I owned a ML350 of very questionable quality and performance and two discoverys before. I pick an Outback looking for a smaller confortable car paying almost one third of the money I paid for the other cars. A big deal! Great off road and fast in road, a lot of space in a not-too-big car.
A fast car, almost a sport car undercover in a family car. Good in both off and on road.
Maybe some more space to put change and small stuff.
