The Edge handles much more smoothly on the road. It is equipped with gas-charged shocks and drift steering compensation. Both features anticipate a bumpy road and work to keep you driving straight.  The Outback does not feature either of these.

The Edge, unlike the Outback, features Active Park Assist2 as an available feature. While you control the speed and brake as needed, Active Park Assist uses a camera to monitor the surroundings for a perfect parallel park.

If you need to charge your laptop on the go, the SEL, Titanium and Platinum models feature a 115-volt a/c outlet. This type of current is comparable to that in a house. You won’t find this in the Subaru Outback.

The Edge will keep you cooler than the Outback in the summer. You can lower your front windows from a distance to let the heat out. There are also available air-conditioned seats and rear air-conditioned vents.

The Outback also does not feature SYNC®3, an easy to use voice-activated technology that allows you to make calls and change your music as you drive.

As you can see, the Edge has more to offer than the Outback.
