Whenever you're looking for a new SUV, cargo room counts. The Subaru Outback is designed with that in mind.

Provide Your Passengers With More Space

The Subaru Outback is prepared to carry everything you need. With its large trunk and 60/40-split folding rear seats, you can load everything from a few bags to big boxes. Its roomy interior is also built for comfort. Both rows of seats offer plenty of space to stretch your legs.

On the other hand, the Toyota RAV4 has a slightly smaller cabin. Some passengers may even feel cramped, especially with the tight back row. Plus, it doesn't offer as much cargo room, either.

PASSENGER ROOM 109 cu. ft. 98.9 cu. ft.
MAX CARGO ROOM 75.7 cu. ft. 69.8 cu. ft.
FRONT/REAR LEGROOM 42.8″ / 39.5″ 41″ / 37.8″

No matter what the forecast calls for, you'll have peace of mind in the Subaru Outback.

A Safe & Stable Ride

It's ready for rough weather and veering off the beaten path. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) comes standard and keeps you in control with features like X-MODE®, Active Torque Vectoring, and Vehicle Dynamics Control.

Modern Safety Tech

While the drivetrain provides you with traction and stability, EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology provides greater awareness while you drive. This system comes standard on every Outback trim and helps prevent accidents with the following smart safety features:

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

The RAV4 offers similar features in its standard Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 system. However, it lacks the same level of standard handling and agility. It comes standard with front-wheel drive, requiring drivers to upgrade if they need extra grip for low-traction driving.

Subaru Outback

On top of offering the latest safety technology, the Subaru Outback also offers features that'll make your drive more fun.

Bigger IS Better for Infotainment

For example, the available 11.6-inch touchscreen makes your crossover feel like a command center. Here, you'll be able to stream music, make hands-free calls, reply to text messages, and find the fastest route with the following features:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM®
  • Navigation System

The Toyota RAV4 also comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ and offers a navigation system. However, your maps are a little tougher to see on its smaller, available 9-inch touchscreen.
