Research 2017 Subaru Outback

2017 Subaru Outback

Model Strengths:

 On the one hand, the Subaru Outback is all about its passengers. Each detail has been chosen to keep family and friends in stylish comfort. For winter weather, amenities include heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and a modern dual-control programmable thermostat. Exterior details, such as heated mirrors and a wiper de-icer, also help beat the cold. On the other hand, the Subaru Outback is all about utility. Integrated, retractable cross bars lets you load 150 pounds of gear on the roof. The large hold can handle 35 cu.ft. of cargo, and the split-folding seats double that. Ground clearance is remarkably high for the class, and an underguard is standard on some higher editions. Of course, symmetrical All Wheel Drive assures every Outback driver that snowy roads are under control. Traction systems include hill descent control to regulate downhill travel without stressing the brakes or threatening your safety. The 2017 Outback has earned top safety awards from crash testing agencies.

Model Changes:

Shoppers are sure to appreciate the new technologies on the 2017 Subaru Outback. On the dash, the SUV wears one of two user-friendly touchscreens. These new interfaces are easier to understand and offer a quicker response to your commands. To keep everyone safer, the blind spot system is standard on the Limited and higher editions. This includes a rear cross-traffic alert for parking safety. The EyeSight system has rear automatic braking that reacts if a collision is detected. Likewise, a lane correction system is paired with the lane departure alert to provide automated assistance when needed. The forward collision warning system has its own auto-brake that responds in a crisis. Pedestrian detection is also part of this package. New this year, reverse automatic braking detects obstacles during parking. Automated high beams can lower their light to match conditions, and adaptive foglights can move to match the turn of the wheels.

Model Value:

Having earned Best Residual Value Award from the research experts at ALG, the Outback is clearly ready to earn its spot in your driveway. Kelley Blue Book, another leading research analyst, named the Outback as one of the Best Family Cars. Notably, the base edition comes loaded with items that cost you more on other vehicles. This includes extensive dash technologies and the clever crossbars that fold up when you don't need them. These unique self-storing attachments can't get lost and don't need special tools. Few crossovers can claim the thorough blanket of crash avoidance features that are found on the Outback today. Furthermore, the SUV's five-star federal safety rating is also a strong indicator that this vehicle is ready to earn its keep. With a maximum 33 mpg/highway fuel economy, the Outback definitely won't be a drain on the family budget. 

Model Overview:

Every new Outback has either 17-inch or 18-inch alloys. This emphasis on lightweight wheels reduces unsprung weight and helps ensure the greatest efficiency for either engine type. The four-cylinder Boxer engine, which utilizes unique horizontally opposed placement, is made of lighter weight aluminum alloy. With the continuously variable transmission, this engine yields 175 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque. Since it's got all-wheel capability, it can put four wheels into play whenever needed. Generous fuel economy wraps up this package: 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway. A comparison of EPA ratings for midsize CUVs shows that this is the most efficient in the class. For those who need to push the limits, Subaru offers its 3.6R trims. The 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer kicks out 256 horsepower and 247 lb.-ft. of torque. 

Model Key Trim Features:

The 2017 Subaru Outback offers six trim levels that are divided by your engine choice. The 2.5i also comes in Premium, Limited, and Touring editions. The 3.6R is offered only in the Limited or Touring trims. The base edition takes care of the driver with a tilt-telescopic steering wheel that has duplicate audio controls and paddle shifters. Dash tech includes a Starlink 6.2-inch touchscreen with USB port and rearview camera. Earning the name, Premium editions go beyond the essentials to include heated front seats and a power driver's seat. It also adds the seven-inch touchscreen, an additional USB port, hands-free text messaging and satellite radio. Limited editions are clad in leather. A power passenger seat, heated rear seats, and rear air vents add more comforts for passengers. The driver enjoys seat-memory functions. Dash tech expands with the inclusion of a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. The exterior picks up a power liftgate and a front bumper underguard. Limited drivers also get the benefit of a blind spot monitor. In addition to the EyeSight package, the Limited and Premium can be upgraded with steering-response fog lights. Drivers looking for luxury will appreciate the new Outback Touring trim. Special interior and exterior trim set this crossover apart. These emphasize beauty over utility. The new low-profile roof rails, unique wheels, and dark exterior trim set the Touring trim apart. Leather-like soft-touches make the cabin even more welcome. Upgraded leather upholstery adds a comforting touch to the seats. Model Positive Review / Accolade: Subaru Outback, Best Wagon for Families, U.S. News and World Report
