2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota RAV4: Design

The Outback is quite a bit bigger than the RAV4. That means you and all your passengers, no matter where they sit, will have more legroom to settle in and enjoy the drive. Roof rails both look rugged and expand your cargo hauling capabilities - they're standard on every 2018 Subaru Outback, and an available upgrade on the 2018 Toyota RAV4. With an in-glass radio antenna, Subaru preserved the sleek, sporty lines of the Outback. The RAV4 has its antenna in a fin on the roof. What's more, the available windshield wiper de-icer on the 2018 Subaru Outback means you'll always be able to see where you're going - even in cold and snowy conditions. That's a feature the RAV4 simply doesn't have.

2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota RAV4: Performance

Whether it's handling prowess, off-road chops or pure, straight-line speed you crave, there's more of it to be had in the 2018 Subaru Outback. Compared to the 2018 Toyota RAV4, which offers just one engine option, the Outback offers two. Its base engine is virtually identical to the base RAV4 in terms of power - but the available six-cylinder, naturally aspirated BOXER® engine produces 256 horsepower for the Subaru Outback. That's 80 more than you can get in the RAV4. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard with every Subaru Outback for superior traction; AWD is an additional upgrade to the RAV4. And with sophisticated standard technologies like X-MODE®, Hill Descent Control and Active Torque Vectoring, plus a full 8.7" of ground clearance, the Outback outperforms the RAV4 when the road ends, too.

2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota RAV4: Safety

While the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is admirably safe, winning the 2018 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Outback outshines it once again. The 2018 Subaru Outback is one of just 15 vehicles to earn the highest 2018 Top Safety Pick+ distinction from the IIHS. That means not only is it reliable in a crash, its active driver assistance features and headlights were rated, "Superior." And with available steering adaptive headlights, which turn in tandem with your steering, the Outback gives you improved nighttime visibility. You can't get steering adaptive headlights on the RAV4.
