Subaru Outback

Spun off the Subaru Legacy mid-size sedan platform, the Outback started as a four-door, five-passenger wagon with increased ground clearance and more rugged styling. Subaru has had sales success with the Outback, first marketing it as a smaller alternative to sport utility vehicles or crossovers. Later versions grew closer in size to crossovers. Like all modern Subarus except the BRZ, the Outback is only offered in all-wheel drive; the system is best for inclement weather and light off-roading. For a time, Subaru also offered a different model, called the Outback Sport, based on the smaller Impreza sedan. The Outback is built at Subaru’s Lafayette, Ind., manufacturing facility.
