2007 Subaru Outback Review

Note: This review was created when the 2007 Subaru Outback was new.

The Outback delivers good power, impressive off-road capability and reassuring crash test results, but can't match the fuel economy or fine-tuned transmissions of others in its class.

2007 Subaru Outback Overview

The 2007 Subaru Outback, auto reviewers find, is a wagon that combines a car-like ride with an SUV's off-road prowess and exterior styling. Edmunds writes, "Although competing crossover SUVs and wagons offer more interior room and better overall value, the 2007 Subaru Outback remains a satisfying choice for consumers who want a station wagon that looks and behaves like a sport-utility vehicle." As Road and Track puts it, "The Outback combines the virtues of a small SUV with carlike ride and handling." In fact, many reviewers seem to view SUVs as the Outback's primary competition. Forbes, for instance, says, "With rugged styling cues, a higher ride height and all-wheel drive, the Subaru Outback Wagon is a reasonable alternative to an upscale SUV."

The Outback, reviewers note, is beginning to creep toward premium territory. The Detroit News observes, "You don't tend to think of Subaru as a premium brand, but in many ways, it's evolving into the sort of classy, upscale product that Saab once was." With this transformation comes a heftier price tag. Kelley Blue Book points out, "Like other Subarus, Outbacks are a little pricey compared to similar-sized sedans and wagons." Depending on the trim level, IntelliChoice gives the Outback a rating of anywhere from "average" to "excellent" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership compared to others in its class, with the less expensive trim levels receiving the highest ratings.

The Outback is available as a 2.5i Basic, 2.5i, 2.5i L.L. Bean, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Limited L.L. Bean, 2.5 XT Limited or 3.0 R L.L. Bean.
