Subaru Forester vs Outback

Subaru Showdown! Forester vs. Outback
Test drive both and make your choice.

When you choose a Subaru vehicle, you really can't go wrong. Almost all of the models come with Subaru's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the reliability that Subaru is known for. But choosing which Subaru model is best for you can be a challenge. The Subaru Outback, while iconic and always popular, may not be the best model for your needs. One of the best alternatives is the always-reliable Subaru Forester.

Both of these models have similar offerings, from the powertrain to the unique versatility that comes in all Subaru models, but the differences are in the finer details, and they can have a huge impact on your enjoyment of the vehicle. Some of the key difference are seen below.

  • Subaru Forester offers a tighter turning radius than the Outback does, making those tight maneuvers all the more easy.
  • On the interior, the Subaru Forester offers more headroom and legroom than the Outback does.
  • The Subaru Forester comes at a lower base price than the Outback, cementing it as a superior value for many drivers.

In just about every other aspect, these vehicles are extremely alike. It's an irrefutable truth that you really can't go wrong with either. But if you're looking for a more spacious and comfortable ride, the Subaru Forester is the right vehicle for you. To experience the Forester firsthand, come and see us at Dan Perkins Subaru and take one for a test drive. Soon, you'll be taking on Southern New England roads in the best SUV for the job.
