A raised station wagon will always be better than an SUV. Is that really true?

Driving this armoured station wagon feels like just that: something high off the ground and not particularly athletic in the corners, but incredibly smooth over beaten roads and potholes. The amount of travel in the suspension system is impressive as it simply takes the hits. I drove this thing during a generous portion of snowfall and the thing never flinched.

Subaru is sometimes seen as the black sheep of the automotive industry. It’s an underdog, if you will. It builds atypical, all-wheel-drive vehicles, powered by Boxer-style engines, and these cars cater more to adventurous, outdoorsy types, than to sleek, suit-and-tie entrepreneurs.
