Compare Subaru Outback SUV to Similar Models in Valdosta

Subaru Outback vs. Toyota Venza, Honda Passport, and Hyundai Santa Fe: See how the 7th-gen Subaru Outback measure up against the competition in Valdosta, near Adel and Nashville, GA

A midsize SUV with a wagon provenance, the Subaru Outback provides a superlative blend of versatility, capability, comfort, and value. It's spacious and accommodating, with cozy seats and tons of amenities, including a full suite of Subaru EyeSight® driver-assistance technologies as standard equipment. And as one of the only nameplates in its class with standard all-wheel-drive, it delivers surefooted driving dynamics for all conditions. It's one of the most well-rounded and compelling options in its segment, and you can see examples as to why with these head-to-head comparisons against three prominent class competitors: the Toyota Venza, Honda Passport, and Hyundai Santa Fe.


Subaru Outback vs. Toyota Venza

  • With 32.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 75.7 cubic feet of max cargo space, the Subaru Outback offers much more utility than the Venza, which is limited to 28.8 and 55.1 cubic feet, respectively. Plus, Outback comes standard with roof rails and integrated crossbars. The Venza's basic roof rails are only available by climbing the trim ladder.

  • The Subaru Outback offers an available 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that cranks out 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. The Venza's sole 2.5L engine falls behind, producing 219 horsepower and 163 lb-ft.

  • Both models come standard with all-wheel-drive, but the Outback also adds X-MODE advanced traction control and 8.7-inches of ground clearance, make it much more capable on rugged surfaces. The Venza isn't as well suited for off-road travels.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda Passport

  • The Outback's available turbocharged 2.4-liter powerplant and the Passport's 3.5-liter V-6 are evenly matched. The Passport's engine has the advantage in horsepower (260 vs. 280), while the Outback has more torque (277 vs. 262 pound-feet). However, the Outback's EPA-estimated 26 combined mpg is superior to both the FWD (22 mpg) and AWD (21 mpg) Passports.

  • Both models come standard with a suite of driver-assistance technologies. However, Subaru EyeSight® includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane-Centering, which is more advanced and convenient than Honda Sensing's standard adaptive cruise control. Plus, Outback comes standard with steering-adaptive headlights, which the Passport doesn't offer on any trim.

  • Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system and X-MODE advanced traction control, standard on the Outback, provide genuine all-weather and all-surface capability. The Passport can't match the Outback for off-road capability, and AWD is only standard on the top trim level.

Subaru Outback vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

  • The Outback offers excellent visibility, with window designs that minimize blind spots and steering-adaptive headlights that turn with the wheels for better illumination around curves. Conversely, the Santa Fe's design hampers visibility, and it doesn't offer cornering headlights.

  • Outback offers an 11.6-inch display on the second-tier Premium trim, while Santa Fe's optional 10.25-inch screen is only available via an additional package.

  • With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and X-MODE traction control, and Subaru's adventure-ready pedigree, the Outback provides substantially more capability in inclement conditions and when leaving the asphalt.
