Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cadillac makes several small changes to the 2020 XT4, which mainly include new standard and optional features as well as small design tweaks. All models now have automated emergency braking, forward-collision warning, front pedestrian detection, and a safety seat alert. The entire lineup receives a revised shifter, enhanced infotainment rotary controller, and new metallic paint colors (Silver Dust and Garnet). Likewise, the top two trims add a standard hands-free liftgate and rear pedestrian detection.

Pros
Expressive design, ample cargo and passenger space, quiet and refined engine.

Cons
Subpar cabin quality, ride should be smoother, not the best deal.

Pros
Like a crossover SUV, but better
No shortage of safety gear
Spacious, refined interior

The 2019 Subaru Outback ranked #3 in Wagons. Currently the Subaru Outback has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 42 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive

The 2019 Subaru Outback is both wagon and SUV. It has the profile of a wagon, yet its traction-enhancing all-wheel-drive system and extra ground clearance make it more capable off-road than most other SUVs. Like other modern Subarus, it's also packed with the latest safety features.Subaru's EyeSight driver assist suite is now standard on all Outbacks.Base 2.5i trim gets additional USB ports.

PROS
Spacious and comfortable cabin
Roof and cargo-loading heights are lower than those of most SUVs
Excellent visibility in all directions
Off-road ability is above average

CONS
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine
Sensitive gas pedal at low speeds
Modest handling capabilities
