NEWS: Subaru Outback Alpine Road Trip
It's all going to go quiet for a week here on the blog, Facebook & Twitter for a week – sorry! The reason? Editor, Phil Royle is off on a 1,700-mile road trip to the French and Italian Alps, in one of the world's most under-rated cars – Subaru's superb Outback. The jacked-up Legacy-based model should be perfect for all the Alpine snow with its symmetrical four-wheel-drive and especially as its wearing Winter rubber – so we're looking forward to the hairpins especially. And the economical, but powerful Boxer diesel engine should prove perfect for the long road trip. As will the superbly comfortable and well-equipped interior. And we'll also be testing out Garmin's new Nuvi 3590 LMT sat-nav unit. Read all about the road trip in the next issue of Road, another cracking Subaru special, out later this month. And if you can't wait until then, did you catch the last Subaru special here? A bientot!
