Interior Design and Features: 2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota Highlander
Starting with the 2018 Outback, each trim level comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The 2018 Highlander only provides you with basic bluetooth connectivity on an entry level trim. Comfort for your passengers is important right? Well in this case, less is more! The '18 Outback features less seating than the '18 Highlander but in return more leg room, more headroom for the driver and more than double the cargo space when the Highlander has it's third row up. Subaru also comes with standard roof rails, allowing for you to add more cargo up above!

Safety Features: 2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota Highlander
Subaru is among one of the safest brands to drive, and according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety's 2018 Top Safety Pick+ distinction, this has been proved yet again. The 2018 Subaru Outback was awarded this coveted award over the 2018 Highlander because you simply can't get these extra safety features on the Highlander. The '18 Outback comes with available Steering Adaptive Headlights, Reverse Automatic Braking and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. These features detect passing unseen objects while reversing, and stopping the vehicle when there is too little time to react. 

Performance and Reliability: 2018 Subaru Outback VS 2018 Toyota Highlander
When it comes to reliability, we all know Subaru takes the cake. With 98% of Subaru vehicles sold in the past decade still on the road today, can you say winning? When it comes to performance, the 2018 Outback out performs the competition with the biggest, baddest motor in its class. The available 3.6L Boxer Engine gives the 3.6R Outback Touring 256hp! The Toyota Highlander in return has a comparable 3.5L V6 engine available, but thanks to a much heavier body it underperforms when put to the test. It also gets significantly less fuel economy than the 2018 Outback!
