Wasn't meant to be a wise crack, it just sounds like a minivan would suit your needs nicely.

Does anyone have a picture of the front of the new SAP in the Brilliant Brown? The only pictures I have seen with that color are from the Japanese or European one that is currently on sale. I would love to see what the new grill looks like and the darkened headlights with the large foglights.

Best that I could find so far: http://www.cars101.com/subaru/outbac...13photos1.html

And, yes, the pictures are terrible. You'd think they were taken in the 90's.

Thanks for the link, I have been using that one for pictures and I wonder if the second one that doesn't show up for me is a full on front view and my computer is just teasing me.

My wife and I just ordered one in that color combo and I am very interested in how it looks

Before we ordered, we did get to test drive the new 2.5i in a limited to compare it to my moms 2012 (which we used for 4 weeks) and I LOVE the difference in handling on it and the responsiveness of the engine transmission combo. It won't ever be a WRX, but it is exactly what I am looking for in a more relaxed larger Subaru.

Sorry, was too busy to post description. My dealership just got in a 2013 Outback and I just wanted to show off my pic of the headlight. I like it. More should be arriving soon. I think the 2013 Legacy 3.6R will be the nicest one yet with the new front fascia, headlights, and improved suspension.

Supposed to be less body roll and a little firmer ride. Looked at one today and the rear sway still looked really thin - I had figured that was the major change, but apparently not! Maybe stiffer springs?

^^^ Not sure about all the changes that went in but the ride is definitely better than '12 - less body roll, better road feel, stiffer ride. The new FB engine + CVT (v2.0) combo is a little bit peppier than '12.

cars101 says: "new upgraded chassis and suspension. All models get improved ride, handling and steering due to upgraded body structure with stiffer front strut mounting points and rear frame rails, upgraded suspension that includes a larger rear sway bar, slightly stiffer rear springs and bushings, and upgraded steering. The result is a more responsive car with improved handling and steering and less body sway."
