If exploring the outdoors sounds like the best way to spend your weekends in Nyack, then you will need a vehicle capable of handling tough terrains. Two SUVs that drivers with similar lifestyles often choose are the new Subaru Outback and Toyota RAV4. But if you were to pick one, which should it be? In the following 2024 Subaru Outback vs. Toyota RAV4 guide, the team at Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru will break down the differences in performance and interior space for you, so you can decide easily afterward!

2024 Toyota RAV4 vs. Subaru Outback: Performance

Both models come with two engine options, and while their performance is game for trails near Nanuet, they’re not equal. For one, the Outback comes with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as standard, so even if you go for the base trim, you will already have better handling and control on the road. On the other hand, you’ll need to upgrade to enjoy all-wheel drive on the RAV4. What’s more, the Subaru SUV has a more powerful available turbocharged engine that would be ideal if you want next-level performance.
