TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Subaru Outback is the equivalent of a good cross-trainer—offering satisfying on-road performance, modest trail capability, and enviable interior versatility and space, all with just a taste of luxury, too. The 2011 Volvo XC60 offers top in-car tech and luxury features, in a secure package that's big enough for small families.
