venza generates 219 horsepower, more than the 2021 Outback's 182 horsepower. However, the 2021 Outback generates more torque, a 176 pound-feet, than the 2021 Venza, which generates 163 pound-feet of torque.

It's inside the cabin where you will really notice the difference between the 2021 Outback and the 2021 Venza. With a total passenger volume of 109 cubic feet, the 2021 Outback has plenty of room for five passengers. The 2021 Venza also seats five, but has just 98.3 cubic feet of passenger space. The difference is even more pronounced if you need room for cargo. If you fold the rear seats down, the 2021 Outback yields 75.7 cubic feet of cargo room. The maximum cargo room on the 2021 Venza is just 55.1 feet. If you want to go on a camping vacation near Brewster, NY, you will be able to bring more stuff in a 2021 Outback than with a 2021 Venza
