The Subaru Outback is a popular SUV for many drivers across Bucks County for its long-lasting quality and reliability, commitment to safety, and how the Outback is ready for everything. While many Outback drivers know that the 2018 Outback will be their next vehicle there are some drivers who are shopping around to make sure they get the best vehicle for them. Which is why we are comparing the Golf Alltrack to the Subaru Outback in all the ways that matter most. Then all you have to do is come down for a test drive and see why so many Allentown drivers love the Subaru Outback.


Powertrain & Performance

Like many drivers from around Northampton County fuel efficiency and spirited performance is something you are looking for from your next vehicle. Both of which the Subaru Outback does better than the Golf Alltrack. The Golf Alltrack is powered by a 1.8L Turbo four-cylinder that generates 170 horsepower and gets up to 30 highway MPG. The Outback however has two powertrain options to choose from. There is the base level 2.5L four-cylinder BOXER engine with 175 horsepower and up to 32 highway MPG. Or there is the available 3.6L six-cylinder BOXER engine that generates 256 horsepower.


In addition to being more powerful and fuel efficient the Outback is ready for every adventure with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-Mode, Hill Descent Control, Active Torque Vectoring, and Traction Control System. The Golf Alltrack is available with 4MOTION all-wheel-drive that isn't as capable as Subaru's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.


Advanced Safety

Safety features are among the top features that many Lehigh County drivers are looking for and again the Subaru Outback has a lot to offer. Like Subaru's award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology that is the culmination of four advanced safety features; Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Keep Assist, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management. The Outback can also be equipped with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert,  High Beam Assist, Reverse Automatic Braking, and STARLINK™ Safety and Security connected services. The Golf Alltrack features some of the same features but they are exclusively offered on the most expensive trim level.


Price & Value

The last thing that many Bethlehem drivers look at is price and what you will get for your money. The Golf Alltrack and Subaru Outback are very close in starting price the Outback still wins with a lower MSRP and better value. The Golf Alltrack has a starting MSRP of $25,995 and the Outback starts at $25,895. But the difference in value and standard features between the Outback and Golf Alltrack is where the Outback is a better buy with more standard features. Subaru's are known for their long-lasting quality that easily reaches the 200,000 mile mark. Which is why 98% of Subaru's sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today.
