Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The Parkers Verdict: Subaru OutbackThe Parkers Verdict

Overall, we’re very impressed with how the Outback has evolved, and how it simply feels fit for purpose. It shrugs off all that the worst conditions UK roads will throw at it, and comes back for me. It's rough, tough, and good to drive.

The Outback is also a worthy flagship for Subaru, and although it hasn't sold in huge numbers in the UK (Subaru reckons it's less than 1,000 a year) it’s an important car. But more than that, it's a grower – the more time you spend in it, the more you'll learn to respect its wide range of abilities.
