We agree that somehow it seems odd that the Outback wagon straddles the line between midsize and full-size cars, but it's how R.L. Polk organizes the segments. That said, two types of owners have the same good reason to continue buying them. The Outback is a fuel-efficient alternative to larger crossovers and SUVs. Whether a driver is looking for the added stability of all-wheel drive (AWD) in foul weather, or is someone with an active outdoor lifestyle and wants to get places a two-wheel-drive car just can't go, the Outback works. No carmaker has more experience with AWD than Subaru, and it shows. Available with a four-cylinder engine posting an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway, or a more powerful six-cylinder engine, Outback offers two performance/fuel-economy options.
