Compare the Subaru Outback to the Hyundai Tucson

    The new Outback offers more power across the board than the Tucson. The standard Subaru 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® puts out 175-horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, while the available 3.6-liter BOXER engine boasts an impressive 256-horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. The Tuscon's base engine only offers 164-horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.  The turbocharged engine still only delivers 175-horsepower.
  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes as standard equipment on the new Outback, along with sporty roof rails; on the Tucson, AWD and side rails are offered only as optional equipment, forcing you to pay more for the capability that you deserve.
  • Keep the value rolling, with impressing fuel economy ratings in Subaru's iconic wagon--this crossover bests Tucson in both city and highway mpg. What's more impressive about that is when you realize that you'll get this mpg ratings with the symmetrical all-wheel drive system, which is usually touted as a less efficient drivetrain configuration than front-wheel drive.
  • Overall, the Subaru Outback offers an incredible value, packed with high performance and standard features--and, with legendary capability from its Subaru brand AWD, this athletic wagon simply outpaces the Hyundai Tucson.

Compare the Subaru Outback to the Honda CR-V

  • The Outback is wider, higher, and longer than the CR-V, offering more available storage room, more comfortable passenger room, and greater capability in snow, mud, and on rougher roads in Beachwood.
  • Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel-drive system is built from the ground up to provide power and traction to four wheels, and comes standard on all Outback models; Honda's AWD is thrown together from an old front-wheel-drive configuration, and is an expensive addition to CR-V models in Cleveland.
  • While standard horsepower is comparable between the two models, the Subaru Outback offers an available 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine; if you're going to be towing, both engines in the Outback best the CR-V in pulling power for your needs in Maple Heights. 
  • Even though the Honda CR-V has a lot of legendary bluster surrounding it, the Outback outperforms in a multitude of categories. But don't just take our word for it--come check it out for yourself with a test drive near Solon OH.

Compare the Subaru Outback to the Nissan Rogue

  • Like to have the confidence of AWD? Only the Outback comes equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive--the Rogue offers only a pricey addition for a less-capable AWD system.
  • The Nissan Rogue maxes out at just 170 horsepower--the Subaru Outback beats that with both its standard four-cylinder engine and its available six-cylinder engine.
  • Fuel economy for these two crossover SUVs is neck-and-neck, with up to 32 mpg on the highway.
  • Looking for a truly versatile vehicle? The Subaru Outback offers more total interior cargo space than the Nissan Rogue, for more flexibility when traveling.
