The 2013 Outback is lengths and lengths ahead of the original Outback in 1994 as far as exterior design goes. It's more modern, has sharper lines, and looks more like a fun family utility vehicle than a boxy wagon. With that said, it still doesn't really grab your attention with a striking build, and we think that's okay. People don't buy Outbacks to stunt on their friends, they buy these cars because they're extremely functional vehicles. Besides, you don't want to have to worry about scratching your car when you're plowing through jungles, beaches or snowy trails.
