Drivers in Ithaca can learn all about the Outback with our comprehensive 2021 Subaru Outback review from Maguire Subaru.

Outback Performance

The Outback comes with a 2.5L 4-cyliner SUBARU BOXER® engine that boasts plenty of power for daily driving situations with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. If you're planning on hitting the trails or want more performance, there's also an available turbocharged 2.4L 4-cylinder that gets up to 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.

One of the best features of the Outback is its capability. All Outback models come with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better grip in inclement weather and rugged environments. It features 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-MODE® for extra stability. With the off-road-ready Onyx Edition XT trim, you will have dual-mode X-Mode for more capability on the trails. When properly equipped, the Outback can tow up to 2,700 pounds with the standard engine and 3,500 pounds with the upgraded engine.

Outback Interior

The Outback's cabin is spacious and airy, offering seating for up to five people in supportive, heavily bolstered seats. Adult passengers will find ample legroom and headroom, even in the rear seat. Cloth upholstery is standard, but leather upholstery, heated seats, and other creature comforts are available.

With the seats upright, the Outback has 32.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row. With the seats folded flat, the maximum cargo space is 75.7 cubic feet. There's also an underfloor storage compartment for delicate or valuable cargo to be stored out of sight. An available hands-free liftgate offers convenient and easy loading.

Outback Technology and Safety Features

The base Outback model includes a STARLINK® infotainment system with two 7-inch touch screens, though you will find an 11.6-inch touch screen on mid- to upper-level models. The system is highly intuitive and features a combination of physical knobs and buttons for audio and climate control, as well as touch-screen inputs for entertainment and connectivity features. You can upgrade the system with features like navigation, HD Radio™, wireless device charging, and a choice of a Harman Kardon® or Rockford Fosgate® stereo system.

For safety, the Outback includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, a feature that adjusts your cruise speed to stay with the flow of traffic, and Pre-Collision Braking, a feature that mitigates frontal crashes by pre-charging and applying the brakes. Several other features are standard, but you have plenty of upgrades as well. One of the highlights is the DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System, which alerts you if you're driving fatigued and need to rest.
