Overall:

Great interior space, high ground clearance, four wheel drive, many safety features, great gas mileage...what can I say. Its great. Only negative is that the engine is a little weak, lacks the pep Im used to in other cars. It is heavier, which gives it a smooth ride. Drives more like a car, than a SUV.

Good car with the 3.6 engine. Comfortable, roomy, especially cargo and back seat wise. Decent mileage and a certain visual appeal as well as outstanding 4 wheel drive (I got that lsst opinion second hand).

2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited AWD Review
GuruZGK3H 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.

Front Seats Ranked 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T Ultimate FWD better.
"Only the ventilation feature of the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T Ultimate was better than the Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited."
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."
