When discussing all-wheel-drive vehicles, Subaru is unavoidable. But most of the brand's output either lacks style – there were decades of bland Outback wagons – or has too much of the wrong kind, for instance, its infamous car-truck combo, the BRAT. This luxurious, pricey, aerodynamic grand tourer breaks the mold. Though competitive all-wheel-drive sports cars like the Mitsubishi 3000GT were faster and more sophisticated, this one is more sleek and less adolescent, and thus, our favorite of the breed.
