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. Subarus have fared well in our reliability surveys—except for the Ascent. Subaru’s first-ever electric vehicle, the Solterra compact SUV, was just announced, and features a two-motor electric powertrain to form a symmetrical all-wheel-drive system that promised 215 horsepower. The automaker estimates the range to be more than 222 miles.
