While vehicles in this segment ideally need to be a jack-of-all-trades as part of the brief, few suit the urban dweller as comprehensively as the Subaru Outback.

2020 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium review

Many alternatives have gone by the by. All-wheel-drive wagons with slight bush-ability are thin on the ground these days.

We bought our Outback at end of 2015, and our first main concern was seat height as we are both elderly. We previously owned a Statesman and also a small Mazda 2 hatch and while they were good for a long time, we found them hard to get in and out of.
