The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
With good performance and enviable safety, the 2008 Subaru Outback remains the top choice for families who value practicality but want a little more toughness. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
