New Subaru Outback - Pittsburgh

Bowser Subaru Determines the Value of the 2017 Subaru Outback as Compared to the Competition

If you want to explore how the 2017 Subaru Outback fares against other competition such as the Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sorento and Chevy Equinox, then you have come to the right place. Bowser Subaru has looked into the specifications of these base models to determine the true value of each model when compared to the Outback. Our findings are included below, and our analysis has extended to everything from performance edges to the extra inches of room you are afforded within the interior cabin. Let us know what you think with a trip to our showroom sometime soon!

2017 Subaru Outback vs. Jeep Cherokee

  • Standard symmetrical all-wheel drive in the 2017 Subaru Outback is a major advantage over the Jeep Cherokee, which can't offer the year-round traction of this Subaru model
  • Upgrade your exterior look with the standard aluminum alloy wheels that flash on the Outback. Base steel wheels come with the Cherokee model
  • The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine in the Outback produces more torque than that of the Jeep model
  • Trips to the pumps are mitigated in the Outback, which comes with better fuel economy at an impressive 28 miles per gallon combined
  • With five stars in overall safety crash ratings compared to four stars in the Cherokee, you know which vehicle will generate more peace of mind
  • The Outback wins in the comfort category as well, with better front head, leg and shoulder room to go with more rear head and shoulder space

2017 Subaru Outback vs. Kia Sorento

  • The Subaru Outback is a vehicle that you can feel confident traveling anywhere in. Standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, something that the Kia Sorento doesn't have, uses a real-time reaction design to shift traction where necessary
  • Standard power steering in the Outback also helps to improve handling and the overall ride quality. This isn't an available feature for the base Sorento model
  • The 28 miles per gallon combined in the Outback tops that of the Kia Sorento, so that most of your trips to a gas station will be for refreshments and snacks
  • If you do decide to tow equipment, choose the Outback every time. This Subaru model holds a 2,700 pound to 2,000 pound max towing advantage
  • With more front head room to generate comfortable space for drivers, the Outback boasts a massive 34.5 cubic feet advantage in EPA trunk and cargo space over the Sorento

2017 Subaru Outback vs. Chevy Equinox

  • The 2017 Subaru Outback is famous for the standard symmetrical all-wheel drive system it utilizes, and this is for very good reason. The stability and overall control you can feel when behind the wheel tops what the Chevy Equinox can offer you
  • Five stars in safety crash ratings bests that of the four stars the Chevy Equinox can offer
  • The 28 miles per gallon combined fuel economy is better than that of the Chevy Equinox, which will require you to make more stops and experience less efficiency overall
  • The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine of the Subaru Outback is more forceful in the torque produced than that of the Equinox engine, adding another layer of confidence to your drive
  • With more front leg and shoulder room, drivers and front passengers will note it is easier to relax in the Subaru Outback. Backseat passengers will make this observation in addition, with better rear shoulder space to even things out
  • More trunk space and cargo room for the Outback gives you more flexibility to load your SUV effectively than you would be able to in the Equinox
