Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Palisade than in the Subaru Outback, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Palisade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru Outback.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Subaru Outback, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Palisade.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Subaru Outback will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Palisade. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru Outback carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Palisade.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Outback is much slimmer than the Hyundai Palisade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Subaru Outback is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Palisade, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Subaru Outback has much lower torque than the Hyundai Palisade, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Subaru Outback has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Palisade, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Palisade is clearly the choice over the Subaru Outback for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Subaru Outback has a lot less horsepower than the Hyundai Palisade.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Subaru Outback seats a lot fewer people than the Hyundai Palisade. The Subaru Outback has less cargo space than the Hyundai Palisade, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Subaru Outback is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Palisade.
