Asked by Glenn
I am thinking of buying a new car next year and want a station wagon. I'm keen on the Subaru Outback Premium but never see it reviewed, so wonder what you think. I'm also considering the Mazda6 wagon and Volkswagen Passat, so which is the best? I like the look of the Outback but am a novice when it comes to the features and mechanics.

You are choosing from a good line-up as all three of your contenders get The Tick from me. My personal ranking puts the Passat ahead of the Outback but there is no reason not to go ahead with the Subaru.
