As a resident of Colorado, Family contributor Courtney Messenbaugh sees Subarus all the time; they’re a vehicular fixture in her state. In her test drive of the 2012 Outback, Courtney was surprised by how much space is inside this five-seat wagon, especially in the backseat. While the Outback doesn’t sport any wood paneling found on wagons of the past, it does have a low step-in height and easy-to-open doors for kids.
