2020 Subaru Outback First Drive : Polishing the Diamond

For Subaru, that role is played by the Outback. For sure, the Crosstrek and the Forester are important players in the company’s lineup as well, but the Outback is the heart of the team, the one with the C on the jersey.

If there’s one model Subaru can’t afford to mess up, in other words, this is it.
