Subaru Superstore Compares the 2017 Outback to the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

We're excited to provide Phoenix, AZ with a huge selection of all things Subaru, and that includes comparison research. When it comes to upgrading your vehicle to one that is both versatile and easy to handle in town, a wagon can be ideal. The new 2017 Subaru Outback continues to carry the banner for everything that makes this brand great, but the German engineered VW Golf SportWagen is another option. So, which one is better? We looked at the facts to see some of what separates these two models, and we found that VW reputation alone isn't enough to pass the Subaru Outback. Once you have an idea why Subaru continues to be the fastest growing brand on the market, come explore the Outback for yourself at Subaru Superstore.

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen: Design

Take one look at the impressive new 2017 Subaru Outback and the VW Golf wagon, and you'll know that you're seeing two very different vehicles. While the Volkswagen sits just 5.5 inches above the ground, the new Subaru Outback overcomes obstacles with 8.7 inches of ground clearance. This is a clear advantage to both looks and function, but step inside, and you'll notice an even bigger difference. While both models are said to carry five adults, everyone is certain to be more comfortable in the Outback with nearly 14 cubic feet more room than occupants of the VW Golf SportWagen. Along with this substantial difference in passenger space, you'll also have more cargo room in the new Subaru Outback.

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen: Performance

From adventure into the unknown to mixing it up with city traffic, it's nice to know that your next new vehicle will have the performance you need when you need it. At the entry level, the new Subaru Outback does hold a slight advantage in power, but it's how the Outback uses the power that really puts it ahead of the VW. With the renowned traction of symmetrical all-wheel drive standard on every new 2017 Subaru Outback, you'll appreciate exceptional performance on or off the road. At the top of the line, you can upgrade a VW Golf SportWagen to all-wheel drive, but what you won't find there is a more powerful engine. While the VW offers only one small 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, the Outback is available with an exhilarating 3.6-liter H6 BOXER engine or the standard 2.5-liter BOXER engine. The real difference in performance between these two models is best realized from behind the wheel during a test drive at Subaru Superstore.

2017 Subaru Outback vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen: Safety

From family outings to the daily commute, it's important to know that your next new vehicle is as safe as possible. The new Subaru Outback and the VW Golf SportWagen are recognized as safe with many of the same features we expect like advanced airbags, traction control, energy-absorbing structures, and more. However, a look at independent safety tests from the NHTSA show that there is a distinct difference. While the 2017 Outback earned the top five-star safety rating for a frontal crash, the VW fell short with only four-stars. The standard symmetrical all-wheel drive system found in every Subaru Outback and available EyeSight technology are other examples of the superior safety that comes with a new Outback.
