Which New Subaru SUV is For You?

Compare the Subaru Crosstrek and the Subaru Outback


2021 Subaru Crosstrek

The Subaru Crosstrek Base and Premium trim levels are powered by a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder BOXER (152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque) paired with a standard six-speed manual or an available Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission. Sport and Limited come standard with the Lineartronic® transmission and get a power boost from a 2.5-liter BOXER engine making 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque.

The Subaru Outback comes standard with the 2.5-liter BOXER engine and Lineartronic® transmission. For Massapequa drivers seeking a little more motivation under the hood, Outback XT and Wilderness trim levels equip a potent 2.4-liter BOXER turbo-four that generates 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.

Like all Subaru's (except the track-focused rear-wheel BRZ), the Crosstrek and Outback come standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive. For even better off-road handling and inclement-weather control, Subaru's X-MODE traction management comes standard on all Outback and Crosstrek models equipped with a Lineartronic® transmission.

Accommodations and Versatility

2022 Subaru Outback

While it may be the smallest model in the lineup, the Subaru Crosstrek offers a comfortable and versatile cabin that defies its "subcompact" designation. It's an excellent option for Long Island drivers seeking adventure-ready capability and versatility with a city-friendly physical footprint. The Crosstrek provides 100.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, with 20.8 cubic feet to spare for your luggage, groceries, or other gear. And with the rear seats folded, available cargo capacity grows to 55.3 cubic feet.

If you're looking for even more passenger space and cargo capacity but don't need a third row, the legendary Subaru Outback has you covered. A midsize SUV that hasn't lost its wagon roots, the Outback boasts 109 cubic feet of total passenger volume and 32.5 to 75.7 cubes for cargo.

Tech and Safety

The Subaru Crosstrek and Outback make it easy to stay connected on the go with Subaru's STARLINK® multimedia infotainment system. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration provide seamless and intuitive access to useful apps and features like hands-free calls and messaging, streaming media, Google and Apple Maps, and more.

The Crosstrek comes standard with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, while an 8-inch display is standard for Limited models and available on Sport. The Outback's base trim level comes with dual seven-inch displays (for infotainment and cabin controls), while all other levels get a new 11.6-inch touchscreen.

Additionally, all Crosstrek and Outback come standard with Subaru EyeSight® advanced driver-assistance technologies (requires CVT), including:

  • Automatic Pre-Collision Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • High Beam Assist
