The Subaru Outback is a classic SUV with a solid reputation. Its spacious cargo and cabin areas make it great to drive around family and friends.

The Outback’s standard 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine packs a powerful punch. But for more of a boost, you can pay extra for the 260-horsepower turbo engine.

If you ever find yourself in a situation that requires off-roading, the Outback can handle it. But be gentle to ensure the safety of you and the car.

Advanced safety features include:

  • Rear-seat reminder
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward automatic emergency braking
