The 2023 Subaru Outback Starts Lower

The 2023 Subaru Outback packs a lot of features, giving you plenty to work with even in its base form. Its starting price is over $8,000 lower than the starting price of the Toyota Highlander, making it easier to find an Outback model that perfectly matches your needs and budget. With a friendly starting price and a rich selection of standard features, the Outback is ready to help you open a new chapter.

The 2023 Subaru Outback is Ready for Adventure

Unlike the Toyota Highlander, the Subaru Outback comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. AWD is available on the Highlander, but only as an upgrade, meaning you'll have to pay more to get it on an SUV that is already more costly. The Highlander also trades efficiency for power, offering a stronger engine at the cost of fuel economy. The Outback offers up to 26 city MPG and 33 highway MPG, making it a considerably more efficient choice.

Dive into Exterior and Interior Details

The Subaru Outback is slightly smaller and sleeker than the Toyota Highlander, making the Outback a bit easier to maneuver around town. The Outback also offers superior ground clearance, boasting up to 9.5 inches. Inside, both models offer impressive cabin space. However, the Highlander uses its extra room for a cramped third row. The Outback comfortably seats five and offers plenty of room for camping gear and other items.
