This Japanese automaker has long been synonymous with unpretentious, practical, and affordable all-wheel-drive vehicles. Subarus have done well in our testing, thanks to roomy interiors, easy access, great visibility, intuitive controls, good fuel economy, and a comfortable ride. Another welcome feature is the EyeSight suite of advanced safety features. Subarus have fared well in our reliability surveys—except for the Ascent and WRX. The model line has been reinvigorated with the impressive updated Legacy and Outback.
