2017 Subaru Outback Review

The new Outback is just like you. Versatile adventurous and ready to go at the drop of a hat. From the symmetry of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to the balance and power of the SUBARU BOXER® engine the Outback is designed from the ground up for the best driving experience. And it’s a Subaru so you’re safe. The 2017 Subaru Outback® has received the highest possible rating for front crash prevention for 2016 from IIHS. With 6 models to choose from including premium and limited models like the 3.6R Limited there’s a well-equipped Outback that fits your lifestyle. Outback boasts 40 years of intelligent performance and efficiency from the unique Subaru BOXER engine that gets up to 32 highway miles per gallon. Add in Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive X-Mode with Hill Descent Control and up to 143 cubic feet of space and there’s not many places you can’t go. Choose from a wide variety of exterior colors to make the Outback uniquely yours. The Subaru Outback… it’s where adventure begins.
The Outback helps get you where you need to go. An available voice-activated navigation system with traffic puts it all on a 7-inch touch screen display. The Subaru Starlink in-vehicle technology gives you limitless entertainment options and with the new safety and security services there’s even more to keep you safe and your new Outback secure. Loading and unloading is simplified with the rear power lift gate which can be opened with a simple push of a Button.
The Outback features an extensive protection system so you can confidently drive in a variety of conditions. EyeSight driver assist technology does everything form monitoring traffic optimizing your cruise control or even warning you when you sway outside your lane. Your off road excursions will be a little more stable with Vehicle Dynamics Control. It takes steering and braking inputs and helps keep you on your intended path. Be confident in your new Outback the next time the road less traveled throws something unexpected your way.
Choose a 32 mile per gallon 2.5-liter Subaru Boxer engine or a 256-horsepower 3.6R and even distant locations become reachable. Looking at a steep incline? Slippery conditions? Push a button to activate X-Mode with Hill Descent Control and you’ll safely navigate your way through. Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you stability and a better traction in all conditions and with 8.7 inches of ground clearance the Outback has SUV-level capability in a crossover package.
