Vehicles with J.D. Power Quality Ratings
The Subaru Outback is a midsize crossover SUV that runs against the conventional wisdom that these "soft-roaders" never venture off the pavement. To the contrary, you're far more likely to see an Outback covered in mud than a Toyota Venza, Chevrolet Equinox, or Ford Edge. Since its introduction in the late 1990s, the Subaru Outback's capability appealed to outdoorsy types, and the 2015 Outback ups the ante with an all-wheel-drive system enhanced with X-Mode for better off-road stability, and expanded availability of the latest version of EyeSight, Subaru's collision-mitigation and active-cruise technology. It's all wrapped up in sharper SUV-wagon styling that hides a roomier interior, a combination that's sure to keep the 2015 Outback as muddy as ever.
