How does the 2017 Subaru Outback Stack up to the 2017 Subaru Forester?

Here at Cityside Subaru, we field a lot of questions. One of the most common questions, though? What are the differences between the Subaru Outback and the Subaru Forester? Well, we're here to tell you! While both vehicles make for a great choice, there are a few key differences to consider when choosing between the two. With this in mind, our team is here to explain just a few. To learn more, we encourage you to read on below...

Which vehicle drives better?

While both vehicles offer a remarkably comfortable driving experience, we must admit that the Subaru Outback boasts a smoother ride than this year's new Forester. Riding on a longer wheelbase than the 2017 Subaru Forester, this year's new Outback is able to take on bumps in the road much easier. Regardless though, you'll find that both vehicles offer better ride quality than their off-brand competition.

Is the Subaru Forester bigger than the Subaru Outback?

Whether you're shopping for a new vehicle for your growing brood, or one that can accompany you on a long weekend in the backcountry, you're going to want to consider how much space your next vehicle has to offer. When it comes to comparing these two lineup mates, you'll find that while their cargo areas are sized similarly, the Subaru Outback offers more vertical cargo space than the 2017 Subaru Forester is able to.

Which vehicle of the two offers more passenger space?

Of course, you're also going to want to consider how much passenger space your next vehicle has to offer. When it really comes down to it, you'll find that the 2017 Subaru Outback offers more overall passenger space than this year's new Subaru Forester. Regardless of total passenger space though, you'll find that both the 2017 Subaru Outback and the Subaru Forester offer the same amount of rear passenger legroom.

Is there a difference in interior features?

Fortunately, no! Whether you opt for the 2017 Subaru Forester or this year's new Outback, you'll have plenty of great interior features to choose from. One of our favorites? The SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia system. Located in the vehicle's center stack, this touchscreen infotainment system makes accessing features such as news, navigation, music, Pandora, STARLINK apps and available SiriusXM Satellite Radio easier than ever before.

As you can see, when it comes to comparing the 2017 Subaru Outback to this year's new Subaru Forester, it really comes down to preference. With that in mind, we encourage you to stop by our Boston area Subaru dealership to check out these two great vehicles for yourself.
