2022 Subaru Outback Vs 2022 Toyota RAV4 Exterior

The Subaru Outback and the Toyota RAV4 boast bold looks that will appease car shoppers. However, the Subaru Outback's design is noticeably more distinctive than the Toyota RAV4. Where the Outback stands out, the RAV4 blends in. The Outback showcases a longer body and lower roofline, whereas the RAV4 is taller and shorter in length. The Outback has a uniquely authentic adventurous design with an aggressive front fascia and sleek styling cues. It provides drivers with attractive yet functional amenities, including cutting-edge front and rear LED lighting, high ground clearance to better tackle rocky roads and steep hills, and expansive front and rear windows for better visibility and more natural light in the cabin. Other features include roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, a sunroof, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The RAV4 has standard LED headlights and available LED fog lights but doesn't offer LED lighting for anything else. Furthermore, roof rails are not standard on the RAV4, and a hands-free liftgate is not available on any trim levels.

2022 Subaru Outback Vs 2022 Toyota RAV4 Interior

The interior of both SUVs is attractive and packed with quality features, but the Subaru Outback stands out for its added luxury and comfort. The Subaru boasts a quiet cabin with abundant space and a clean, streamlined design. It provides standard features such as automatic climate control, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and one-touch 60/40-split folding rear seats. Available features on the Outback include dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, soft-touch interior trim surfaces, genuine Nappa leather seats, heated rear seats, and ventilated front seats. The RAV4 offers many of these features, but the standard features are lacking. The driver's seat for the standard trim is manual, as is the air conditioning, and a heated-leather-wrapped steering wheel is only available on higher trims. Furthermore, the RAV4 does not offer leather seats on any trim, which is a big letdown for those looking for an SUV with luxury features.

2022 Subaru Outback Vs 2022 Toyota RAV4 Technology

Both SUVs boast intuitive and innovative technology to keep you connected wherever the road takes you. The Subaru Outback provides a standard 7-inch dual touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth and SiriusXM. An 11.6-inch tablet-style infotainment display is available on premium trim levels and adds GPS navigation and a complimentary three-month subscription to SiriusXM with Travel Link and Traffic. Other tech features on the Outback include a wireless phone charger, a premium 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and SUBARU STARLINK convenience features. The RAV4 offers three touchscreen options with a standard 7-inch display and subsequent 8-inch and 9-inch options for higher trim levels. Even the largest touchscreen is noticeably smaller than the largest touchscreen on the Outback. Furthermore, SiriusXM is only available on premium trim levels for the RAV4.

2022 Subaru Outback Vs 2022 Toyota RAV4 Performance

The Subaru Outback comes standard with a 182-horsepower 2.5-litre Direct Injection SUBARU BOXER engine mated to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) with an eight-speed manual mode. The Outback is also offered with another engine option, a 2.4-litre turbocharged Direct Injection SUBARU BOXER engine that produces an impressive 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. One of the highest regarded features of Subaru models is the standard Subaru Symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, which provides drivers with increased control and stability.

The Toyota RAV4 is offered as a regular gas model, hybrid, or plug-in hybrid. For comparison's sake, only the gas model performance specifications will be compared. The gas model Toyota RAV4 is built with a 203-horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, a front-wheel drivetrain is standard on the RAV4, and all-wheel drive is only available at a higher price point.
