That's why we've put together this informative page packed with details and information about what makes the new 2017 Subaru Outback so special. See how it stacks up to the competition, read about its impeccable safety, world-famous engineering and more. When you're satisfied that the Outback is the right wagon for you, visit us for a test drive at Capitol Subaru in Salem, OR.
Stately and aerodynamic is a good way to describe the attractive new 2017 Subaru Outback. Sculpted with aggressive and sporty lines, the 2017 Outback turns heads easier than the subdued appearance of the Volvo XC70 or the Audi Allroad and looks significantly more grown up than the bubbly FIAT 500L or Ford C-Max. The 2017 Outback boasts alloy wheels, a roof rack with crossbars and automatic headlights at every trim level, features that are becoming more commonplace in the segment, but no other comparable wagon can match the 8.7" of ground clearance you'll enjoy in the Outback. When you're looking for a wagon that's right at home either in town or off the beaten path, the 2017 Subaru Outback truly is best-in-class.
When you compare base trim level MSRP, the 2017 Subaru Outback is competitive among wagons. When you take into account all that you get with a Subaru, it's no wonder that experts such as Edmunds and U.S. News and World Report have heaped praise upon the Outback. You'll find the standard features you expect on every Outback trim level such as air conditioning, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen infotainment system and more. Optional or upgraded trim level features such as leather interior, heated steering wheel, power moonroof or power liftgate aren't dissimilar to the features found on comparable wagons. Where the Subaru Outback shines is in overall interior space and comfort, besting peers such as the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen and the Volvo XC70 in front and rear head room, front and rear leg room and cargo capacity. The Subaru Outback is best when you're looking for all the versatility of an SUV while still maintaining car-like comfort.
Any conversation regarding best-in-class wagons really needs to start and end with all-wheel drive. The 2017 Subaru Outback boasts all-wheel drive as a standard feature at every trim level. If you want to find a wagon that can make the same claim, you'd be looking at luxury models such as the Audi A4 Allroad, BMW 3 Series or Mercedes-Benz E-Class, all of which cost significantly more than the 2017 Outback. In fact, the MSRP on the Mercedes-Benz AWD wagon is more than double that of the Outback. Another feature that you won't find on any other wagon is the Subaru BOXER engine, a horizontally-opposed engine that sits low in the frame for better performance and driver safety. The 2017 Subaru Outback also features a smooth-shifting CVT automatic at every trim level. The Outback boasts fuel efficiency that's comparable in class, matching the VW Golf SportWagen in town and beating both the Audi A4 allroad and Volvo XC70 overall at the base trim level. The 2017 Outback also offers the option of a powerful V6 engine, something that is all but absent elsewhere among wagons. When you're looking for efficient and dependable performance in a versatile wagon that won't break the bank, you're looking for the Subaru Outback.
Subaru safety is legendary and it's certainly present in the 2017 Outback. The 2017 Outback has been named as a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick (Top Safety Pick+ with the addition of the Subaru EyeSight driver assist system) and earned 5 stars in NHTSA crash testing. In addition to these important accolades, the Subaru Outback was declared the Best Wagon for Families in 2016 by U.S. News and World Report and Best Family Car of 2016 by Kelley Blue Book. You'll find all the standard safety features you'd expect on the Outback and other wagons such as ABS brakes, multiple airbags, traction control, stability control and more. Where the Outback stands out is road-gripping all-wheel drive as a standard feature at every trim level and the option of StarLink emergency telematics and the aforementioned EyeSight driver assist system as options as you go up the trim level ladder. Most manufacturers now feature similar optional safety technology, which Subaru helped pioneer. Bottom line: The Subaru Outback has consistently earned the highest possible marks from automotive safety experts, a record that's impossible to beat. The 2017 Subaru Outback is the best possible choice when it comes to your safety and the safety of others while on the road.
