The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Subaru Legacy Outback boasts more toughness than most wagons and is a good, practical alternative to tall, ungainly SUVs. The 2009 Volvo XC70 combines the body of Volvo’s large V70 station wagon with more rugged styling cues and a taller stance—resulting in a more carlike alternative to mid-size sport-utility vehicles.
