2015 Honda Crosstour

If you’re searching for a crossover in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area that offers car-like handling and SUV utility, then the 2015 Honda Crosstour and 2015 Subaru Outback should both fit the bill. If you’re considering adding one of these versatile vehicles to your garage, read on to see a detailed comparison.

Powertrains and Performance

The 2015 Honda Crosstour and the 2015 Subaru Outback both provide drivers with a choice of either a four-cylinder engine for efficiency and a more muscular V6. In the base trim levels the Honda wins out with a 192 hp 2.4L four-cylinder, while the Outback has a 2.5L four that only makes 175 hp.

In the upgraded options, the all-wheel drive V6-equipped Honda Crosstour makes 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque and nets an EPA highway estimate of 28 mpg*. The Subaru Outback gets a 3.6L V6 that only makes 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque, which yields an EPA highway estimate of only 27 mpg.

It’s easy to see that the Honda Crosstour offers the superior blend of performance and efficiency.

Comfort and Convenience

The 2015 Honda Crosstour and the 2015 Subaru Outback are both exceptionally well-equipped. The Honda does come with a rearview camera with an optional electronic parking aid, a CD changer, a power moonroof, heated exterior mirrors, privacy glass, and foglights, and a stereo antitheft system. None of those features come standard in the Subaru Outback. The Crosstour also gives you alloy wheels on all models, which are missing on the base Outback.
