There are very few wagons in the
market, even fewer are imports,
available with manual transmission and
have 4 wheel drive. Only two are
affordable - Outback and Legacy.
Therefore, Outback is obviously the
best and at the same time the second
worst in its class.
- very low torque at low RPM - the flip
side of inflated max power at high RPM.
They are fixing the numbers at the
expense of actual performance.
- clutch glazes in no time - very poor
material and design
- interior material is poor
- mexican assembly and even some part
Body shape - wagon
4 wheel drive
High road clearance
Increase torque at low RPM, even if it
comes at the expense of max power at
high RPM - nobody drives at that RPM
