Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than in the Lexus UX 250h, due to its greater 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 Lexus UX 250h.

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus UX 250h, 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 Lexus UX 250h is somewhat more expensive 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. In this case, the Lexus UX 250h will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Subaru Outback.
