Subaru Outback

You know where the pavement meets the mud? That’s where you want to be. Both SUVs can take you there, though one may be better suited for your next adventure than the other. Let’s find out which one should serve as your off-roading companion.

All-Terrain Prowess

Both models are powerful contenders, such as the Subaru with its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive . One big difference is how high they stand off the ground.

The Venza boasts about 7.7 inches of ground clearance, while the Outback provides 8.7 inches of ground clearance so you can clear the largest obstacles.

Customize Your Drive

Both vehicles offer several drive modes, but only the Subaru Outback comes with X-MODE® . It’s integrated with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and when activated, it optimizes the performance of this SUV for all-terrain driving. It’s even available with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes for when you’re really in the thick of it.

There’s also Active Torque Vectoring . This performance system is standard on the Outback and helps balance the braking power to the inside front wheel so you can enjoy better handling around sharp turns. The Toyota Venza offers a similar feature known as Active Cornering Assist.

You’ll be spending a lot of time inside your new SUV. That’s why both models offer all the comfort and connectivity you could ask for. Whether you’re just driving across town or having a road trip adventure, you’ll love both options.

Adventure-Ready Interior

In fact, both models are available with leatherette upholstery that’s durable and easy to clean. However, you may find the water-repellent StarTex® upholstery —available on the Outback—is even better suited to your adventurous lifestyle.

Not only is it good for adventures, but it will also protect the seats from anything the kids might spill.


BWhen you’re way off the map, it’s important to stay connected. That’s why both the Subaru Outback and the Toyota Venza come with advanced infotainment systems. Both models offer systems such as:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM®
  • HD Radio®
  • Bluetooth®
  • Navigation

If you’re looking to blast the tunes on your next adventure, the Toyota Venza is available with nine JBL® speakers. The Outback, on the other hand, will truly surround you in your favorite sounds with the available Harman Kardon® premium audio system , which includes 12 speakers .

Once you return to civilization, you’ll have all the confidence you need with these two SUVs. They come packed with smart safety features to provide added peace of mind. Getting safely from Point A to Point B will be easier than ever.

Street-Savvy Safety Features

If you’re looking for a safe SUV, the Subaru Outback and the Toyota Venza are both strong contenders. In fact, both models come standard with:

  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
Advanced Safety Systems

The Outback takes things one step further with the DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System . It will alert you when it detects drowsy or distracted driving so you can refocus on the road or pull over and take a break. The Venza doesn’t offer a similar feature.

What about when you’re in the parking lot? Both the Outback and the Venza have your back there, too—literally. They’re available with Reverse Automatic Braking , which may apply the brakes if you get too close to an obstacle while backing up.
