Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Subaru Outback hangs on to its remarkably rugged stance as it grows more refined than ever.

Pros
Capable as ever
Big 11.6-inch touchscreen
A roomy interior
Excellent safety record
Rides very well

Cons
Careful styling
Moderate acceleration from base engine
Needs more small-item storage

By:

The 2021 Subaru Outback comes with a 3 yr./ 36000 mi. basic warranty, a 3 yr./ 36000 mi. roadside warranty, and a 5 yr./ 60000 mi. powertrain warranty.Adaptive LED headlights now standard on all trims.Seat-belt reminder standard for all passengers.Reminder to check rear seat added as standard safety feature.

Pros
Spacious cabin and smooth, comfortable ride
Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Loading the roof or cargo area is easier than in most SUVs
Above-average off-road ability

Cons
Big touchscreen is slow to respond and buries many controls in complicated menus
Slow acceleration from standard engine
Native voice recognition system isn't very accurate

By:

The Outback was redesigned from the ground up for the 2020 model year, so for 2021 Subaru has made only three minor changes: Adaptive headlamps, a rear-seat reminder system, and a passenger's seatbelt warning light and chime are now standard across the lineup.

Pros
Ground clearance helps off-road or in snow,
spacious cabin,
tons of available tech.

Cons
Unhurried acceleration,
ho-hum driving dynamics,
indistinct exterior styling.

TRD Pro has new Fox shock absorbers, new skid plate and roof rack, and standard sunroof and JBL sound system.New Limited Nightshade Edition with black-out color scheme.The 2019 Toyota 4Runner is a midsize SUV whose hardware, ground clearance and cargo storage make it perfect for off-road adventures. Like many Toyotas, the 4Runner comes in just a handful of trim levels. These trim levels have few, if any, options, making the selection process a little easier.

PROS
Off-road capability few other competitors can match
Variety of configurations to suit many buyers and price points
Versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide-out floor

CONS
Choppy ride quality compared with more modern crossovers
Lacks the latest driver safety aids
V6 engine is not particularly fuel-efficient
Tall step-in height makes for ungraceful entry and exit

By: 
edmunds.com
