Find out how the new Outback SUV compares to the competition for your coastal commute!

How Does the Outback Compare to the Edge?

The new Subaru Outback and new Ford Edge vehicles both offer spacious seating for up to five total passengers, serving as a comfortable option for Hilton Head Island families. Take a seat inside of the Subaru SUV to enjoy abundant passenger space, with reclining second-row seats for additional comfort on long road trip excursions. The Outback and Edge vehicles offer similar cargo space with the rear seats folded down for additional cargo capacity. Both models also feature contemporary design and soft-touch surfaces, however the Ford SUV model does come with several plastic components that look and feel less desirable than what you'd find inside of the Subaru.

Feel Safe In Any Situation With The Outback's Superior Handling

The new Subaru Outback SUV perfectly balances the comfort and efficiency of a sedan with the off-road prowess of an SUV, making it an ideal choice for Hilton Head Island commuters. Both the Subaru and the Ford Edge can transport you between your coastal destinations in style, but only the Outback boasts a standard All Wheel Drive (AWD) system. In fact, the Subaru Outback comes designed around the brand's legendary Symmetrical AWD system, unlike the Ford SUV. If you desire the improved handling and control of an AWD system for the Ford Edge, you'll need to pay more out of your pocket for an available AWD option that simply does not match the quality of the Subaru AWD. The Ford Edge features a standard Front Wheel Drive (FWD) system.

Outback Saves You Money At The Pump

Both the Subaru and Ford Edge offer ample horsepower for your journeys, with a wide array of engine options to customize your daily commuting needs. What these SUV models share in common in terms of power and engine variety begins to show a stark difference when looking at fuel economy and overall efficiency. Not many SUV models can compare to the Subaru when focusing on straight fuel economy. The Outback delivers an estimated 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway in the four-cylinder models, made even more efficient with the standard Subaru Symmetrical AWD system. In comparison, the Ford Edge offers up to 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway and no standard symmetrical AWD system to improve power efficiency.
