2019 outbacks are equipped with all-wheel drive and continuously variable automatic transmissions across the board, mated to either a 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder used engine or a 256-hp, 3.6-liter six-cylinder. the 3.6-liter is only available in limited and touring trim levels.

notable standard features on other trims:

  • 2.5i premium models ($29,420) add an all-weather package that includes heated seats and mirrors, as well as a larger 8-inch multimedia screen.
  • 2.5i limited models ($33,820) up the luxury inside the cabin with leather seating surfaces, and improve passenger comfort with heated rear seats and rear air-conditioning vents. a power liftgate and keyless entry with push-button start are also standard.
  • 2.5i touring models ($37,770) get an exclusive interior treatment with brown leather and contrasting white stitching. outside, dark-gray grille inserts, 18-inch wheels and silver-finish roof rails complete the touring look. standard safety features at this level include led adaptive headlights.
  • 3.6r limited ($35,970) and 3.6r touring ($39,970) don't add extra features but will produce more power from those extra two cylinders under the hood.

a new competitor for the outback this year is the buick regal tourx wagon, which has a similar price range but will cost a few thousand dollars extra from the lowest to the highest trims. as always, it's worth pointing out that while $40,000 for an outback may seem exorbitant, its suv competitors — the ford edge, jeep grand cherokee and nissan murano, among others — can cost significantly more without any appreciable increase in capabilities or features.
