The Honda Pilot and Subaru Outback represent their respective brands well in that they are two of the most off-road savvy crossovers each makes has to offer. Automobile Magazine recently compiled some research together about the differences between these respective crossovers. We noticed a few key advantages pointed out about how the Outback comes out on top[p. While these two might not be as comparable in terms of interior space, they both shine in the realms of safety and off-road capabilities. Shoppers can find the 2020 Subaru Outback available for purchase or lease at Don Miller Subaru East, located less than 20 minutes outside of Waunakee, MI, here in Madison.

Superiority on the Off-Road

While these two crossovers vary greatly in size, as the Outback seats five whole the Pilot seats eight, Automobile Magazine pointed out several areas where the Outback shines. As an off-roading car, the Subaru Outback offers the better choice for outdoorsy people near Watertown as it comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-Mode® to enhance the AWD, and a convertible roof rack. Through integrated crossbars, standard on base Subaru Outback models, the roof rails of this crossover turn into a rack that can hold up to 150 lbs. of equipment. People who enjoy camping and skiing outside Sun Prairie, WI, might appreciate the difference a roof rack makes.

The Pilot, on the other hand, only offers all-wheel-drive as an available feature, with nothing comparable to X-Mode®. Likewise, roof rails are available on other trim levels for an extra fee. However, if you want to give your Pilot the full roof rack, you must purchase it added as an accessory.
