This Japanese manufacturer was always full of innovations. One of those is a model that is called Outback. The company applied completely new formula and nowadays we have completely new, very popular type of vehicle. It is based on Legacy sedan. It shares platform and many other characteristics, but on the other side, it features a station wagon body style and also higher ground clearance, which practically makes it a crossover. A completely new model came last year, based on the sixth-generation Legacy. Although it is still a very fresh model, some modifications were made already for 2016 year model, so we believe that 2017 Subaru Outback will also come with some novelties.
