2010 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


The 2.5 L engine is plenty for highway acceleration and high altitude driving. I like the interior design and look. All the controls on the dashboard and steering wheel are comfortable and intuitive. The AC is sufficiently powerful. The music system is ok with the circle surround and speed adaptable volume features. The driver and passenger space is plenty. There is good front, side, and rear visibility. I like the cubby below the cargo floor. Initially I found the drive to be floaty and strongly affected by crosswinds and passing semi-trucks at highways speeds. So I replaced the rear sway bar with a thicker 19 mm STI bar and the ride improved considerably. I definitely recommend the car!

Best Features

Remote engine starter AWD Huge cargo space

Worst Features

Increase the thickness of the stock 15 mm rear sway bar for better ride and handling.
