The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Volvo V70 and XC70 wagons offer lots of practicality and safety, providing buyers with an alternative to regular mid-size SUVs. 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.
