We compared the two models side by side to see which had all the advantages. In the end, the Toyota Venza emerged as the true winner in the segment. Here’s why:

Fuel economy

The 2021 Venza is a hybrid model, taking its power from a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine and yielding up to 40 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway.* The 2021 Outback simply can’t compete with the hybrid powertrain of the Venza; it manages only up to 26 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway.


The new Toyota Venza comes standard with a number of technologies that are only optional — or not available at all — on the Subaru Outback. Among these are safety technologies like Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, cornering brake control, a Blind Spot Warning sensor, and a wireless charging pad. Comfort and convenience technology such as power adjustable front driver seats and heated door mirrors, as well as a power liftgate, are other hallmarks unique to the Venza.

Better care

The 2021 Toyota Venza has no mileage cap on its roadside assistance where as the 2021 Subaru Outback maxes out at 36,000 miles. Further, only the Toyota Venza comes with no cost maintenance for 24 months or 25,000 miles. Finally, the Venza boasts a hybrid battery warranty lasting 120 months or 150,000 miles.
