Since its inception in 1995 as a trim level for the iconic Subaru Legacy Wagon, the Subaru Outback – now a distinct model – has defied categorization.

Sporty and compact crossovers have taken over the car industry today as the demand for crossovers has become hotter than ever. While the Honda CR-V has bumped the Civic and Accord — Honda’s best-selling cars — behind, the all-new 2017 Nissan Rogue has done the same to the Nissan Altima. People now prefer crossovers over sedans.

Crossovers are, in general, known for their chic and contemporary styling, excellent fuel efficiency, affordability, spaciousness, and technological advances and features.
