The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Subaru Outback is as much of a tough, safe family wagon as ever; but this year, its brawn doesn't come with as much compromise in comfort and quiet. The 2015 Volvo XC70 remains a sturdy wagon in crossover clothing, a tough and utilitarian vehicle with a new and fuel-efficient powertrain this year (for front-wheel-drive models only).
