Subaru Outback 2016

The 2016 Subaru Outback range of configurations is currently priced from $14,980. Our most recent review of the 2016 Subaru Outback resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time: The addition of a strong yet sophisticated diesel gives the large, practical and good looking Outback a real boost as a long-distance family rig that eschews the often compromised dynamics of the traditional diesel SUV wagon.

  • Best replacement for a Liberty Wagon?

    With 2000 kg towing capacity the Discovery Sport has the towing capacity you want, it's more than the CX-5, and it's not limited to 80 km/h like the Subaru is. That's a big plus. The only criticisms we've heard about are some niggling interior fit and finish issues, and one or two electrical gremlins. The Land Rover also has more ground clearance than the CX-5 and a traction control system better set up for actual off-road work.

    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.
