We're not comparing apples to oranges, it's more like comparing the different varieties of "All Wheel Drive apples." Foresters and Outbacks have many differences in terms of ride quality, dimensions, price, ride height, style, transmission options, engine size, and fuel economy, but they share an unbeatable safety record, 8.7" ground clearance, and magnificent winter handling.

"What is the difference between the Forester and the Outback?" is the most common question we hear at Dean Team Subaru. Hopefully the video below can answer some of those questions for you.

Final Answer: Test Drive Both!

Schedule your test drive today and experience the Outback and Forester for yourself!

Either vehicle makes a good choice as they handle snow, sleet and ice with equal ability, thanks to Subaru Symmetrical All Wheel Drive. Both vehicles are Top Safety Pick Pluses according to IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety)..

Safe travels and many happy miles with your Subaru!
