The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Subaru Outback is more refined than ever and features the same, remarkable off-road capability. The 2020 Toyota 4Runner is a solid choice for weekend warriors made better this year thanks to more safety gear, but pavement-pounders should look elsewhere.
