The Car Connection's Take

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Subaru Outback is a worthy competitor to many SUVs on capability alone—factor in price and it should be a no-brainer. The 2017 Volvo V60 wagon is practical and spacious, with some of the best seats in the business. Trust us—no really, trust us—this is just as capable as an SUV.
