Subarus are synonymous with the outdoors, LL Bean and rugged living. The Outback received a mid-cycle refresh in 2013, laying the groundwork for attributes that carry over into the new 2014 Subaru Forester. But what separates the Outback from the contenders is its distinctively wagon-esque physique.

What's New for 2014

The EyeSight driver assistance system is now standard on the 2.5i Premium model, which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning. Adaptive control is standard on continuously variable transmission (CVT) models.

CarsDirect Tip

The Outback offers a more grounded driving experience and is also more fun to drive than your average SUV. Unless you're on a tight budget, we think the 2.5i Premium offers excellent value for near-luxury features like leather and the Harman Kardon sound system.
