So, you're in the market for a new crossover with comfortable accommodations, flexible cargo space, and maybe even a bit off off-road capability thrown in for good measure. And you've heard that Subaru SUVs are well-loved for their versatility, safety, and adventurous. But which one is best suited to your needs and lifestyle? Below, we'll briefly highlight some of the distinguishing characteristics of each model so you can have a better idea of where to begin your search.

While Subaru SUVs each offer a unique experience, they share many desirable attributes as standard equipment, STARLINK® multimedia with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, 8.7-inches of ground clearance, and X-MODE advanced traction control for all CVT-equipped models (except Forester base). Additionally, all models with the Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission include EyeSight® driver-assistance technologies like Pre-Collision Braking, Lane-Keep Assist, and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering.

  • Subaru Crosstrek: It may be the smallest model in the SUV lineup, but the Subaru Crosstrek offers plenty of flexible utility, with configurable passenger/cargo accommodations and real off-road capability. The new Sport trim level enhances Crosstrek's adventurous character and ability with unique aesthetic touches and a dual-function X-MODE system with extra settings for DEEP SNOW/MUD.

  • Subaru Forester: If you need more room in the second-row or expanded cargo capacity, Subaru's compact crossover option delivers with one of the most spacious cabins in its class. It offers 71 cubic feet of cargo space (76 for the base model) and more passenger volume than prominent segment competitors like CR-V, RAV4, and Escape.

  • Subaru Outback: Perhaps the most recognizable in Subaru's lineup, the Outback was once a wagon variant of the Legacy sedan. When Subaru spun it off into its own nameplate, it became the catalyst for transforming the automaker into the adventurous brand it's known as today. Now a labeled a midsize crossover, the Outback hasn't forgotten its wagon roots and offers an excellent blend of passenger space and cargo capacity, plus an available turbocharged powerplant and a 3,500-pound max towing capacity.

  • Subaru Ascent: For larger Mechanicsville families seeking the Subaru experience with extra seatbelts, there's the Subaru Ascent. The largest vehicle in Subaru's lineup provides roomy and refined accommodations, standard advanced safety features, and adventure-ready capabilities for crews of seven or eight.
