Subaru’s Outback crossover fills the void between wagon and off-roader.

Subaru

The Subaru Outback started its life as a small-ish wagon back in the ‘90s. Built on the bones of the Subaru Legacy, the Outback has grown considerably over the last three decades. Now a crossover, the Outback gives Subaru customers a flat-four-powered ute that still scratches that wagon itch. This sixth-generation Outback came online for the 2020 model year and has recently tacked on the Wilderness Edition, which means some extra cladding, a mild lift, and all-terrain tires. Powering the Outback Wilderness is a 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four that sends 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque through a continuously variable transmission to a standard all-wheel-drive system.

In this episode of Quick Spin, Patrick Carone puts the Subaru Outback Wilderness through its paces, walks you around this Subaru, and highlights some of the model’s special features before taking you along on a real-time drive review. Joining the show, host Wesley Wren chats with Carone about the new Subaru Outback, its position in the marketplace, how it drives, and what makes this Subaru special.

Wesley Wren Wesley Wren has spent his entire life around cars, whether it’s dressing up as his father’s 1954 Ford for Halloween as a child, repairing cars in college or collecting frustrating pieces of history—and most things in between.
