2012 Subaru Outback Car Review: Long-Term Loan - Part 1
Subaru is the brand that arguably kicked off the whole crossover thing, and it's the Outback that was the first of its mainline crossover models. That first car, launched in 1995 looked like a sneaker and continued to do so until the late 1990s. It was well built, solid and reliable and most owners simply traded into the newer iterations when they were released. That loyalty is most likely being tested with the current variant of the Outback, which has lost its rugged and lovable looks and become more staid and conservative looking.
That said, it's just as comfortable as ever, has good ground clearance for driving on rough-ish dirt roads and is very, very well appointed. As it arrived in the garage our new Outback came fitted with EyeSight (the Outback is premiering this technology) and this alerts the driver to things like lane wander and if they're too close to the car in front. In terms of pricing, the Outback 3.6R Premium lists for $55,990; the engine is a 3.6-litre boxer six-cylinder making 191kW and 350Nm, six-speed auto only, and fuel consumption is a claimed 10.3L/100km.
In terms of what we'll be doing with this vehicle, well, we've had a towbar and brake controller fitted to it, so it'll be doing a fair bit of trailer towing in our caravanning publication (Australian Caravan + RV). - Isaac Bober, NRMA Motoring Editor

2011 Peugeot 508 Touring Car Review - Long-Term Loan - Part 1
We were impressed with the Peugeot at its launch back in 2011, and impressed enough with it to make it a finalist in the 2011 Australia's Best Cars Awards. But, with the shaky reputation of French cars for reliability we wanted to see how one of our favourite cars of 2011 could handle being subjected to 'family life'.
Since I'm the only member of the team with 'dependents' I've taken the biggest, most comfortable member of our long-term fleet. And it's already had to handle a few runs up and down the Blue Mountains, swallow box-loads of IKEA furniture, and ferry two kids to and from childcare; and despite not being the roomiest of wagons it's done it all with ease.
Being the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel (which makes 120kW and 340Nm) it's pretty good on fuel with a combined cycle of 6.1L/100km. In terms of standard features, the 508 Touring is loaded to gunwales with the sort of kit, like a panoramic glass sunroof and sat-nav, that you usually have to pay extra for. Indeed, its list price of $45,590 makes this an incredibly attractive car. - Isaac Bober, NRMA Motoring Editor

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.

Subaru Outback review - CarBuyer
Read the full review here: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/subaru/outback/estate/review
The Outback is a well built practical estate with impressive amounts of standard equipment and chunky looks. Subaru have provided large, accessible rear seats and the higher suspension provides a smooth ride over bumps but as a result suffers from excessive body roll in corners. There are three engines to choose from including Subaru's diesel boxer engine and a powerful 3.6-litre V6 petrol. Four wheel drive provides impressive grip but affects fuel consumption. The Outback is comfy and practical but feels aggricultural to drive.
