New Subaru Outback Climbs to Best Seller in segment

Subaru Outback – The large SUV market is showing strong performance growth in March with a surprise leader of the pack.

MY21 Subaru Outback AWD Touring

This segment has been dominated by Toyota in recent years especially with their Prado.  Other well know competitors are the Mitsubishi Pajero, Hyundai Sante Fe, Kia Sorento and a few models from Jeep.

But for the month of March 2021, the Subaru Outback sold the most vehicles of any model. Subaru launched a new model of the Outback in the middle of February 2021.


Unlike many other models in the category the Outback looks less like a large four-wheel drive and more like a station wagon.

It is comfortable, has all-wheel drive and a 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine that is 90% new but still of modest power.

It is priced from $39,000 to a little under $48,000 plus on road costs.
