Someone shopping for a new car in America has roughly 350 models to choose from. Subaru’s Outback, still weird and wonderful after 23 years, outperforms more than 90 percent of them at dealerships.
The Outback is no longer the esoteric, acquired taste of ski bums and Seattleites. With 183,000 purchased in the U.S. last year, the stately Subaru is about as mainstream as a machine gets these days. Oddly, however, an industry that thrives on imitation has failed to create anything remotely similar.
