Why Choose The 2024 Subaru Outback
The 2024 Subaru Outback is technically classified as a station wagon, but it resembles the modern crossover. It stands apart from other makes and models thanks to its versatility on pavement and trails, along with its comfortable interior and roomy cargo space.
The 2024 Subaru Outback engine in the base trim is a naturally 2.5-liter flat-four-cylinder that delivers 182 horsepower. Subaru also offers a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four with 260 horsepower, but it’s only available in higher trim levels. Both boxer engines are paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission and Subaru’s legendary symmetrical all-wheel-drive system.
If trails are a priority, the Outback has 8.7 inches of ground clearance. It also has Hill Descent Control and X-Mode for better traction and control on dirt. The Wilderness trim is the top option for off-roading, as this model has 9.5 inches of ground clearance, all-terrain tires, and more X-Mode driving modes for Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud.
The 2024 Subaru Outback interior begins with cloth upholstery with manually-adjustable front seats. The tech features include a 4.2-inch driver gauge display and two 7.0-inch touch screens with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a USB port, and a four-speaker audio system. Drivers have to choose the Limited trim to get an upgraded Harman Kardon 12-speaker audio system and leather seats.
The Outback has a spacious cargo area with 32.6 cubic feet of space with the rear seats upright. Lowering them ups the cargo area to 75.6 cubic feet.
Why Choose The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek
The Crosstrek is a subcompact SUV crossover that received a redesign for the 2024 model year. This Subaru model also has two engine options. The first - which is standard in the base and Premium trims - is a 2.0-liter flat-four with 152 horsepower. The second engine - in the higher trim levels - is a 2.5-liter flat-four with 182 horsepower. All models have all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek interior has the same features as the entry-level Outback. The trims are similarly outfitted, as the Limited trim also has the premium audio system and leather upholstery. The Crosstrek is smaller than the Outback with 19.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. With the rear seats lowered, the cargo space increases to 54.7 cubic feet.
