Which used Subaru Outback estate should I buy?
When the Subaru Legacy Outback was new it looked pricey compared with the Audi A4 Allroad and Skoda Superb Estate 4x4. As a result, the Outback was never a big seller, and tracking down good used examples can be tricky.
Even when you do, your engine options are limited to a 147bhp 2.0-litre 'Boxer' diesel and a very thirsty 2.5-litre petrol. Neither is ideal, but in spite of the diesel’s relatively high emissions, it’s the one we’d choose.
We’d also recommend SX trim, which gives you 17in alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a reversing camera, and climate and cruise control.
