If you're interested in finding out how the Subaru Outback and the Ford Edge stack up to one another, you have the right idea.

The Subaru of Mobile team has drawn up this 2019 Outback vs. 2019 Edge comparison to help you narrow down your options even further. Take a look to find out which one fits in with your individual lifestyle the best.

Subaru Outback vs Ford Edge: Reassuring Safety

Both of these SUVs are equipped with the kind of safety features you'd like to have with you while you're out on the open road. For example, one particular area where they both excel is in providing you with ample support in the event you find yourself driving up and down a lot of hills.

The feature in the new Outback that has the potential to come in handy in this situation would be the Hill Descent Control that comes standard. When you're driving down a steep hill, it helps out by providing you with a smooth ride in the way that it manages the braking for you.

The Edge comes standard with the Hill Start Assist. This feature comes into play when you're ready to get going again after you've been parked on the side of a hill. It continues to apply pressure to the brakes while you move your foot over to the gas pedal in order to enable the vehicle to accelerate in the right direction.

Another feature within the category of safety that you'll find in the Subaru Outback and not in the Ford Edge is the Brake Override System. It comes standard to prevent unintentional vehicle acceleration in the event that the brake and gas pedals are being pushed down at the same time.  

Convenient Touches

While the 2019 Subaru Outback and the 2019 Ford Edge share such convenient elements as auto-dimming rearview mirrors that keep you from being distracted by reflecting headlights when vehicles show up behind you, that's where the similarities within this category seem to an end. For instance, the rearview mirror in the Outback is available with HomeLink® that lets you access things like your home's garage door and security fence from the road. The Edge does not have this function.

The Outback continues to pull ahead with features like the available cargo-area cover. It's retractable and removable and allows you to keep valuable items covered up. The Ford Edge is not available with a cargo-area cover.

Subaru Outback vs Ford Edge: Making Your Decision

With its aspects of safety and convenience, the Outback shows itself to be the superior choice over the Edge.
