Having been completely redesigned just last year, the 2016 Outback gains some additional equipment. The optional Subaru Starlink system adds two packages of connected car applications, adding functionality such as automatic crash notification and stolen vehicle recovery, along with Internet-connected apps such as Stitcher. The steering has been retuned for better feel, and Limited models get retuned shock absorbers for a smoother ride. Safety features on the Outback now include optional lane departure intervention.

Car and Driver –
What people love about the Outback is its ability to transform itself into exactly whatever they require for a given scenario. Need it to be a capable all-weather transport? No problem. Need a roomy wagon for kids and all their stuff? Check. There is a choice of a 175-hp 2.5-liter flat-four or 256-hp 3.6-liter flat-six, both with a CVT. And of course, all-wheel drive is standard, too, offering sure-footed grip and handling. All that’s missing is a manual transmission for the 3.6-liter. Read More >>
