2017 Subaru Outback

The first thing most customers want to know about is how their purchase will affect their wallet. Everyone wants a quality vehicle, but they do not want to break their bank -- and understandably so. With the Subaru Outback, you will not have to worry about that, though. That is because the Subaru Outback is much more affordable than the Toyota Highlander -- almost $5,000 more affordable!

Further, the Subaru Outback comes with standard all-wheel drive. The Toyota Highlander does not. That means you only get the safety, and the confidence, provided with all-wheel drive with the Subaru Outback.

Moreover, the Subaru Outback is more fuel efficient than its competitor by a large margin -- the Outback offers 32 highway mpg; the Highlander offers 24.

As if that isn't enough, the Subaru Outback's towing capacity is more than one thousand pounds greater than that of the Toyota Highlander.

This also does not take into account the Subaru Outback's incredible reputation for safety, nor the fact that the Subaru Outback offers you more front headroom, and more cargo volume, than the Toyota Highlander.

Overall, with the Subaru Outback, you can save almost $5,000 and still get all-wheel drive, a higher towing capacity, better fuel efficiency, more headroom, and more cargo volume.
