Michael Perkins Test Drive Review:

Subaru kept the wagon vibes rolling while the rest of the world fell in love with SUVs and crossovers. And, although the 2020 Outback is technically a midsize crossover, one look will ...

I test drove this large SUV and was in awe at the handling. It is very smooth on the country roads and drives...
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage SE worse.
"Leather seats padded very well for a tall person weighing over 220 pounds. The seats are so well defined that you do not want to leave the drivers seat! If you could access television on front center screen you could relax and kick back on work breaks away from a noisy break station and have a restful nap."
Value Ranked 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage SE better.
"The cost is about 1/2 of what I compared. The center screen for electronics is small yet can connect to about the same Apple Play or Google Play. Radio is a fine one for such a small car. Lighting and basic features like wipers work very well and tires and suspension grip the road very well in the country."
