    Subaru's latest rugged estate is as practical as ever, but is now better to drive. The new Subaru Outback is a gentle development on a successful recipe. Its fitness for purpose is undeniable - making it perfect for rural mud pluggers and non fashion conscious urban families.


    The steering is better making for an effortless drive at moderate speeds and in town. With a new X-mode system that optimises electronics for off-roading, it makes light work of deep mud and grass ruts. Between this and the cavernous, comfortable interior, now enhanced with a new multimedia system, broad comfortable seats and lots of standard kit, it's easy to see why this car has a loyal fan base.
