Is the Subaru Outback a Good Off-Road Vehicle?

Are you looking for a new adventure in the New Canaan and Westport areas? Then you might be wondering, “Is the Subaru Outback a good off-road vehicle?” The answer is yes! This versatile SUV combines a rugged build and tough engineering with refined interior features that create an oasis on wheels. That means you can navigate with confidence while driving down rainy roads, muddy trails, and any other place you dare to go!

Performance and Capabilities

The 2020 Subaru Outback off-road capabilities stem from high-tech engineering and smart design. Check out some of our favorite features:

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with X-MODE is standard across all trim levels, which allows you greater traction and control as you navigate the unknown.
  • The direct-injection SUBARU BOXER® engine generates 182 hp with up to 33 mpg on the highway with Lineartronic® CVT, so you can travel longer without searching for a gas station.
  • The 8.7 inches of ground clearance offers extra room when driving over rocks and trail debris, while also promoting good balance and handling.
  • Raised roof rails and enhanced tie-downs provide plenty of space to attach kayak, bikes, skis, and more before you head out on the Wilton roads!

Outback Onyx Edition XT

The Subaru Outback off-road prowess is evident in even the entry-level model, but if you’re a true off-roading aficionado, consider the Outback Onyx Edition XT with enhanced performance capabilities:

  • The 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds with ease.
  • Exterior accents like 18-inch black alloy wheels and rear badging create a bold first impression as your Outback hits the scene.
  • Two-tone StarTex™ water-repellant upholstery makes cleanup easy, even after the muddiest trips, and green contrasting stitching adds a pop of color.
  • Dual-Function X-MODE optimizes both Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Hill Descent Control to get the best possible traction out of even the toughest climbs.
