Here at Johnson Subaru of Cary, our team members understand that shopping for a new SUV can get confusing. With so many vehicles to choose from, how do you know which would be the best option for satisfying your unique daily driving needs? Fortunately, our team is here to help. To learn more about both the 2017 Subaru Forester and the 2017 Subaru Outback, along with the differences between the two, we invite you to read on below...

  

Engine Choice and Fuel Efficiency

When it comes to what's under the hood, both the Outback and the Forester are able to churn out a reasonable amount of horsepower. While the Outback is able to offer a slightly better driving range due to its larger fuel tank, the Forester sports better fuel economy when navigating city traffic.

  

Vehicle Dimensions

While the Subaru Outback is two inches wider, and eight inches longer, the Subaru Forester is two inches taller. When it comes to ground clearance, both vehicles sit a full 8.7-inches off of the ground.

  

Interior Space

If you're in the market for the vehicle that offers the most amount of passenger space, we recommend choosing the Subaru Outback. Boasting a full 143.6 cubic-feet of passenger space, the Subaru Outback is the roomiest of these two vehicles. While the Forester offers slightly less interior space at 108.3 cubic-feet, it still manages to comfortably seat five passengers and may benefit city drivers with its smaller overall footprint.

  

Cargo Space

When it comes to cargo space, both vehicles offer a similar amount of space. Whether you choose to keep the rear seats up, or need to fold them down, you'll enjoy a wealth of cargo space, regardless of which vehicle you choose. In many instances, the Forester offers comparable storage space for a lower price.

 

Safety Features

While the Subaru Forester and this year's Outback do share many similar safety features, the Subaru Outback does come equipped with an additional airbag. Regardless, both vehicles have been recognized by the IIHS as a Top Safety Pick+.
