2019 Subaru Outback Performance

While the Toyota RAV4 offers only one engine, the 2019 Subaru Outback lets you choose between two powerful BOXER® engines. The entry-level engine generates an impressive 175 horsepower while still getting up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway--more than even the front-wheel drive Toyota RAV4 gets.

2019 Subaru Outback Safety

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Toyota RAV4: Safety Information

While both of these vehicles are impressively safe, only the 2019 Subaru Outback comes with a full-time Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System. This provides exceptional traction, making it much safer to drive on slick, wet, snowy, or icy roads. While a part-time AWD system is available on the Toyota RAV4, it's a more expensive upgrade.


2019 Subaru Outback Off-Road Performance

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Toyota RAV4: Off-Road Capability

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive does more than just make the Subaru Outback remarkably safe: it also enables it to handle all kinds of off-road adventures. Every 2019 Subaru Outback comes standard with Hill Descent Control and X-MODE®, which work hard to increase AWD engagement and provide even better traction and control on low-friction surfaces. These features are perfect for off-roading--and you won't find them in the Toyota RAV4.
