From the Insurance Institiute of Highway Safety, not only is the Outback a Top Safety Pick+, but it also received the highest possible rating for front crash prevention as well as the new side impact test.

Superior Safety Standards

Subaru vehicles are renowned for their impeccable safety standards. The governing body which tests all vehicles currently on the market for strict safety measures in numerous categories is the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). The main areas they test are structural design that determines crash worthiness and safety technology & equipment. The 2023 Subaru Outback and 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe were selected as 2023 Top Safety Pick+ winners this year, but when you take a closer look at the scores, you'll see that the Hyundai Santa Fe misses the mark in two key areas: headlight design and LATCH child restraint ease of use.

The Hyundai Santa Fe reserves the safest headlights for higher trim levels, and they scored an "Acceptable" for LATCH System ease of use. The Subaru Outback scored top marks, "Good" and "Exceptional", in every category, so you never have to wonder if your safety equipment is good enough.

Cargo Space

The Subaru Outback has a station wagon body style rather than the more traditional SUV body of the Hyundai Santa Fe. The versatile and beloved shape creates plentiful space and low load heights for easy loading and unloading. You'll have more available cargo space in the Subaru Outback with 75.6 cubic feet of flat cargo floor compared to 72.1 cubic feet in the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Updated Technology

Tech-savvy drivers who want the newest and best technology in their vehicles should look no further than the Subaru Outback, with the new 11.6-inch touchscreen as the standard infotainment system in every model.
