Looking for your next Subaru vehicle, but aren't sure which one to choose? Let us present two of our favorites: the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek and 2019 Subaru Outback. With such great features in both vehicles, we thought we'd give you a quick comparison so that you can decide for yourself which one is best for you.

For our drivers in the Wakefield, Reading, and Danvers areas, our team at Ira Subaru has put together this vehicle comparison of the Subaru Crosstrek vs. Subaru Outback. You'll find out the main similarities and differences between the two, specifically in terms of interior features, engine options, and safety features!

Mid-Size Crossover SUV vs Compact Crossover SUV

The Subaru Crosstrek and Outback might look similar, but they're actually in two separate classes. The Outback is a mid-size crossover SUV, while the Crosstrek is a compact crossover SUV. The Subaru Outback has more of a wagon look, and as we'll see, is overall bigger than the Crosstrek.

If we're talking measurements, like we said, the Outback is all-around the bigger SUV. It's 14 inches longer, two-and-a-half inches taller, and two inches wider than the Subaru Crosstrek. Thinking about those measurements will give you a better idea of how these two compare in terms of outer size and look.

Comparing Passenger & Cargo Space

In terms of interior room, you'll get great space in both the Subaru Crosstrek and Outback. Your back-seat riders will appreciate the 38.1 inches of legroom in the Outback and 36.5 inches of equivalent room in the Crosstrek, making it easy to stretch out.

When it comes to having room to pile in all the camping gear or sporting equipment, look no further than either of these models. The Outback offers 35.5 cubic feet behind the second row, while the Crosstrek comes in second with 20.8 cubic feet. With either pick, you'll find an impressive amount of space-and even more with the second row folded down!

Similar Entertainment & Safety Technology

The 2019 Crosstrek and Outback are very similar in terms of entertainment and safety technology. With a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen display along with a USB port, Bluetooth® capability, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™, these innovative technologies will surely keep your longest drives entertaining.

In terms of safety features, you'll get a rear-view camera standard in both models. You'll then have the option to add the Subaru EyeSight® system, which includes safety features such as:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning

With features like these, you'll feel like you have an extra set of eyes on the road, giving you an extra sense of security for you and your passengers.

Test Drive the Subaru Crosstrek and Outback
