The 2013 Subaru Outback
With improved safety, better handling, and more leg and head room, the 2013 Subaru Outback shows once again why it’s so highly recommended by consumers.
Maybe the most attractive component of the Outback is the price. One of its closest competitors is the Volvo XC60 which starts at $39,995. The Outback on the other hand, has a base price of just $28,495.
Not only is the price more appealing, but unlike some of the other vehicles in its class, the Outback has a full-time all-wheel drive system. Not surprisingly, it won a Top Safety Pick Award from the IIHS and with a new system called Eyesight which detects potential obstacles on the road; it is even safer than last year’s model.
The Outback’s fuel efficiency still isn’t exceptional, but it’s improved from 9.8 L/100km last year to 9.1 L/100km for the 2013 model. In addition, the Outback’s fuel economy is still better than the XC60 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
Finally, this vehicle has a nice, smooth looking exterior and is great in all-weather conditions. The new Subaru Outback should once again be one of the top SUV’s on the market in 2013.
