But which one is it? Well actually it can play as both as the new Outback from Subaru gives us the best of both worlds in one car.
Sometime ago, the wagon vehicle in the US were held and rugged and aggressive vehicles. It is with the emergence of this car that the mindset and the way people view the wagon car has changed. The 2015 Subaru Outback is certainly the fault why many people want their wagons to be mid-sized and compact, allowing these types of vehicles to now be used by families and road trips, instead of utility purposes.

2015 Subaru Outback Exterior
It was five years ago that Subaru started to downsize its car making it less brawny and rugged looking. The end result is certainly the 2015 Subaru Outback and its stellar design. Despite the fact that the preceding vehicles which came before the Outback do not have any similar characteristics with the new 2015 model, they still hold a lot of things which bind them together.
What has been changed opposed to the previous models is that the exterior design of the 2015 Subaru Outback bares a much more assertive look. This has certainly been achieved by changing the functionality of the car and adding some new distinctive features to it. Generally speaking the design of the 2015 Outback can be described as being blunt and perhaps swept back, with a bit of an SUV feeling to it.
The things which have been changed include the shape or rather the curves of the hood and the grille which is placed more upright. The silhouette of the car has been changed as well, with the steeper front pillars, a different roofline and an added arch look to the roof of the vehicle. Changing the pillars has also resulted in backing the side mirrors a bit and the final result is that the Outback has gained a new SUV type of a look which really looks good for it.
The interior of the 2015 Subaru Outback actually brings us an evolution and not an update. This means that the makers have outdone themselves by not filling the car up with unnecessary things but have rather put in tremendous thought in it. Judge by the provided photos of the inside of the Subaru’s Outback which shows tremendous upgrade towards the past models.
The first thing that is more than apparent, and perhaps the best change that the inside of the Outback has gone though, is that the car’s inside panel does not feature the winged upright look but has been substituted with the squared-off design. The dashboard has the smooth organic curves to its look now with a high-end audio look in the middle part of it.
Depending on the trim of the vehicle, the quality of the seats and the comfort level is higher. This time Subaru has decided to make the comfort levels exclusive, and although the base model does include a dash of luxury to it, the higher trim levels truly make a difference.
