2017 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2017 Subaru Outback Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Transit Connect, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Transit Connect will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Outback. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Subaru Outback.

Performance
The Ford Transit Connect has less horsepower than the Subaru Outback, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Ford Transit Connect offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru Outback, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Ford Transit Connect comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Outback.
