The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.8

7.5

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2022 Subaru Forester rains value down on crossover-SUV drivers, and safety’s a very close second. The 2023 Subaru Outback sports a fresh look but delivers the same capability and reputation for safety. The 2022 Volvo S60 sedan balances grace with power.
