The Subaru Outback is a versatile crossover that has lots of standard safety features and a durable drivetrain. So, how much cargo can it carry?

To show families and drives in Ithaca how much it can hold, Maguire Subaru looks at the Subaru Outback cargo space.

Subaru Outback Interior Dimensions

The 2019 Subaru Outback has a roomy interior with space for the whole family and all your cargo. There are two rows of seats and a large trunk with an underfloor storage compartment. If you've got more to load, you can get more than double the space by using the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats.




Cargo Room Behind Row

73.3 cubic feet

35.5 cubic feet


40.8 inches

38.9 inches

38.1 inches

Shoulder Room

Overall, there's 108.1 cubic feet of passenger room throughout the cabin, so it's also easy to store backpacks and grocery bags in the back seat.

There are a lot of options for how you can load the trunk too. For starters, a Power Rear Gate allows you to unlock and open the trunk by just pushing a button on your key fob. To keep your trunk organized, you can add accessories like a cargo net or a cargo separator. The available cargo cover especially comes in handy during holidays and birthdays when you need to keep a trunk full of presents hidden.

Subaru Outback Towing

The Subaru Outback is also able to haul lots of extra cargo. It has a towing capacity of 2,700 pounds. That can help you bring a couple jet skis to the lake or a utility trailer on your next vacation.

To give you that kind of towing capability, the Outback offers two versatile engines. The first one is a 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. The larger option is a 3.6L SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque.

The trailer hitch has a sturdy tongue weight of 200 pounds. It's also compatible with accessories like a Thule® Bike Carrier. When not in use, you can cover it up with a stylish black hitch cap that blends in with the bumper.

Subaru Outback Roof Rails

With roof rails, the Subaru Outback makes it easy to take your Christmas tree home without getting needles all over the interior. These roof rails feature retractable crossbars and can carry up to 150 pounds. They're also designed to work with lots of different attachments.

A Thule® Cargo Carrier gives you a streamlined shell that's lockable and features 13 cubic feet of extra space. Thule® offers lots of different carriers that are specifically designed for carrying things like kayaks, paddleboards, bikes, skis, and snowboards.
