Subaru Outback Compared to the Toyota Highlander

Another top pick, the Toyota Highlander provides some unique features for drivers, but the Outback still outdoes it at many of the most important aspects.

The Outback can tow more than the Highlander, capable of up to 2700 pounds while the Highlander can only tow up to 1500 pounds. This can help you get some of your larger pieces of gear where you want them to be. For all of your regular-sized gear, the Outback offers more space when all of the seats are being used; 35.5 cubic feet of cargo space certainly trumps the 13.8 cubic feet offered from the Highlander.

While many would believe features like this being more expensive, the Outback is actually considerably cheaper than the Highlander. The price of the Outback even includes Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel drive, which you would need to pay more for the Toyota equivalent in the Highlander. You even get better fuel efficiency in the Outback, offering 25 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway compared to the 20 MPG city and 24 MPG highway of the Highlander. Not only will this mean you don't have to stop so often, but you won't be paying as much per trip.
