Capabilities and Performance 

As a driver in Washington, you're in need of foul-weather capabilities from your next SUV. The Subaru Outback brings legendary off-road cred to the table through its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and 8.7-inches of ground clearance. Right off the showroom floor this rugged SUV is ready to tackle whatever adventures you have planned. Have you ever noticed the surprisingly high number of Subaru Outback SUVs cruising through Sammamish? That's largely due to the fact that Subaru models are built to last. In fact, an outstanding 98 percent of Subaru Outback models sold in the past decade are still on the roads to this day! In terms of performance, the Subaru SUV features a highly sensible and efficient SUBARU BOXER engine capable of generating 175 horsepower. Or, opt for the more thrilling 256 horsepower engine for a bit more muscle under the hood. 

The Acura RDX features only one engine; a 2.0-liter engine which produces 272 horsepower. In its most fuel efficient FWD configuration, the engine still doesn't hold up the Subaru Outback with its 28-highway mpg rating (the Subaru Outback makes a smart 32 highway mpg). Plus, the All-Wheel-Drive system doesn't come standard on the Acura RDX. 

Interior Tech and Space 

You'll be spending a decent amount of time trekking to and from the numerous state parks, zoos, and recreational areas in the Bellevue and Mercer Island areas. The Subaru Outback provides an ample 108.1 cubic feet of room for your passengers. The Acura RDX features 104 cubic feet of passenger space, so those passengers on the taller and larger side will appreciate every extra inch afforded to them in Subaru Outback's cabin. 

Keeping your passengers content on the roads is always important, especially if you have young children! Both models boast intuitive multimedia systems. Side with the Subaru Outback and you'll have a standard SUBARU STARLINK 6.5-inch Multimedia Plus system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The Acura RDX showcases an included Acura Premium Audio System which also allows you to access your favorite content on your phone through the same technology.

Safety Tech 

The Subaru Outback includes the well-regarded Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist technology suite of safety systems to help you maintain control on the roads no matter how heavy the traffic flows. The Acura RDX includes a standard bundle of driver assistive and safety technologies through AcuraWatch. So, journey with that well-deserved peace of mind in either SUV; they both have your back!
