Compare the Subaru Outback to the Nissan Rogue, Chevy Equinox & Ford Edge in Boone, NC

We here at our Boone, NC Subaru dealership serving Lenoir, Wilkesboro, West Jefferson, Banner Elk and Elizabethton love the new rides we provide. One of the most exciting AWD vehicles found anywhere on the road is the new 2017 Subaru Outback, which blends an adventurous personality with plenty of safety and family-friendly features. To give you an idea of how amazing this new Outback is, we're stacking it up against a few similar models.

Here we're comparing the Outback with the latest editions of the Chevrolet Equinox, Nissan Rogue and Ford Edge. Since the Outback comes standard with the iconic Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, we're matching it up with the AWD versions of the new Rogue, Equinox and Edge. Otherwise, all of these vehicles are compared in their stripped down, base level options, so keep that in mind as you try to find the setup with the features you want the most.

  • Once again, the standard AWD in the Outback proves to be a great value, as adding that option on other SUVs like the Equinox will end up costing you more.
  • It gets hot here in North Carolina, so the standard A/C will be a nice addition if you opt for the base level Outback, while the starting trim of the Equinox doesn't include that basic function.
  • The Outback both outperforms the Equinox, and earns better fuel efficiency when you select AWD for the Chevy model.
  • Shoulder room, leg room and head room in both the front and back of the Outback is more spacious than what you'll find in the Equinox, giving you and your passengers added layers of comfort.
