2018 Volvo V90 vs. 2018 Subaru Outback

Have you been looking at the 2018 Volvo V90 and the 2018 Subaru Outback lately? Were you thinking of just purchasing any between these two? Well, you have to take your research a little further. After all, it will not be good to commit a mistake after you have already decided on picking up any car to take home with you. We can help you see what both car models can offer through this comparison.

Design & Style

It is easy to get your eyes on the 2018 Volvo V90. After all, that elegant exterior styling is an eye-candy. You will notice that there are a lot of other things to love in this car, style, and design-wise, with the inclusion of quality materials all throughout. Despite focusing on how to make the car beautiful from within going out, the maker also made sure there is enough room for comfort too. With cushioned seats, you will definitely enjoy riding the V90.

In the case of the 2018 Subaru Outback, you cannot deny the fact that it also has its own set of beautiful attributes along the lines of design and style. It boasts of a spacious cabin but is not as impressive as that of the space found in the V90. We can give points to it for the use of great quality materials for its overall construction.

Technology & Safety

All praises go to the 2018 Volvo V90 too when it comes to its technology and safety features. It is gifted with a premium audio system that is ear-candy. The precise navigation system in this car is also enthralling. Wait until you find out how safety features have been included in it via the Pilot Assist. This one coordinates the use of steering and lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and emergency braking. You will also enjoy the inclusion of a blind spot monitoring system and the 360-degree camera in the V90.

On the other hand, if you are to scrutinize the 2018 Subaru Outback with its technology and safety features, here are things you will find out. The infotainment system connects very well with the smartphone integration capability. But when safety features are considered, it lacks what the V90 offers, although you may avail of the EyeSight package for a costlier price.


For power, the 2018 Volvo V90 relies on its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine which is capable of producing up to as much as 316 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque. For the 2018 Subaru Outback, it uses a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine. Despite the engine size difference, the Outback lags behind the V90 as it produces only up to 175 horsepower and 173lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The technology and safety features in the Volvo V90 obviously supersede what the 2018 Subaru Outback can offer. It also has an excellently styled interior that complements its exterior design. You cannot discount the fact too that it performs better than the Outback. This makes it a great car choice.
