The 2019 Subaru Outback has both the look and feel of a luxury crossover, but it has something extra. Unlike most of its rivals, it has a layer of toughness that can carry off the beaten path when a little adventure is called for. As a crossover, it has durable unibody construction that combines with high clearance and all-wheel drive that gives it more options.
All 2019 Subaru Outbacks are built on the same attractive crossover platform with ample interior leeway for both people and payloads. There’s over 40 inches of headroom and legroom up front along with over 38 inches for heads and legs for rear passengers. Every Outback includes all-wheel drive and there’s either a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder or 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine providing the power. Both versions use the Boxer design that places equal numbers of cylinders directly opposite one another for a flat configuration that operates smoothly while presenting a low profile for minimal swaying when turning.
The 2019 Subaru Outback announces its presence with a distinctive stretched hexagonal grille setting at the front of a crossover with a seemingly low, long body. Don’t be fooled, though, since this crossover actually possesses a clearance of 8.7 inches that’s great when road conditions aren’t so great. Exceptionally large windows for a vehicle in its size category are another advantage that make it a top choice for drivers wanting transportation capable of tackling a wide range of driving conditions. The Boxer engine design utilized by the Outback also helps to tame both smooth and rough surfaces by giving it a low center of gravity for more stability when rounding corners.
The Newest Outback Features
The biggest change for the 2019 Subaru Outback is the inclusion of a slew of features once available only in upper trim as standards in all models. With every new 2019 Subaru Outback you can expect things like an instrument panel organized around a 5-inch LCD display, a single disc CD player, the addition of SiriusXM radio, and a pair of USB ports to connect your favorite gadgetry to the vehicle’s entertainment system. The 2019 Outback also gets a safety boost with a rearview camera and the Eyesight Driver Assist Technology suite that includes front impact detection with automatic braking and lane departure detection with automatic correction across the board.
Outback Trim Features
The six 2019 Subaru Outback models, the 2.5I, Premium, Limited, and Touring, are easily packed with amenities you’d expect in crossovers with bigger price tags. Even more unique, though, they come off-road few other crossovers possess these days.
This introductory Outback powers everything up with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Boxer engine delivering 175 horsepower the works with a continuously variable transmission or CVT for 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. Hopping into the cabin, the cloth seats include a manually-adjustable 6-position driver’s seat. Along with the digital instrument panel, there’s a 6.5-inch touchscreen providing command over a 4-speaker audio system and AM/FM/CD player with two USB inputs, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, and SiriusXM radio that’ll give anyone a warm, fuzzy feeling. If the feeling gets too warm, there’s also air conditioning to cool things down.
Relying on the same 2.5-liter engine, this edition ups the entertainment levels by adding an extra pair of speakers while stretching the touchscreen to 8 inches. The 2.5i Premium inserts an additional pair of USB ports for rear seat passengers to access and puts HD radio in the mix of audio capabilities. This model also kicks comfort up a notch by switching to dual-zone climate control, adding power to a 10-position driver’s seat, and circulating heat through the front seats.
The luxury keeps coming as the Limited provides in-seat heat to second tier passenger and extends the pleasure of 10-way motorized positioning to the front passenger seat. Along with the front passenger seats, the back hatch also gets the motorization treatment. All seating is upholstered in leather and the touchscreen also includes digital navigation to its lineup. Sounds become richer thanks to a Harmon-Kardon audio system pumped through 12 speakers at 576 watts. Getting things going is as simple as pushing a button with remote starting.
Like the 2.5i Limited, the 2019 Subaru Outback Touring edition gets some safety enhancement in the form of blind spot monitoring along with a rear cross-traffic alert. Luxury-wise, the Touring takes things to the top with a heated steering wheel while adding a power moonroof overhead.
3.6i Limited and Touring
Both models offer the same line of features as their 2.5i counterparts, but they differ in the reliance on a 3.6-liter flat-6 Boxer engine instead of the lighter 2.5-liter version. Also paired with a CVT equipped with paddle shifters, this 2019 Subaru Outback block produces 256 horsepower at 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Subaru Outback
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Subaru Outback invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Subaru Outback MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
