The Subaru Outback and Forester offer different experiences, so you'll have to decide what matters most to you. In the case of the Outback, this unit is longer and slightly wider, which offers more space inside the cabin and also helps the ride feel more smooth, stable and free-flowing. The Forester, with its slightly taller profile, provides superior visibility on the road but also comes with a more lively dynamic. If you're in need of pulling power, the Outback also wins out there, where you have that mighty 3.6-litre variant available to raise the performance stakes. Both cars have a suave and well-equipped interior, with the dearer pricing on the Outback rewarding you with a few more goodies. Otherwise, the Forester's more affordable price-point makes for compelling value.
