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

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

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

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

After becoming its own model instead of simply a trim level, the Outback took the crossover realm by storm. It offered a station wagon ride and cabin, with the off-road capabilities of a small SUV. Heading into 2015, the Outback continues its success as it enters a new generation.

What's New for 2015

The Subaru Outback is all-new for 2015, as it receives a new look, a slight power and fuel economy bump in its four-cylinder engine, an enhanced all-wheel-drive system, and increased cargo and passenger volume. Buyers will also enjoy a smoother and quieter ride, thanks to liquid-filled engine mounts and an acoustic windshield.

Choosing Your Subaru Outback

Lower trim levels are only available with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. In order to get the 256-horsepower 3.6-liter six-cylinder, you have to opt for the range-topping 3.6R Limited trim level.

Also limited for 2015 are transmission options -- your only choice is a CVT with a six-speed manual mode that you can control via paddle shifters. What this CVT does net you is good fuel economy, as the 2015 Outback 2.5i is rated at 25 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.

Where the Outback really excels is in its number of available trims and optional packages that add features like a moonrof, power rear gate, EyeSight, blind-spot monitoring, keyless start and navigation.

These are four trim levels to choose from on the Subaru Outback:

Subaru Outback

2.5i Premium

The 2.5i Premium takes the Outback to a slightly higher level of luxury with items like dual-zone climate control, the All-Weather Package, a 10-way power driver's seat, a steering wheel and gear shifter wrapped in leather, a seven-inch touchscreen display, hands-free texting, and a six-speaker audio system that includes SiriusXM capabilities. This comes at an extra $2,100 over the base 2.5i trim, and is also the lowest trim level that buyers can equip with the aforementioned option packages.

Subaru Outback

2.5i Limited

The 2.5i Limited is the most luxurious of the trims with the thrifty 2.5-liter engine. It comes at a cost of $3,000 over the 2.5i Premium, and adds in perforated-leather upholstery, 18-inch alloy rollers, a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system with a 576-watt amp, a 10-way power driver's seat with two-position memory, heated rear seats, blind-spot monitor with Lane Change Assist and Cross Traffic Alert, fog lights, wood-grain trim, and a power rear gate with memory.

Subaru Outback

3.6R Limited

Topping out the 2015 Outback range is the 3.6R Limited, which adds $3,000 to the price of the 2.5i Limited. With this entrance fee, buyers get all that the 2.5i Limited has to offer, plus the 3.6-liter engine with 256 horses, HID low-beam headlights, automatic height adjustment and chrome dual-exhaust tips.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're not on a strict budget, skip the base 2.5i, as the price tag is a little high for the features that it offers. For the extra $2,100 that the 2.5i premium costs, you are getting many more features that better suit this sort of vehicle and the ability to add on more features by selecting from the list of available packages.
