See How the New Subaru Outback Stacks Up Against the New Toyota Highlander

The 2022 Subaru Outback is like a wagon, SUV, and crossover all rolled into one. It has higher ground clearance than most wagons and standard Symmetrical all-wheel drive. But the placement of its BOXER® engines gives it a low center of gravity and carlike handling.


The new Toyota Highlander is a midsize SUV that seats seven to eight people. Like the Outback, the Highlander has ample cargo space and straightforward tech features. But here at Copeland Subaru Hyannis, we think the Outback has more to offer Hyannis drivers than the Highlander. Keep reading to see why.


Harwich drivers can fit the 2022 Subaru Outback into their budget much easier than they can the new Toyota Highlander. The Outback has a starting MSRP of $26,945, while the Highlander starts at $34,810.

Fuel Economy

People in Yarmouth who are trying to cut gas expenses will appreciate that the 2022 Subaru Outback gets 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The Toyota Highlander only gets 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.


Both the 2022 Subaru Outback and the new Toyota Highlander are safe vehicles with a wealth of driver assistance features. People in Barnstable, MA will like that the 2022 Subaru Outback comes standard with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which includes a head-up display. The Highlander offers a head-up display, but it's just optional.

Digital Connectivity

The 2022 Subaru Outback's STARLINK Multimedia system is intuitive and responsive, with sharp graphics that are easy to see while driving. The Toyota Highlander's infotainment system is mostly user-friendly, but it doesn't always function as smoothly as it should.

Off-Road Capability

The 2022 Subaru Outback comes standard with Symmetrical all-wheel drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance that enable it to tackle rugged trails and harsh terrain. The new Toyota Highlander only has eight inches of ground clearance, and it comes with front-wheel drive. Hyannis drivers who enjoy going off the beaten path will especially like the Outback's new Wilderness trim. It has 9.5 inches of ground clearance and an upgraded version of Subaru's X-Mode traction control system.
