Now in its fifth generation, the 2015 Subaru Outback is a standalone model (there is no Liberty wagon anymore) and it promises to be the best version yet...

Skoda Octavia Scout 135TDI v Subaru Outback 2.0D Premium : Comparison Review

The Skoda Octavia Scout arrived in March aiming to steal a slice of the all-terrain, all-wheel-drive premium wagon pie from Subaru Outback. A niche pie that the Outback has and continues to own in Australia, as demonstrated by recent record-breaking sales - despite the less-than-threatening opposition presented by rivals such as, well, Skoda’s own Superb 4x4 Outdoor...

2015 Subaru Outback 3.6r Premium Review

A wonderfully fantastic car! On the road I consistently achieve 28+ mpg and whilst on my most recent road trip from Anchorage Alaska to Minnesota and back, (8,200 miles) I was able to squeak 30+.or more from a U.S. on several occasions...

The interior is big, the seats are comfortable, the boot is large, and with the back seats down can swallow large loads. Long drives are done in a smooth, quiet manner - with the Subie chewing up the miles easily and surprisingly frugally...
