05 Outback Best Buy "Wagon of the Year" says Money Magazine

Recommended Posts

Best Wagon:

Subaru Legacy/Outback

Subaru has remade these trusty wagons, adding room, refinement and sharper handling to the usual Subaru virtues of affordability and standard all-wheel drive. Their price nicely undercuts AWD wagons from the European luxury kings.

 

PERFORMANCE: Some of Subaru's championship rally-racing heritage has trickled down to these wagons, the Legacy 2.5 GT and Outback 2.5 XT models in particular. They're not just quick, they're sports-car fast, with turbocharged four-cylinder engines that whip them from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds.

 

DESIGN: The outgoing models were as stylish as a commune farmer in coveralls, but these remakes are more sculpted and dressy, fit for a night in town.

 

FUEL: The Subies haul like SUVs but are easier on gas.
