Compare the Honda Pilot to the Subaru Outback


Reading Dealership Compares the Honda Pilot to the Subaru Outback

At the Honda Gallery we believe in "Exceeding Expectations" and one way we aim to do that is by making your shopping experience a little easier with our comparison page that shows the similarities and differences between our new Honda inventory and the competitors.

This time we'll be comparing the family-friendly Honda Pilot to the Subaru Outback, a vehicle that is often lauded for its family appeal as well.

Features of the Honda Pilot SUV in our Reading Showroom

First we'll look at shape and size. With the Honda Pilot you'll be getting a vehicle that very much looks like an SUV; it's all angles and no curves. We find the shape very utilitarian and it says "we mean family business." You'll be able to comfortably sit up to 8 people with the third row seating, and max cargo volume comes in at 87.0 cubic feet.

Features of the Subaru Outback for Reading, MA Drivers

With the Subaru Outback you'll get a wagon meets hatchback styling that is very curvy. We admit it's aesthetically appealing, but those curves mean not as much space inside. Max cargo volume is 73.3 cubic feet and you'll also only be able to fit 5 people total.

The Pilot vs. the Outback for Trims Levels and More

When it comes to trims and powertrains to choose from you'll get more with the Honda Pilot. You'll have 5 trims and each trim comes in either 2WD or 4WD, so you can choose the type of traction you want. Subaru is known for its standard all-wheel drive system and you'll get four trims. All-wheel drive is a great option for some depending on the roads you travel, but with a good set of snow tires, you can take on our tough winters. Really, though, we appreciate Honda's option to let you, the driver, choose.

Finally, we also like the wider financing range with the Honda Pilot. It does start higher than the Subaru Outback, but you will be able to fit more people and gear. You clearly get more car than the Subaru when you buy or lease a Pilot. You'll also really be able to pick and choose the features you want and need and those you can do without.

To really see how great the Honda Pilot is, you'll need to come down yourself for a test drive, and bring along the whole family! Our dealership serves drivers from Reading, Woburn, Burlington, Medford and Boston, MA and we look forward to meeting you!
