When Subaru invited us to come check out the new 2013 Outback and experience the lifestyle of the typical Subaru consumer, we knew we were in for a good time. After all, the company's entire ideals are based around adventure, so plenty of outdoor activities lied ahead. One of those activities involved our first time going hang gliding. With that said, our favorite part of the trip did not have anything to do with those activities. We enjoyed getting behind the wheel of the Outback on the beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina and testing the all-wheel drive capabilities as hard as we could. As the slogan "Confidence in Motion" implies, there wasn't a time when the tires seemed to be in a compromising situation.
Subaru's AWD is nothing new, though. We were able to experience a plethora of new technological features in the car that assist and ensure safer driving. Things like adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning are a first in non-luxury production cars. Hit the next few slides to see how we felt about the rest of the car in 8 Reasons Why the 2013 Subaru Outback Is Perfect for Active Lifestyles.
