With so many small and midsize SUV choices on the market, deciding on the right one can seem daunting; but if you start with the 2017 Subaru Outback, you'll see there's no reason to even consider another SUV. With exceptional performance features and the reliability that only a Subaru can deliver, the Outback easily outperforms the competition.

The Outback Offers Standard All-Wheel Drive and Greater Value

The 2017 Honda CR-V is a formidable opponent, but the Outback still beats the Honda in nearly every category. While the Honda starts off with a lower base price, the Outback is only slightly higher in base price but offers a whole lot more. For starters, the Outback comes standard with Subaru's legendary all-wheel drive, a feature that will cost you more and that doesn't perform as well on the CR-V. The Outback also offers several more inches of ground clearance at 8.7 inches, which comes in handy when there's slushy snow on the roadways. Subaru's more sophisticated Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system will deliver better handling and traction than you'll find on the Honda CR-V. In addition to enjoying more standard features on the Outback, Kelley Blue Book has also recognized Subaru as having the Lowest 5-Year Cost to Own Ratio of all automotive brands. The Subaru Outback is also the longest lasting midsize crossover in its class as reported by the trusted Automotive Lease Guide (ALG). Overall, you'll enjoy more performance, capability, and overall value with the 2017 Subaru Outback.

The 2017 Subaru Outback Excels at Safety

We know drivers are looking for more than comfort and performance when they're shopping for a new SUV, they also place a high premium on safety. The 2017 Subaru Outback offers industry-leading safety measures that led the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) to award it a Five-Star Overall rating in addition to a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Contributing to the exceptional safety of the Outback is Subaru's exclusive suite of safety features, Eyesight®, which works by constantly scanning the road for dangerous conditions through a set of dual color cameras near the rearview mirror. Some of the innovative safety features found in this suite include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Warning, and Pre-Collision Braking. The Subaru Outback also offers outstanding visibility thanks to the taller, wider tailgate glass and larger side windows that work to reduce blind spots.

Comfort, Performance, and Versatility Come Standard on the 2017 Subaru Outback

Both the Outback and the CR-V offer good cargo space, but the Outback edges out the CR-V with extra length that allows you to accommodate longer items like bikes and slightly more passenger space so you can stretch out and get comfortable. Subaru's inventive integrated roof racking system includes rails and swinging crossbars standard on all models. If you want crossbars on the CR-V, you'll be paying extra for them, and they aren't nearly as easy to use as the Outback's. The Outback wins the contest of performance, too; the standard Subaru Boxer® engine delivers great fuel economy along with exceptional handling and a smooth ride. If you'd like a little more power, the available 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine will get you there, but don't look for an upgraded engine option on the Honda CR-V - there isn't one.
