Eric's Autos: 2020 Subaru Outback
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.
Because it's available with a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that's nearly as powerful as the engine in the high-performance WRX.
But with almost twice the ground clearance.
So you'll still get where you're going -- and back.
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.
These two attributes make it unlike other crossovers in its class -- which offer all-wheel drive as an extra-cost option and aren't available with a high-performance engine.
Prices start at $26,645.
