4 Ways the 2017 Subaru Outback Beats the 2017 Honda Pilot

  • Subaru's advanced safety systems don't just protect you during an accident- they work to help prevent them from occurring in the first place. The Subaru Outback comes standard with a pre-collision safety system that protects you on every road- a standard system you won't find available in the Honda Pilot.
  • Ready to take to the air? You can in the 2017 Subaru Outback. The Outback's optional moon roof allows fresh air and natural light in when you need it- another option you won't find available in Honda Pilot.
  • What good is an SUV if you have to leave something behind? The Outback's cargo space knocks the Honda Pilot out of the park. You'll have over thirty-five cubic feet of trunk space in the Subaru Outback - nearly twice that of the Honda Pilot, which only offers around 17 cubic-feet.
  • You don't just get more in the Outback, you get more for less. That's because the starting MSRP for a similarly-equipped Pilot starts at $33K, compared to a $25K starting MSRP for its Subaru counterpart.
