Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Envision offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Subaru Outback, with comparable head- and legroom. The Subaru Outback will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick Envision, 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). The Buick Envision is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Outback.

Dimensions
The Buick Envision is a little wider than the Subaru Outback, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Buick Envision is slightly shorter than the Subaru Outback, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Buick Envision has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Outback, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Envision has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Outback.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Envision does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Outback.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Envision and the Subaru Outback. The Buick Envision has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Outback.
