More than just a wagon, the Outback is an intriguing alternative to a traditional midsized SUV. It has more cargo space than most seemingly larger competitors, less thirst for fuel, and a lower price. Functionally, it does everything most midsized SUVs can do -- except tow a heavy load. Subaru has split the difference between a wagon and a crossover, creating a winning combination.

What Owners Say

"ride is well controlled in all conditions with nunerous tracction and skid control features, Four cylinder is adeqate for all ordinary driving needs. Steering, braking, and small turning circle are great features."

MICHAEL M., CT (2015 Subaru Outback)

"The acceleration is so so but I guess acceptable for a 4-cylinder. I do not like the lack of control over certain functions like lane departure, and control over other functions when in reverse."

TIM R., NM (2015 Subaru Outback)

"I purchased the 6 cylinder engine in my Subaru. It has excellent acceleration and power to pull a 1800 lb boat. I have never owned a car with this kind of response."

Anonymous, MI (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Could use a little more power but it has handled everything so far"

RUDY G., UT (2015 Subaru Outback)

"It has a very touchy acceleration, almost a lurching effect. The dealer says this is normal because of the type of transmission that is used to give better gas mileage. It still is uncomfortable."

CHRISTEN A., WA (2015 Subaru Outback)

"handling"

Anonymous, FL (2015 Subaru Outback)

"It handles solidly for an SUV and the acceleration is very good."

BEN B., NC (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Too much delay when transmission engages into Drive"

GLEN J., OR (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Somewhat sluggish acceleration until it warms up, then pretty peppy, possibly because of the unusual engineering of the transmission"

Anonymous, CO (2015 Subaru Outback)

"for a very capable AWD with high ground clearance, the steering is tight, and car feels comfortable cornering. the 3.6R performs very well, and the mock shifting of the CVT is kind of exciting when you put your foot into it."

BENJAMIN V., CA (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Engine very noisy during acceleration, but is very quiet otherwise."

STEPHEN M., OR (2015 Subaru Outback)

"sits up high, nice ride"

STEVEN L., NV (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Electronic parking brake should release when stepping on the gas. Doesn't always release automatically. Haven't reported to service. Brake and transmission locked up ONCE. All released ok after turning engine off and restarting. Also not reported to service."

HEINZ S., NY (2015 Subaru Outback)

"The ability to slowly accelerate from a stop is outstanding. The turning radius is very good. However, the steering seems too tight in the center for me, i.e. a little movement of the steering wheel throws me too much off course. Chrysler Corp's variable ratio steering circa 2001 was much better in this respect."

Anonymous, IL (2015 Subaru Outback)

"This car with the 3.6 engine can really go when called upon. I sold BMWs in the 1970's and have driven their current models as well. I would say that our Outback is just as tight in its handling. The Eye Sight system enhances the safety when used properly."

JAMES S., IL (2015 Subaru Outback)

"Sloppy handling, especially around corners/turns. The sedan version handles much better."

Anonymous, MD (2015 Subaru Outback)

"The cruise control does not slow down when going down hill and the Suris radio has trouble connecting"

THOMAS B., CT (2015 Subaru Outback)

MURRAY S., ND (2015 Subaru Outback)

"I like the overall feel and look of the vehicle. I like sitting higher than a sedan which helps allow for a better high visual horizon, and it is more comfortable when getting in and out of the car. I am disappointed with the CVT. The power is not responsive enough for QUICK acceleration such as getting on a freeway with a short on-ramp. Even when accelerating from a stop, or getting up enough speed to make a safe lane change the power feels lacking. I drove professionally for 26 years, an"

STUART-BARBARA G., NC (2015 Subaru Outback)

"GPS is off by at least 1/2 mile and cannot be changed while moving. Back up camera and alarms miss largest UPS trucks and even people within in feet of the car. Body has tons of dents from parking etc. This is contrary to the TV advertising where the kids toys hit the car again and again.

"Quick acceleration and good turn control. But the best part about this car is the Eye-sight controls. When I am on the road for 8 hours it hardly seems like it at all. Because I don't have to keep moving my foot from accelerator to break, it saves so much physical energy. I was astounded. This is the ver best part of this car. I wasn't even aware of what it did till after I purchased the car. Now I will never own a car without it."

DANA M., OK (2015 Subaru Outback)

"I was truly surprised at the quick acceleration and responsiveness of the 4 clinder engine due to the car's size. It is the first car I owned that has a tight turning radius. Response is quick and car holds the road. No sway around corners or curves."

KARIN G., OH (2015 Subaru Outback)

"This is my fifth Subaru and first one with a 6 cyl. engine. When I consider replacing the 2015 Outback I will opt for a 6 cyl. again. Smooth steady acceleration and when you need it on the freeway power to move ahead."

R O., CA (2015 Subaru Outback)

"My husband would have purchased the higher horsepower auto but I feel what we have works very well. Being older, we love the "Eyesight" package. We feel it makes both of us better drivers because you need to signal before moving and it tells you when you are over/out of the lane."

"I have the 3.6 liter engine so the acceleration is strong. However, the handling is not as good as I like. Perhaps it's simply that the car has a high centre of gravity, but the Golf is far superior in its handling.

Lewis P., ME (2015 Subaru Outback)

"After using a rental 2018 Toyota Rav4 on vacation, I can say that the Subaru Eyesight system and the adaptive cruise control is even more fantastic than I thought previously. The Subaru allows me to set the interval from the car ahead and easily adjust the set speed in 5 mph increments. Plus, when traffic slows, the Subaru begins slowing down early enough that you are confident that the system is responding to the situation. A very real advantage, too, is that if traffic comes to a stop, the Subaru cruise control will bring the car to a complete stop. The Toyota system did not do this. Also, the Subaru lane departure warning works well. The Toyota system sometimes was unable to detect the lane markers. I just feel safer with the Subaru system."

Brian B., GA (2015 Subaru Outback)

"The seats are large, plush and quite comfortable. Wind and road noise at highway speed's is somewhat higher than I expected, but very acceptable. When driving into Crosswinds, the weatherstripping on both front doors chatters at times. After the first 10,000 miles, we noticed that the ride quality has deteriorated somewhat, but still quite decent."

Dave I., OH (2015 Subaru Outback)

"This car is very comfortable in the front seat. I have never ridden in the back for any length of time, but I'd imagine that it is comfortable enough back there too. The ride is generally compliant and the AWD really makes the car feel planted to the road. The noise levels are good on most pavements. This is a comfortable car overall."

"I have discovered the driver's. seat is almost impossible to adjust for comfort. I'm short legged but have a long reach. I'm finding it very difficult to adjust the seat for safe driving AND comfort. My left hip and leg go numb nad the lower lumbar area be comes very painful. I have added a memory foam cushion as a stop gap measure until I can find something more permanent."

Anonymous, NJ (2015 Subaru Outback)

"The comfort of the front seats has been very disappointing. It seems almost impossible to adjust the driver's seat for 5’ tall woman so she has visibility needed and without pressure on the hips and back causing numbing in the legs. Further adjustments to the seat and seat back cause pain in the back and legs. A driver who is 6’1‿ has no difficulty viewing the road or mirrors, but has woeful comfort from the seat. His legs and feet go numb in less than an hour. Additional adjustments give slightly improved comfort but it’s sadly short lived. Trips lasting longer than 90 minutes are out of the question."
