Comparing the OB to the Aviator is most likely not a fair comparison. The Lincoln will win hands down.base price is $51k, the black label is almost $78k. Also it's a 7 passenger. Fair competition for the outback?
My apologies the website was confusing with the way they post it. It’s talking about the category but makes it look like it won when I was reading it. I was looking at motortrend.com/awardsWhere are you seeing that? It still says the three are finalists and that they'll unveil winners on the 18th to me. Did they momentarily accidentally reveal early?
NIce. I'd like to see that. Does it require a CR subscription? Mine ran out some time ago.The February 2020 Consumer Reports (the latest issue that i see electronically) lists the “Outback Limited XT” as the top SUV amongst the 28 SUVs of all types. It is in a chart near the very back of the publication. (The Forester is a close second.)
On a previous page list a tiny “road report” with an abridged list of pros and cons in a side by side with another random car (not an SUV.)
I’d post the chart here but I’m not sure if that is kosher according to forum rules.
I subscribe to Apple News+ and noticed the new issue today. But I believe it does require a subscription either directly or via some emagizine service. It’s not worth paying for just for this. Here is a snippet of the chart (this sould be fair-use..but I’ll take down if people think otherwise.)NIce. I'd like to see that. Does it require a CR subscription? Mine ran out some time ago.
Telluride is not listed in the chart on the February 2020 edition of the copy I have—which has mattresses on the cover. You may be looking at more complete information. I only have access to the print editions but you probally have access to the full site.I just checked online, I do have a subscription, and the Telluride rates out higher in the same mid size SUV class with an overall score of 91. The 2020 Outback is 2nd with the above 87.
Because it is a 3 row SUV that explains why it was not in the chart published in the latest February CR issue. They did not list 3 Row SUVs. So the Outback is king of the non-3 rows SUVs. ?The Kia Telluride is getting a lot of good reviews, and if I recall correctly, was named as Motor Trend's 2020 SUV of the year. It's a 3-row SUV, but is priced pretty reasonably, compared to other 3-row SUVs.
It's a 3.8 liter V-6, with a 5-speed auto. A fair amount bigger and heavier than an OB. The two-row Sorrento is more of a direct competitor, I suppose...
