A Quick Guide to the Subaru Outback

Subaru Outback

There’s a reason that the Outback is Subaru’s best-selling vehicle. Subarus have a reputation for being reliable cars that are great in harsh weather conditions.

Well, the Outback is the perfect example, and we’re here to tell you why! Let’s talk about the Subaru Outback and why you should consider buying one!

Subaru Outback Specs

We’re going to be talking generally about the Outback instead of just mentioning its impressive 2022 model. Honestly, you can go back in time for the last 10 years and pick up an Outback that’s in excellent shape. Believe it or not, 97% of Subarus sold in the last 10 years are still on the road!

While many believe that the Forester is bigger than the Outback, that’s not exactly the cast. The Outback models are typically longer than the Forester, year after year, offering more room inside with the station wagon design. Foresters tend to only be a couple of inches taller with a design meant for SUVs, making them appear larger.

However, Outbacks are just as roomy and comfortable as their SUV siblings. The cargo space is 32.5 ft³ and 75.7 ft³ including the seating area. Not only that, but they come with similar levels of performance!

Outback Performance

The Subaru Outback is named as one of the best vehicles for snow handling year after year. If you live in a cold area or an area with difficult driving conditions, few cars match the traction abilities of the Outback. Why is that?

Well, because Subaru has perfected their all-wheel-drive system, allowing for optimal traction in any conditions without severely harming fuel economy. Most Outback models also have stellar anti-lock braking systems (ABS), 8.7″ of ground clearance, and newer models have blindspot monitoring.

Match your Outback with the right tires and it all adds up to make snow driving as safe as possible!

However, there’s still the rest of the year to worry about! So, how does the Outback do otherwise?

For a station wagon, the Outback has an impressive towing capacity of between 2,700 and 3,500 pounds while receiving gas mileage of between 26 and 33 mpg, which speaks volumes about the engine!

Also, you’ll notice that newer models have a sign on them that says “PZEV” on the back. This stands for “partial zero-emissions vehicle”. Well, newer Subaru models are very environmentally friendly.

While more attention is drawn to hybrid cars than PZEVs, PZEVs do a better job when it comes to capturing emissions. In fact, the newer Outback models capture over 90% of CO2 emissions, and there’s a warranty on the carbon capture technology of up to 150,000 miles! For the eco-conscious driver who isn’t ready for an electric vehicle, this is perfect for you!
