2019 Subaru Outback: High Performance for the Off-Road Outside of Atlanta, GA

You might have heard that Subaru Outback is a compact SUV of choice for the camping, orienteering, and general outdoor-loving crowd, but, you might have thought to yourself, a lot of other new crossovers can fit the same bill. So, what makes it so special? Let the experts here at Classic Subaru of Atlanta weigh in.

For one, sure 2019 Outback is powerful. Base 2.5i models models incorporate a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine delivering 175 horsepower backed by 174 pound-feet of torque. 3.6R models, the more driven of the bunch, feature a 3.6-liter engine shelling out 256 horsepower at 247 pound-feet. Each engine's flat-four by design, too, versus in-line, meaning more effective when it comes to power delivery. The result's even the ability to tow up to 2,700 pounds -- ATV-, dirt bike-, aluminum boat-, or another small trailerful-hauling territory.

However, the new Outback is just as efficient as it is robust. Paired with a Lineartronic CVT, it can achieve up to 25 mpg in cities like Roswell, GA and 32 mpg down highways to spots like Decatur, according to EPA estimates. Nearly as great with gas, 3.6R models can get up to 20 mpg in cities like Alpharetta and 27 mpg down the highway to those such as East Cobb to boot.

Most of all, Outback is supremely capable. That's thanks to standard Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive with X-MODE. It's a permanent AWD system, versus mode-activated; it's always on versus selective or "part-time;" it's proactive with traction versus "slip-then-grip," like other electronic AWD systems. That means it can deliver power evenly to all wheels at once, prioritizing those with grip. Factor in Active Torque Vectoring for cornering precision, and the results are clear:

  • Excellent balance
  • Optimal wheel slip reduction
  • Quicker handling response
  • Dependable compensation for both oversteer and understeer
  • A reliable grip over rocky or obstacle-strewn landscapes, through rain, across shallow water, and even among snowdrifts

Moreover, with a simpler design that incorporates fewer moving parts than other brands' systems, ours requires less maintenance -- and it's often less expensive.
