Subaru has just brought in its revamped Outback with prices starting from €40,995.

There’s a new look inside and outside. The 2-litre diesel Boxer engine is, they say, more frugal and of course there is all-wheel drive.

Subaru have always claimed the Outback was the world’s first crossover as it combined the best of an estate and SUV.

Handling and ride have been improved.

As part of the revised cabin there is a new 7ins touchscreen infotainment and sat nav system. There’s also more boot room (up 4.5pc to 559 litres).

They also have what they call the EyeSight system which helps avert collisions.
