What is the Cost to Own a Subaru Outback?

The 2021 Subaru Outback has a predicted cost of ownership of about $40,600 over five years. In comparison, most midsize SUVs cost about $48,000 to own over five years. The cost of a car's ownership is determined using several factors, including the price of the lease or loan, loan interest rates, taxes, fees associated with a new car purchase, the average cost of fuel, and expenses for the car's predicted maintenance and repairs. If you buy a new Subaru Outback, the cost of depreciation also factors into the equation.

Since the Subaru Outback requires fewer stops at the gas station, its fuel prices are lower than what you'll pay with similar vehicles. The Subaru Outback comes standard with all-wheel drive.
