Subaru Outback vs. Toyota Highlander

  • The Outback has a lower starting MSRP, starting at $25,645, compared to the Highlander's starting MSRP of $30,630. You'll save almost $5,000 with the Outback. Even at the highest trim levels, the Outback 3.6R Touring is still over $3,000 less than the Highlander's comparable trim.
  • You'll save more on gas in the Outback, too, because it gets 25/32 city/highway mpg. That's better than the 20/24 city/highway mpg rating for the Highlander.
  • Standard all-wheel drive is nice, right? The Outback gives it to you, with its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. You'll have to pay over $3,500 extra to get all-wheel drive in the Highlander.
  • The Outback can tow up to 2,700 pounds standard, which is 1,200 pounds more than the Highlander's standard towing capacity.
  • Remote trunk release comes standard in the Outback, unlike the Highlander, which makes you pay over $4,000 extra.
  • The Outback offers auto-leveling headlights, so you have a safer and more visible drive at night. The Highlander? You won't see them.

  • The starting MSRP of the Outback is $25,645, which is over $5,000 less expensive than the Pilot's $30,745 starting price. Move up to the highest trim levels, and the Outback 3.6R Touring is over $9,000 more affordable than the Pilot's comparable trim.
  • Go further in the Outback, thanks to its 25/32 city/highway mpg rating. The Pilot? You'll have to settle for 19/27 city/highway mpg.
  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on the Outback. The Pilot will make you pay almost $2,000 extra for an all-wheel drive system.
  • The Outback offers remote trunk release standard. You'll have to pay almost $6,000 extra to get it in the Pilot.
