2018 Subaru Outback Exterior Cargo SpaceOne of the most important aspects of any SUV is cargo space. After all, beyond a go-anywhere, do-anything attitude, people choose these vehicles as a means to haul their gear. Obviously, taking your crossover off-road for a camping trip is less fun if you can't pack your tent and gear with you while you go.

Those who are looking for the best in cargo space as well as great performance and technology are wise to look at the 2018 Subaru Outback. Drivers across the Philadelphia, Doylestown, and Warminster areas love the Subaru Outback cargo space. Take a look at how much room it offers and learn where to go to take a test drive.

Outback Cargo Space

2018 Subaru Outback Cargo SpaceSubaru advertises the new Outback as having plenty of room for play. To haul your big gear, there's roof racks with retractable cross bars. Inside, it offers plenty of customizable space with its 60/40 split-fold back seats, so you can have extra storage while still having room for a backseat passenger or two.

The versatility actually continues all the way through the tailgate. It's available in a power format with height memory, so you can set the perfect adjustment for your needs. When all the seats are folded down, in fact, it's got a full 73.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Behind the rear seats, you'll get 36 cubic feet of space.

Convenient Storage Compartments

Of course, storage space goes far beyond one giant compartment for your major gear. The Outback also offers tons of cubbyholes and compartments for small-item storage, so whether it's a first aid kit, emergency tool kit, laptop or mobile device, or even just extra coffee cups, you'll have tons of room for your gear on the go.

The new Outback features eight cup holders, pockets in each door handle which are perfectly sized for mp3 players and smartphones, and a center bin with two-stage design. Finally, there's underfloor cargo area storage compartments, so when you need to store valuables discreetly and out of sight, you'll be ready to go.

Independent Evaluations

2018 Subaru Outback Cargo SpaceCar and Driver gave the Outback four stars, placing it right in line with some of the best in its class. Instead of cubic inches, the publication judges space by the number of average-sized carry-on luggage you can stow. Its findings said that behind the back seats, you can fit 10 carry-on bag-sized pieces in the crossover. When you fold the back row down, you can fit up to 22 pieces of carry-on luggage.

In terms of cubby storage, the website measures space in terms of the number of ping pong balls that can fit inside. This is because ping pong balls better mimic the amount of space you lose in practical terms, due to the irregular shape of the things you store. They found that the center console can store up to 140 ping pong balls, with each door pocket storing 36 and all frontal compartments together storing up to 359 balls. For more perspective, a can of soda is about 3 balls and a square box of tissues is about 30.
