16. 2018 Subaru Outback (8.7 inches)
While the Crosstrek is a relatively new model in the lineup, this Outback represents evolution of Subaru’s most beloved model. Subaru markets this car as a go-anywhere vehicle, and with 8.7 inches of clearance, it is well-suited to substantiate that claim. With a 175 horsepower four-cylinder and a 256 horsepower 6-cylinder, the Outback offers more space and hustle over the Crosstrek.
Subaru has refined the Outback for 2018, which should help further cement the company’s reputation for owner satisfaction. Starting at $25,895, the Outback is a solid choice for buyers who want to hit the slopes this winter.
