A Buyer’s Guide to the 2021 Subaru Outback

In the market for a new vehicle? Maybe you’re in the 65 percent of people who plan to travel more? Or maybe you’re looking for something that works as a daily driver that handles weather of all kinds?

Well, you’re looking in the right spot. The 2021 Subaru Outback rocks both asphalt and dirt, all at an affordable price. Let’s dive into some of the features that make the 2021 Subaru Outback the right car for you.

The Legend Returns

Let’s start with why Subaru cars maintain a legacy of excellence. The Outback continues to offer crossover sizing with All-Wheel drive, beating out the best at handling on and off-road.

This generation continues that trend with the same level of excellence. Included across the board are the 7-inch display screen, power locks and windows, voice-activated systems, and both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Driving shouldn’t be a chore; it’s an experience. And it’s meant to be enjoyed.


The 2021 Subaru Outback comes with a CVT automatic engine. All trims, up to the Onyx Edition XT, Limited XT, and Touring XT, come with a 2.5-liter flat-four. Higher trims offer a 2.4-liter turbo flat-four.

Earlier trims get 182HP and 176lb-feet of torque, while the upper echelon gets 260-ponies and 277lb-feet.

Fuel Efficiency

The 2.5-liter engines are rated for 26/33 mpg (city/highway). The turbocharged engines dip to 23/30 mpg.

Considering the Outback sits as a crossover SUV, it shines above its direct competitors and will keep you away from the pump and out on the road more.

Cargo Space

An essential for all crossovers are mixing the compact style with lots of cargo room and space to sit. The 2021 Outback doesn’t fail here.

Seats both front and back are spacious, fitting a total of five. The cargo space is no slouch either, offering 33, or a max of 76, cubic feet of space.


The 2021 Outback stands as an IIHS 2020 Top Safety Pick. It scored “Good” in all crashworthiness tests. That’s rear, side, and head-on collision testing.

In fact, on front crash prevention, the Outback received the highest rating of superior for both vehicle-to-vehicle and for vehicle-to-pedestrians.

  • Adaptive cruise control
