2004 Subaru Outback REVIEW logo 4/5/2017

Con: Not as capable as an SUV in terms of pure off-road capability or interior volume, four-cylinder models lack power, upscale models are expensive.

Pro: Standard all-wheel drive, comfortable ride on pavement, capable performance on dirt, well-appointed interior.

Edmunds Say: A versatile alternative to mainstream wagons and crossover SUVs.

What’s New: Subaru commemorates 35 years of selling cars in the U.S. by offering a 35th anniversary special edition of the Outback H6-3.0 wagon, though this amounts to little more than a new alloy wheel design and a fender-mounted badge. Red Burl interior trim is new for the Outback this year, and six-cylinder models get restyled 16-inch wheels. L.L. Bean and Limited models get a new brown leather covering on the shifter handle, brake handle and steering wheel.
