The Subaru Outback sounds like an Aussie car and that’s probably what makes it so popular here. In this video, Jenny reviews the latest 2019 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium.

The Outback 2.5i Premium, is a mid-range model, sitting between the standard 2.5i and sporty 3.6.

This AWD Subaru wagon is a capable off-roader with great grip; a good family car with character and plenty of space; a comfortable cruiser with a high-quality interior and a leader in terms of safety.

Add to this the famed reliability and the Outback is one of the best choices in its class and price range. It will surely pose some good competition to the likes of the Commodore Tourer wagon and the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.
