What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2017 Subaru Outback

2017 Subaru Outback Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.5L H4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
The fuel economy of the 2016 Subaru Outback is disappointing. Again, I owned and drove a 2013 Honda CR-V and it offered better performance and acceleration, and far better fuel economy than this car. This, despite the fact that the Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V show fuel economy ratings that are fairly close in the government measurements. Well, I drive this car the same way that I drove the Honda CR-V and also the several Honda Accords that I have owned. My gas mileage on this Subaru is consistently lower than it is and that it has been on the Hondas that I have owned and driven. This lower gas mileage coupled with the less imprssive acceleration and performance represents my biggest disappointment with this Subaru. see full Subaru Outback review
