2021 Subaru Outback Features & Size

It's hard to mistake a Subaru Outback for any other vehicle on the road. Its brilliant blend of SUV capability and wagon sensibility is quite unique, and a closer look will reveal impressive standard features. For instance, the standard seventeen inch alloy wheels are sure to catch your eye while a capable stance is accentuated by 8.7 inches of ground clearance for when you leave the paved road behind. For carrying more along for such adventures, the standard roof rails with integrated and retractable crossbars make it easy. When driving at night, standard steering-responsive LED headlights help you better see what's around turns.

Step inside, and you'll be greeted with up to a comfortable 109 cubic feet of passenger space. The rear seats recline, or you can fold them flat to take advantage of up to 75.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. Cargo underfloor storage is standard, and you'll get a retractable/removable cargo cover on all but the entry-level Subaru Outback. Further standard comfort is provided by automatic climate control while eight cup and bottle holders are especially convenient for younger passengers. To get even more for your money, ask us about available upgrades like passive entry with push-button start and the hands-free Power Rear Gate with automatic close.

The available tablet touchscreen makes it easy to stay connected in a new Subaru Outback

Connectivity & Infotainment

Today, most new cars and SUVs come standard with some manner of touchscreen infotainment. That's true of the new 2021 Subaru Outback that enters the market with two touchscreens. However, upgrade above the entry-level model, and you'll get a tablet-like 11.6-inch multi-touch-gesture display. No matter which system you get, seamless integration with most smartphones is standard along with satellite radio and STARLINK® cloud-based applications. What's more, 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability is standard on all but the entry-level model. To get the most out of your journey behind the wheel of a new Subaru Outback, consider upgrading to the available premium audio system by Harman Kardon.

The new Subaru Outback is one of the safest vehicles on the road today

Confidence & Safety

The engineers at Subaru have always put safety as the priority of everything they develop. The latest Subaru Outback is a great example. While it's recently earned top safety ratings from independent industry experts, the engineers have continued to add further safety improvements. For instance, the steering-responsive LED headlights we mentioned are standard on every model, and so are LED Daytime running lights. When traveling dark and empty roads at night, standard High Beam Assist automatically switches the high and low beams when an oncoming vehicle is detected. Of course, you'll also appreciate the confidence that comes with the latest traction control technology and seats that help reduce or prevent whiplash injury when a collision is unavoidable. It all adds up to one of the safest vehicles ever made.

New standard driver assistance keeps you safer in a new Subaru Outback

EyeSight® & Other Driver Assistance Technology

Did you know that Subaru was one of the first affordable SUV brands to offer driver assistance technology like pre-collision braking? It's now been roughly seven years since the Subaru EyeSight® system was first introduced, and the technology is now in its second generation. Aside from automatic pre-collision braking, this suite also includes Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist. When it comes to stubborn freeway traffic, you'll certainly appreciate the inclusion of Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering. All these features and more are standard no matter which 2021 Subaru Outback you choose. Of course, this is a Subaru SUV we're talking about here, so there is even more value to be had. Ask us about available driver assistance features like Blind-Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and even Reverse Automatic Braking. Also available is the recently-introduced DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a Powerful BOXER® engine takes the Subaru Outback just about anywhere

Capable & Efficient Performance

The 2021 Subaru Outback continues to define what you can expect from an adventure wagon while still being comfortable and efficient for your daily drive and weekly errands. It starts with the iconic Subaru BOXER® engine that's flat for a lower center of gravity and smoother operation. At the start of the lineup, this is a 2.5-liter engine with a healthy 182 horsepower and 176 lb/ft of torque capable of towing up to 2,700 pounds. That power is sent to every wheel through the legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system no matter which model you choose. Thinking you might like a little more power in your next small SUV? Jump behind the wheel of a new 2021 Subaru Outback XT model and test drive the turbocharged engine that's pumping out 260 horsepower. That's enough for towing up to 3,500 pounds. No matter which engine you choose, standard performance features include Active Torque Vectoring, Hill Descent Control, and X-MODE® traction optimization.
