How the Subaru Outback outshines the Crossover Wagon Competition

Are you looking to take the Hilton Head, Wilmington Island and Georgetown roads less traveled? Need a climbing companion that can accommodate the entire family? The Subaru Outback is a rare blend of ruggedness and refinement thanks to its off-road-friendly design as well as its spacious, comfortable and well-appointed interior.

As such a unique crossover wagon, the Outback doesn't have much in the way of competition, but we know our customers like to do some comparison shopping before settling on a vehicle. So we pitted the latest Outback against the Toyota Prius v hybrid wagon, and you can read the results below:


The Subaru Outback versus the Toyota Prius v

  • The Outback is well-known for its above-average off-road capability, thanks to its standard all-wheel drive system and ample ground clearance. The pavement-only Prius v comes equipped with front-wheel drive -- no AWD option and no chance it's going to take you anywhere but where the highway leads.

  • Not only does the Outback's all-terrain construction ensure you're equipped for whatever Mother Nature throws your way, its standard roof rack with integral crossbars and automatic headlights serve to enhance your adventures. The Prius v doesn't come equipped with either feature.


  • The Outback isn't all brawn. It comes equipped with standard smartphone app integration for an ultra-connected ride. You can experience all that your cell has to offer through the convenience of a dashboard touchscreen. You have to pay more for this luxury with the Prius v.

  • The Outback balances healthy horsepower with competitive fuel efficiency for a well-balanced ride. The Prius v solely values mpg ratings, and as such, it seriously trails behind the Outback in power. The Outback is well-known for its capable performance, and the Prius v is troubled by its underwhelming driving dynamics.

  • The generous and versatile cargo space of the Outback overshadows what the Prius offers, both behind the rear seats and with the second row folded.. Factor in its all-weather capability, satisfying performance, and comfortable ride, and the Outback is adding up to be the road-trip-friendlier vehicle.
