Subaru's Outback wagon is known for being able to get you there -- just not very quickly. It was one of the first high-riding wagons with all-wheel drive -- the automotive critter that's called a crossover today.

It was tenacious, rugged -- and slow.

Now it's quick.

What It Is

The Outback is a full-size wagon that comes standard with all-wheel drive and can be ordered with a high-performance turbocharged engine.
