Which Subaru Can Tow the Most?


Subaru cars and SUVs were made to bring things along.

But, sometimes you fill up the interior of your crossover before you even get a chance to load up bags!

And, of course, there are the Long Island and Huntington drivers who need to bring things along that can't fit in or on top of their vehicle--like motorbikes, boats, or a larger number of bikes.

If you've filled to bursting with passengers (even furry ones) or you need to bring along some big equipment, you might be considering towing with your Subaru.

Before you run out to buy a trailer hitch, take a look at some important Subaru towing tips and maximum tow capacities, and see which Subaru can tow the most weight:


2018 Subaru Crosstrek: 1,500 LBS

The Crosstrek is the smallest SUV in the lineup, but its surprisingly strong. This subcompact SUV was built like a tank, and it can tow 1,500 pounds when properly-equipped. It's a great choice for drivers who won't be towing often, and who won't get too close to the max weight rating.


2018 Subaru Forester: 1,500 LBS

While the Forester offers the same maximum towing capacity as the smaller Crosstrek, it's more versatile for overall cargo because of its larger interior. This is a great choice for drivers who don't need a ton of towing power, but frequently bring a ton of gear along for the ride.


2018 Subaru Outback: 2,700 LBS

The Subaru Outback is the current heavyweight champ of towing for production models. Its 2,700-pound tow rating is the same for both the 4-cyl and the 6-cyl engine option, and is surprising for its size. This powerful wagon is a great choice for drivers who need more power.


Upcoming 2019 Subaru Ascent: 5,000 LBS

If you know that you'll be needing to tow a lot of weight, you'll want to keep your eyes out for the upcoming 2019 Subaru Ascent, which Subaru says can tow up to 5,000 pounds. It's on our radar, but not yet in the showroom. If you can wait, though, this SUV is well worth it.
