How Does the Outback compare against the competition?

There is a wide variety of makes and models for Burlingame drivers to choose from when shopping for a new vehicle. With so many options to choose from that are all claiming to be the best it can be hard to decide which one is just right for you without doing a little research. Thankfully Putnam Subaru has done the work for you and compares other models to the Subaru Outback.

Two popular SUV options that many San Francisco drivers also consider are the Ford Edge and Mazda CX-5. But when it comes to price, value, safety, fuel efficiency, power, interior space, and features the Subaru Outback comes out on top. The Ford Edge has a starting price of almost $3,500 more and all-wheel-drive will cost extra. The 2019 Ford Edge also isn't as full efficient with only 29 highway mpg and only has 73.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. While the 2020 Subaru Outback has 75.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and gets up to 33 highway mpg.

The Mazda CX-5 has a similar starting price to the Outback but isn't nearly as well equipped for driving around town or a weekend adventure. The Outback comes standard with raised roof rails with integrated crossbars that fold out and lock into place to easily mount roof accessories. Roof rails are an additional feature of the CX-5 and you will need to purchase crossbars separately. The CX-5 can only tow up to 2,000 lbs. while the 2020 Outback is capable of towing up to 3,500 lbs. The Mazda CX-5 is also significantly smaller with only 59.6 cubic feet of maximum cargo space and 103.6 cubic feet of passenger space.
