The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
5.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
Unless you really need three rows of seats, the 2018 Subaru Outback is the sensible SUV alternative. If you’re going off-road, consider the 2018 Toyota 4Runner. It’s a trusty tool for any kind of expedition, but it’s not so civilized around town.
