Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Outback than in the Toyota Venza. The Subaru Outback will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Venza.

Convenience
The Subaru Outback requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Venza, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Subaru Outback will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Venza. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
The Subaru Outback is about the same width as the Toyota Venza. 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 Venza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Subaru Outback transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
The Subaru Outback has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Venza.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Subaru Outback and the Toyota Venza. With the Subaru Outback, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
