Although both Subarus use the Outback name, they are very different cars. The smaller of the two is the Impreza Outback Sport, a trim level on the compact Impreza and available only as a hatchback. It has an MSRP of $19,995. The Outback is a separate model all together; with an MSRP of $22,295, the Outback’s wagon body style offers additional passenger and cargo room.

Choosing the Impreza Outback Sport adds off-road flavor to the Impreza with a suspension that sits the car higher off the ground for additional ground clearance. A roof rack, two-tone color scheme and 12-volt outlet in the rear hatch are also included.
