In this video, Publisher Tim Esterdahl reviews the 2021 Subaru Outback Onyx. He shares some of the things he likes about it, features he is impressed by, and a few things he felt a little meh about.

Overall, Esterdahl feels like this is another solid hit for the automaker.

Family-friendly interior

Kids? Pets? No problem. The 2021 Subaru Outback has water-resistant seats. It is also loaded down with safety features, great technology and plenty of cargo space.

One of the highlights for Tim was the plastic liner in the back that protects the cargo area. This could be great for anyone who likes to bring their dog along for the ride. The cargo area also has a nice cover to hide your goods and the second row folds flat if you need to extend your cargo space.

And who wouldn’t love the cool green double stitching on the seats, the great 11.6-inch touch screen infotainment system, and wireless charging for compatible devices?

The 2021 Subaru Outback is a capable AWD vehicle

This little crossover (or wagon, depending on your perspective) can tow 3,500 pounds. It has traction control that you can turn on and off and five different drive modes: normal snow, dirt, snow and deep snow. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, this utility vehicle is ready for a little off-pavement time in the Outback. (Pun intended.)

The 2021 Subaru Outback’s infotainment screen offers some unique tabs like a great maintenance screen to keep track of things and an advanced tab with cool graphics and explanations of each feature.

Tim says the estimated highway fuel economy is 30 MPG, which is pretty impressive for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The price point is also really good, and while this isn’t a luxury car by any means, it is comfortable and has plenty of power.

With ample storage, good performance and new technology, the Subaru Outback Onyx should be at the top of many vehicle shopping lists.
