With a splendidly powerful engine, massive towing capability, and a range of the technologies and safety devices that run the gamut, the 2017 Subaru Outback promises drivers from Colorado a reliable and high-performing drive. Don't want to take our word for it? You don't need to just compare the new Outback to one of its competitor vehicles, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, to see what we mean!


First of all, this is a fabulously powerful car.

  • The 2017 Subaru Outback - In the Outback, you'll be able to opt for either a 2.5L H4, 16-valve DOHC engine that can produce as much as 175 hp and 174 lb-ft, or a 3.6L SUBARU Boxer 6-cylinder engine that produces a tremendous 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. What's more, you'll get strong fuel economy-the Outback boasts as much as 25 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway-and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive transmission, which channels power to particular wheels and axles, thereby optimizing performance no matter the terrain type or weather conditions.

  • The 2017 Tiguan Volkswagen - What about the Tiguan? It's like apples and oranges: its single 2.0L Turbo engine gives you nothing more than 200 ho and 207 lb-ft of torque.

Towing Power

Fine, but what does the Outback's increased horsepower translate into in real terms? Towing capability, that's what.

  • The 2017 Subaru Outback - To be specific, the Outback boasts as much as 2,700 pounds of towing power, meaning that you're never going to have to worry about lugging the trailer through the mountains this spring.

  • The 2017 Tiguan Volkswagen - The Tiguan on the other hand only provides you with 2,220 pounds of towing capability, making it a much less powerful vehicle.


Finally, the Outback is also equipped with a range of exciting safety systems, too.

  • The 2017 Subaru Outback - For example, you'll get Eyesight Driver Assist Technology, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System, Brake Assist, and Vehicle Dynamics Control. And that's just the beginning.

  • The 2017 Tiguan Volkswagen - The Tiguan is crafted from high-strength steel and features a safety cage, and you'll get a Tire Pressure Monitor and Intelligent Crash Response System, but the VW doesn't offer the Subaru's unique Eyesight Driver Assist system.
