With weather-conquering all-wheel drive, an impressive 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and ample storage for a camping trip, the Outback is a do-it-all wagon. This redesigned model is markedly quieter and more fuel-efficient at cruising speeds than last year’s. One thing that (thankfully) didn’t change: the low step-in height lets your kids pile in without assistance. They’ll love the folding center armrest and separate rear climate control, while you’ll appreciate the standard backup camera. Families who plan to tow a boat or a trailer might consider the six-cylinder engine. It’s part of the $33,845 3.6R Limited package, which includes a camera-based EyeSight system that scans for potential collisions and automatically applies the brakes when needed.
