The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Subaru Outback isn’t especially swoopy or fast, and it hardly carries a luxe image. But with more interior refinement and new features, along with rutted-trail ability that sidelines tough-looking rivals, this Subaru will win more fans. The 2009 Toyota Venza adds another flavor to the crossover melting pot, but it's a mild one.
