wagon - cross-trek
Although the Legacy wagon and Outback models are basically the same vehicle, the Outback still retains some key features that set it apart from its wagon counterpart. Up front are a more rugged looking and better-equipped front end for handling more abuse while cruising the trails than that of the Legacy wagon. The Outback also features a durable plastic lip, which is painted in a light gray to help hide the appearance of scratches and is very useful at fending off scratches compared to just having a painted one-piece bumper. The new front lip also houses a new front air duct, which allows the engine breath easier. On the Outback model the fog lamps are pushed in so that when your trail riding those little stones have a harder time breaking the lense and they also add to the look of a more aggressive looking front end. Sitting next to the front grille are the very aggressive front lights, which feature a large main light housing that cuts out from the rest of the headlamps design. The situation of the front grille puts it out from the rest of the front end, which adds a sleek hood line to the front of the Outback that follows up from the edge of grille to the windshield.
Large great looking Subaru styled wheel wells house very large and sporty rims for the new Outback. Along the side the sleek look of the front disappears for a conventional look with side bumpers to help protect the sides of the Outback from scratching while you’re off the beaten path. From the edge of the front lights a bodyline flows perfectly along the bottom of the windows and onto the top of the rear taillights. On top of the rear sits a nicely designed wing, which adds a great look to the rear of the hatch. The rear tail lamps are a great look for the rear of the car, designed nicely with the bodylines and the rear of the car they seem to flow evenly with the rear of the Outback. A large rear bumper adds to the look of an off roader and gives the Outback that added touch of truck to the rear which gives it that small SUV feel rather than that of a wagon. Form front to back, the new Outback is one stylish off-roader built to handle most of what you can throw at it.
