Used Subaru Outback for Sale

In the world of Subaru vehicles, there's nothing more iconic than the Outback. Capable, spacious, and incredibly dependable, it's easy to see why it's such a popular pick for many used car buyers. However, will it be the perfect used car for you?

Here at Val-U-Line®, we think a used Outback can be ideal for any driver in the area, whether you're a daily commuter or a college student. Here are a few reasons why.

A Used Subaru: A Car Capable of Adventure

Subaru Outback Off-Road

It doesn't matter if you're looking to get through rough weather or you're planning your next off-road adventure, a used Subaru Outback has your back. Most models come with standard all-wheel drive to keep you stable and in control no matter what the roads you're traveling on are like.

Also, with all that capacity comes impressive power. Pre-owned Subaru Outback models equipped with the standard 4-cylinder engine can generate around 155 to 173 horsepower depending on the model year. If you want to feel a little more thrill when you're behind the wheel, opt for a wagon with the 6-cylinder engine. With this powertrain, you can get up to 212 to 256 horsepower.

Spacious Interior

Whether you want to grab four of your closest friends for your next road trip or you need to move a few pieces of furniture into your new dorm, count on the Outback to have all the space you need.

With this Subaru SUV, you'll have a versatile interior to ensure comfort for your passengers even when the trunk is loaded with all your cargo. In terms of overall trunk space, dimensions will vary from model year to model year.

For example, third-generation models from 2005 to 2009 had over 33 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row and up more than 65 cubic feet of maximum trunk space behind the first row. Fourth-generation models from 2010 to 2014 come with around 34.3 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row and 71.3 cubic feet behind the first row.

Dependable and Packed with Safety Features

After years on the road, it's clear that a used Subaru Outback is reliable. It was an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK from 2010 to 2012, and it's been a TOP SAFETY PICK+ since 2013. Plus, most wagons sold within the last decade are still just as dependable and powerful today.

Of course, this pre-owned SUV's reliability isn't just based on accolades. A used Outback can also come with cutting-edge safety to better ensure your peace of mind. Some of the safety features available can include EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology.

EyeSight® was introduced for 2013 model years, and it's helped pave the way for smart automotive safety ever since. If your used Outback comes with this suite of driver-assist technologies, you may have access to the following features:
