Unless you really need three rows of seats, the 2018 Subaru Outback is the sensible SUV alternative.

Pros
Swiss Army knife utility
More refined than ever
Lots of safety tech
Comfortable, roomy interior
Good ride and handling

Cons
Optional 6-cylinder is thirsty
Short on high-end luxuries
No EyeSight on base Outback
Touring’s roof rack lacks cross bars

The 2018 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 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Spacious seats
Lots of cargo space

Cons
Unimpressive base engine

By:

The 2018 Subaru Outback receives a variety of changes. On the outside, the grille and front and rear fascias have been updated for a more aggressive look, and there are new headlights that feature LED daytime running lights. A new side mirror design reduces interior cabin noise. On the inside, the Outback features a new infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a new center console and steering wheel design. Premium and higher trims receive contrast stitching on the doors, seats and dash.

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

CONS
Gas and brake pedal feel make it hard to drive four-cylinder smoothly
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine

The 2019 Lincoln MKC has a new grille that matches the one seen on brand's latest vehicles such as the Continental and Navigator. It's an improvement and gives the MKC a classier look. But the rest of the 2019 MKC is unchanged, which means it has some issues that prevent it from being a top contender in the premium crossover SUV segment.

Pros
More standard features than many of its competitors
Comfortable and quiet ride on the highway

Cons
Some interior materials look cheap considering the price point
Slower-than-average acceleration from either available engine
Some common driver safety aids only available on the top trim levels
Smaller back seat and cargo area compared to many competitors

User-friendly infotainment system

By:

Pros
Quality interior
Refined road manners
New higher-end look
Easy to use Sync 3
Fun, but overpowered optional 2.3-liter turbo-4

Cons
Fuel efficiency leaves us wanting
Could use more standard advanced safety tech
Small rear seat
