The Subaru Outback may be the Ultimate Adventuremobile for City Dwellers, it’s a darn good real estate car – that allows for a bit of adventuring, too.
My previous car was a black Subaru Outback. My new one is a Subaru Outback; it just works for how I live my life.
Why I chose a Subaru as my real estate car. (twice!)
- It goes anywhere and everywhere I need it to go.
- 8.7 inches of clearance is the same as my Honda Pilot.
- Getting in doesn’t require climbing up – good for when I’m tired and sore from a long bike ride, good for my clients who may have trouble climbing into a high SUV. (this is a big one)
- Good enough gas mileage – usually between 26 and 29 mpg.
- The back seat is huge – a major consideration when thinking about driving clients around showing property. I had six-foot tall client in the back seat over the weekend and he said he had “plenty of room.” Just yesterday, I had a 6’4 guy in the back seat who was comfortable. Comfortable clients are happier clients.
- Subaru fits my personality – functional, practical, reasonable. (but with the ability to have a bit more fun than those words typically connote)
- Just enough buttons and gadgets to keep my undiagnosed ADD in check.
- My bike rack fits easily on the roof racks.
- It’s a wagon. I love wagons. My car gets very neat and tidy with a quick putting-down, shoving-stuff, putting-up of the back seats (which lay flat, too!)
The Subaru Outback is a great car for real estate, and for a bit of adventuring.
This was the day after the big snow we just had; my daughter and I went sledding. Without the Subie, we’d not have been able to go sledding – and wouldn’t have had that memory.

What I don’t like about my Subie
Real estate signs don’t fit in the trunk. That sucks.
I’m a Realtor. Have questions about the Charlottesville – Albemarle area real estate market? I’m here to help.
