Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than in the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Bolt EUV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Outback, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV is a better financial choice over the Subaru Outback, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Bolt EUV is much slimmer than the Subaru Outback, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Outback.

Performance
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Outback.

Powertrain
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV has much lower torque than the Subaru Outback, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Bolt EUV and the Subaru Outback.
