Expert Quotes:

22 mpg city, 29 highway with four-cylinder and CVT; 19/27 with manual; 18/25 for six-cylinder
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Subaru Outback returns exceptional fuel economy for its class, even if its ratings aren't at the top of the green scale. According to the official EPA estimates, the 2.5-liter/manual combination returns 19 mpg city and 27 mpg on the highway, while the CVT gets an exemplary 22/29 rating. The 3.6-liter engine is hit with an understandable drop in efficiency and clocks in with an EPA rating of 18 mpg city and 25 mpg on the highway.

The Car Connection has seen great real-world fuel economy in the Outback as well. In a four-cylinder, CVT-equipped Outback, we saw an impressive 27 mpg overall in highway driving that included several mountain passes. Drivers in the plains will likely nudge 30 mpg.

Conclusion

Stick with the four-cylinder engine and CVT, and the 2011 Subaru Outback is one of the greenest choices among roomy crossovers or wagons.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
