The 2019 Subaru Legacy is no thrill machine, but this under-the-radar mid-size sedan is hard to beat for its comfort, safety, and value.

Pros
Safety comes standard
Roomy, comfortable interior
All-season confidence
A lot of car for the money

Light on performance
Optional 6-cylinder guzzles fuel
Just average to look at
Rare on dealer lots

Car shoppers looking for a vehicle that can comfortably carry four or five passengers, in deep snowbelt territory, often see SUVs as the only way to get around. But the 2019 Subaru Legacy proves that this midsize sedan has what it takes to keep up when the roads get nasty.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Standard active driver assist features

Cons
Engines less powerful compared to those of rivals

The 2019 Subaru Outback makes a sensible crossover SUV alternative.

Pros
Like a crossover SUV, but better
No shortage of safety gear
Spacious, refined interior
Rides and handles well
Better off-road than many SUVs

Cons
6-cylinder engine guzzles fuel…
… but 4-cylinder can feel pokey
Starting to show its age here and there
Touring needs roof rack cross bars

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
Roomy seats and great visibility
Class-leading amount of cargo space
Impressive set of standard tech and safety features

Cons
Acceleration is slow with the base engine
Throttle for base engine is overly sensitive at times

By:

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
