Excellent car, wish it came with more interior color choices. I waited to buy until the interest rates went down, very good deal. I highly recommend!

2024 Subaru Outback review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2024 Subaru Outback? 

The 2024 Subaru Outback is a compelling choice for car shoppers who want SUV levels of space in something that’s a bit more carlike and manageable to drive. With seating for five and an exceptionally roomy cargo area, the Outback is a highly versatile mid-size wagon. The base powertrain is a 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission; a 260-hp turbo four is optional, and it delivers notably stronger passing power. All-wheel drive is standard with either engine.

What’s New on the 2024 Subaru Outback? 

Subaru’s Eyesight driver-assist technology is now standard on all trims, and it also now includes automatic emergency steering at speeds below 50 mph on trims that feature blind spot warning with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert. Wilderness trims get a revised front end with standard LED foglights, while Wilderness, Onyx Edition and Onyx Edition XT trims now come standard with a heated steering wheel. Onyx Edition trims also get a power moonroof and reverse automatic braking.

What Features in the 2024 Subaru Outback Are Most Important? 

Standard features include:

  • Dual 7-inch touchscreens
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Automatic climate control
  • Keyless entry
  • Satellite radio
  • Two USB ports
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive cruise control 
  • Rear-seat reminder
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Available features include:

  • 11.6-inch touchscreen
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Remote start
  • Blind spot warning
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated rear seats
  • 12-speaker Harman Kardon stereo
  • Hands-free power liftgate

Should I Buy the 2024 Subaru Outback? 

Roomy and relaxing to drive, the Subaru Outback is an excellent alternative to both a mid-size sedan and a compact SUV. Standard AWD is a key selling point, though the Outback should also be credited for its strong roster of safety and tech features. The base engine is good on gas, but it can drone under hard acceleration. The turbo four-cylinder in upper trims delivers better performance, and it nudges maximum towing capacity to 3,500 pounds. With its extra ground clearance, underbody skid plates and off-road tires, the Wilderness trim gives the Outback even more outdoorsy appeal and all-terrain capability.
