Wagon - Cross-trek
From its beginnings as an add on to the legacy line, to being known as its own model. The Outback has come a long way from where it started and what it started.
With a face like this, there wasn't much of a need for improvement. But when it comes to a refresh, Subaru hit it on the nose. Adding in a grille that is the centre of attention and making the fog lights more noticeable. But Subaru could have changed the head lights to make them less of an over statement. Light bands could be better with this design.
Out back Subaru has still forgotten that the rear bumper is way too big. This would be more fitting on a truck, than a cross-trek. Next they should smooth out the edges and lose the reflectors.
With one of the originals still kicking around, I guess the cross-trek segment is here to stay.
