The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Crosstour has a cloudy narrative: it wants to be a roomy alternative to a best-selling sedan, but doesn't net much more room for its less gainly look. The 2013 Subaru Outback is practical above all: it's capable in all kinds of conditions, and has great interior space and standard all-wheel drive.
