Still New to Me

by AuroraBlueSky from Panama City Beach, FL | May 27, 2020

This vehicle is awesome. Lots of bells and whistles like front and rear heated seats, moon roof, and leather interior. It's great for my on-the-go lifestyle (love camping, hiking, kayaking and traveling) but is still classy enough to cart around clients and co-works if the need arises. The ride feels great. Although this car is new to me it is heading into 4 years old. Still a very nice and comfortable ride. No maintenance issues and I do regular upkeep. The only thing to bare in mind is that it you plan to put all-terrain tires on this car the road noise will increase.

Most reliable car I have ever owned!!

I love the peppy six cylinder! Also, this car has a discreet towing package. I will throw in the Subaru original hitch. The best part of driving this besides the new tires...8 month old tires...is the adaptive cruise control.

Best car in the world

It's stylish, comfortable, and overall, reliable to the fullest extent!!! We love our Subaru! It fits our growing family perfectly and has room for more!!!

2017 Subaru Outback Overview

The Subaru Outback straddles the divide between traditional wagons and crossover SUVs, and comes standard with all-wheel drive. It seats five, and can be powered by either a four- or six-cylinder engine.

Six trims are available: the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 3.6R Limited, and 3.6R Touring.

New for 2017
For 2017, Subaru has added a new top trim level, the Touring trim. It comes with unique dark gray styling cues on the grille and wheels, as well as a silver finish on the lower-profile roof rails. Touring models are available with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine.

Additionally, Outback models are now available with reverse automatic braking that senses a collision and stops the car. A new high beam assist feature is added to the camera-based EyeSight system, and it automatically switches the headlights from the high to low beams as oncoming traffic is detected.
