“This new fifth generation of the Outback impresses with not just an abundance of utility,
but a newfound level of class within the spacious cabin.”
– Edmunds.com, 2015 Outback Road Test
“We just bought our first Subaru, a 2015 Outback! I surprised my wife a few days ago
with a big bow on her first-ever new car! This is a special car! We have a three week old little girl,
and an eight year old boy to protect. The safety, reliability, efficiency, and the way
the cars are built in zero landfill plants sold us.”
– Justin D., Baltimore, MD
According to ALG, the 2016 Outback maintains its value longer
than any other vehicle in the Midsize Utility segment.*
