Presenting a well-crafted and spacious interior, the 2019 Volvo V90 has easily won the hearts of car buyers in Manhattan. The winning streak goes on for this wagon because of its reliable technology and safety features. Expect a breath of fresh air with the addition of the Cross Country Volvo Ocean Race to its lineup.

Offering full redesign of its predecessor, the 2020 Subaru Outback is presented to offer high quality interior. It also has a powerful turbocharged engine as an option.

Design & Style

Built with class and athleticism, it can be pointed out that the 2019 Volvo V90 made an effort to make sure that the overall built can handle even the toughest terrains. Equipped with 19-inch wheels, and modern LED headlights, there is definitely something to look forward to in terms of exterior construction. Do not forget the LED headlights that define its edges. Its cabin, on the other hand, displays the use of premium materials as well.

Holding up to five people inside, the 2020 Subaru Outback offers great comfort in in its front seats. There is plenty of room to accommodate larger drivers in its comfortable and supportive seats. What is not good about this car is the use of manual adjustment for its base trim. You need to pay extra if you want power adjustments, instead.

Technology & Safety

Boasting the inclusion of a dependable nine-inch touchscreen display, the 2019 Volvo V90 easily handles all the functions you need. It also integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety wise, you can count on road sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, driver attention monitoring, front and rear collision warning, Pilot Assist, and active blind spot monitoring. It is also gifted with rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera.

The Outback, on the other hand, has two infotainment system screens which are both seven inches in size. Like the V90, it also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. There is a problem reading inputs on the display though, since the system itself can respond sluggishly to an input from the user. It has the EyeSight suite of driver assistance technology, which includes lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.


The 2019 Volvo V90 has two engine versions - one is the T5 that rates up to 250 horsepower, and the other the T6 that scores up to 316 horsepower. The Outback, on the other hand, carries a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder boxed engine, available to maximize output of up to 182 horsepower only.

The Bottom Line

This comparison highlights the many things that the V90 and the Outback offers. Without any doubt, the Volvo wins over the Subaru in this battle. The 2019 wagon from Volvo knows how to impress with its premium design, reliable technologies, and powerful engines.
