4.6 (Excellent)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Subaru Outback OVERVIEW

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.
