2017 Subaru Outback vs. 2017 Toyota Prius v Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than the Toyota Prius v. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Subaru Outback and the Toyota Prius v in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Prius v, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Subaru Outback is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius v. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Outback and the Toyota Prius v have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Outback is much wider than the Toyota Prius v, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Subaru Outback, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Prius v.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Subaru Outback does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius v.

Handling
The Subaru Outback has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius v, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
