The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.2
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 Volvo XC70 brings an extra dose of real off-road ruggedness to a wagon that’s comfortable and spacious but not all that sporty.
