What's the used Subaru Outback estate like?
Four-wheel drive is standard across the range. And while many owners will never go far off road, the Outback is actually better at coping with rough terrain than most proper SUVs.
Sadly, the Outback is nowhere near as impressive on road. The steering is vague and the ride is far too firm and unforgiving (a surprise, given the long-travel suspension).
The plain, mostly plastic interior is another disappointment. However, you do get a big boot, and standard equipment is decent.
