The Subaru Outback has long been the most popular choice of cars for people who live in places that are horizontally and summer challenged.
In other words, places such as Colorado where the roads turns upwards and the snow falls and falls and falls.
The Subaru Outback has also been the best choice for the colder and higher climates because it offers exceptional value in a all-wheel-drive car that has plenty of ground clearance when the road turns rough or icy.
So how does the all new 2010 Outback stack up?
Does it still retain the title as the unofficial car of Colorado?
