TCC’s Bottom Line
Like any all-around athlete, the 2012 Subaru Outback blends capable performance and rewarding handling, surprising interior volume and great versatility, with versatility and enough high-end options to keep most buyers quite happy. The 2012 Volvo XC70 crossover offers safety and wagon-based practicality; it's a useful alternative to taller, blockier crossovers and sport-utility vehicles.
