Van Subaru's 2014 Outback Review and Research

The popular Subaru Outback is already receiving top honors for its brand-new 2014 edition, thanks to its phenomenal features and aggressive exterior design. Named Car Guide's top crossover and Motor Trend's SUV of the Year, the Outback is chock-full of capabilities, making it one of the best sport utility vehicles for active drivers and families. Its spacious interior layout, off-roading capabilities, impressive amenities and new/upgraded components keep the wagon from being just another average crossover. An all-wheel-drive configuration also gives it the ability to power through various weather conditions ?" perfect for year-round driving.

Equipped for any adventure, the 2014 Subaru Outback features an 8.7-inch ground clearance, giving it just enough height to tackle uneven terrain. A 3,000-pound towing capacity (available with the six-cylinder engine) provides extra capability and is strong enough to haul small trailers ?" acknowledged in Edmund's 2014 Subaru Outback review. For frequent travelers, the Outback also comes with a roof rack to hold all your luggage and gear, along with 71 cubic feet of cargo space inside the cabin. New upgrades for 2014 include an Eyesight driver assistance system on 2.5i Premium, an Alloy Wheel Package, a rearview camera apart of the Power Moonroof Package, an electroluminescent instrument cluster on 2.5i Premium and optional navigation with the Subaru Aha infotainment system.

A 2.5L boxer four-cylinder engine is the standard powertrain offered with the Outback. Delivering 173 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque, it receives great EPA ratings when matched with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT outfitted with adaptive control.
