2016 Subaru Outback

Students and teachers who are going for a more rugged and outdoorsy aesthetic might consider the 2016 Subaru Outback as an alternative to the usual SUVs and hatchbacks. And it’s not just the Outback’s looks that convey an adventurous personality; this wagon’s performance backs it up.

The 2016 Subaru Outback has an upscale interior that comfortably seats five passengers, along with one of the most spacious cargo areas in the class. Buyers have the choice of two engines: the 175-horsepower four-cylinder base engine, which provides competitive gas mileage for a wagon, and the available 256-horsepower V6, which provides strong acceleration.

The Outback, like all Subarus, comes standard with all-wheel drive, which improves its all-weather capabilities. The Outback also comes with an integrated roof rack, which is perfect for boosting cargo capacity at moving time or carrying around your sports equipment on the weekends. Great safety ratings are par for the course with the Outback, and a rearview camera is included on even the base model.
