Like the Forester I owned, the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium is a wagon design. It's a beefed-up version of the Subaru Liberty wagon, with greater ground clearance and slightly more off-road moxie.

HSV GTSR W1 vs Holden Commodore SS — Is it worth the money?

The HSV (Holden Special Vehicles) GTSR W1 is Australia's fastest and most powerful car ever built.
