How Does the 2017 Subaru Outback Compare to the 2017 Volvo V60?

Subaru has built a solid reputation as a dependable, long-lasting brand of vehicles, but what happens when you take the popular 2017 Subaru Outback and put it up against a much more expensive vehicle like the 2017 Volvo V60?

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volvo V60: Design

Both of these well-equipped wagons come standard with the technology you'd expect on a new vehicle, like infotainment touchscreeens, and both even come with available Harman Kardon premium sound systems. Still, the 2017 Outback comes out on top in terms of design thanks to its significantly higher interior volume. This means you'll get more space to carry five passengers comfortably, and the maximum cargo volume in the Outback far outdoes what you'll get in the V60. Standard comforts like reclining rear seats, which are not available in the Volvo, and roof rails, which require a trim level upgrade in the V60, await drivers of the 2017 Subaru Outback.

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volvo V60: Performance

When it comes to performance, it's about more than horsepower. The Volvo offers more horsepower standard, but you can enjoy similar horsepower with the available engine offered by the Outback. A quick glance at the numbers and it may seem like the V60 offers better fuel efficiency than the 2017 Outback, but look deeper and you'll see that the Outback offers its efficiency while equipped with all-wheel drive. When the Volvo is equipped with all-wheel drive, it's miles-per-gallon drop. What really sets the Subaru Outback apart from the V60, though, is the horizontally opposed BOXER engine. This engine comes standard on every Outback and lowers the vehicle's center of gravity drastically to give you a safer, more controlled, quieter drive. The V60 simply doesn't offer this level of performance engineering.

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volvo V60: Safety

Subaru knows that, above all else, safety is the most important. Which is why, while you'll find many of the same standard and available safety features in the 2017 Outback as you will in the more expensive V60, Subaru engineered the Outback to be safer from the start. Part of this confident safety comes from the low center of gravity previously mentioned, but it's also thanks to the standard symmetrical all-wheel drive system that comes on every Subaru Outback. You can upgrade and pay more for all-wheel drive on the V60, but it's still an inferior system to Subaru. There's so much more we could say about the safety of the 2017 Outback, but we simply can't fit it all here.
