Both the Subaru Outback and the Subaru Crosstrek are exceptionally capable AWD SUVs that are worth your time. But which one makes more sense for your Nyack drives? To start, the 2023 Subaru Outback is mid-sized while the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek is compact, so you can expect a space difference. Our team of Subaru experts is more than happy to walk you through the differences when it comes to interior space and performance below!

Subaru Outback or Crosstrek: Interior Space

As you’re researching the Subaru lineup, you likely have a preference for how much space you need when you’re out and about in Montvale. Overall, the new Outback interior has more passenger and cargo volume than the Crosstrek. Specifically, there is more room for rear passengers in the Outback. But that is not to say that the Crosstrek isn’t spacious enough– it might actually be more suitable for folks who tend to pack lighter or don’t often have guests in the backseat! Check out the Subaru Outback vs. Crosstrek interior dimensions here:

Subaru Outback or Crosstrek: Performance

What about the performance? Both models are capable and offer plenty of control with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive being standard on all trims across the board. However, the Outback packs more power whether you’re comparing base or available engines. While more power is ideal for some, it’s not necessary for others, so if the Crosstrek’s performance is more than enough for you in Nanuet, then you’ll be happy with the specs it delivers!
