    2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited Review
    says:
    This vehicle has nearly all the options that Subaru offers. It is very pleasing to drive and has great safety features. The fuel economy is surprising for the size of the vehicle, yet it has decent acceleration when needed. The seating is very comfortable with heated front and rear seats capability. The drivers seat has memory positions for two drivers in addition to the power seat positioning. The rear seats will recline. The interior for the model we chose has beige leather seats and door trim so that the interior has some color appeal other than gray or black. We are very pleased with the exterior color choice of Titanium Metallic. It helps hide dirt and we live on country roads.

    Family Car Ranked 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T Ultimate FWD worse.
    "More rear leg room and better rear side visibility and comfortable rear seats plus the front passenger power seat all combine to make it a better choice for us. The Subaru has a slight edge on safety related features also."

    2017 Subaru Outback 3.6R Touring Review

    2017 Subaru Outback Review
    says:
    Liked the power but not the confined cockpit feeling & video game dash & console. Too distracting & poor visibilty with the 2 forward facing sensors by the rear view mirror. Personal preference of not liking all the sensors telling me how to drive.

    2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Review
    says:
    Pros: Leather seats and power liftgate are nice luxuries. Cons: Eyesight safety package physically hangs a little in the same general area as the rearview mirror slightly reatricting the drivers viewing area, though not dramatically.
