Compare 2018 Subaru Outback

2018 Subaru Outback VS. 2018 Ford Edge

Not even the popular 2018 Ford Edge can hold a candle to the exceptional crossover SUV that is the new 2018 Subaru Outback. There are a number of reasons for this, one of which is for its price and variety. Specifically, the Subaru model has a starting MSRP that is over $3000 less than its competitor, and it comes in a lineup of six trim levels as opposed to four. In other words, you will have more options at your disposal at less cost to you by choosing the former!

The 2018 Subaru Outback is more efficient than the 2018 Ford Edge too. This is because its 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine and Lineartronic® CVT supplies up to 25 city and 32 highway MPG. Contrast this to the Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® and Six-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission equipped on the 2018 Ford Edge which yields only 21 city and 29 highway MPG, and the difference is quite clear. Therefore, you can expect to go farther with our pick.

Another benefit of the 2018 Subaru Outback is its reinforced performance. In fact, it features a Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system standard which ensures better traction than the 2018 Ford Edge which is armed with front-wheel drive. Even more impressive, the Subaru is included with Variable Assisted Steering, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and other technologies that bolster its ability. As a result, this SUV can tow a maximum of 2,700 pounds which is 1,200 more pounds than its rival.

2018 Subaru Outback VS. 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a formidable contender in the SUV market. However, the 2018 Subaru Outback remains a consumer favorite. One reason is because it can travel longer distances with less stops for refueling thanks to its 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine and Lineartronic® CVT that sustains 4 more city and 5 more highway MPG than the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission that comes with its opponent. Its fuel tank has a larger capacity as well, carrying an extra 1.1 gallons.

As with most models in the Subaru collection, the 2018 Subaru Outback makes a desirable selection because even its lowest trim is supported by a Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. Combined with a Traction Control System, Active Torque Vectoring, and other fortifications, its performance is far steadier than competitors like the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Furthermore, its increased grip enables a greater maximum towing capacity that surpasses the Hyundai model by as much as 1,050 pounds.

Most car buyers who turn to SUVs do so because they need better storage solutions. Fortunately, the 2018 Subaru Outback offers just that. Not only is it more spacious than the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in terms of both passenger and cargo volume, but it also has an underfloor compartment in the back and standard roof rails, giving owners more ways to store their luggage and other gear. In other words, our pick will provide you the versatility you need on any type of trip.
