Driving a car is a very different experience when you have a family. Where you once used to roll down the windows and sing along to your favorite hits on the radio, you now split your time between distributing snacks to your passengers and butting in between arguments in an attempt to keep the peace. That’s enough to deal with on its own, but when you’re driving it’s just a lot of added distraction.

Here’s something that will make the whole process much less painful. U.S. News & World Report recently named the 2016 Subaru Outback to its list of 2016 Best Cars for Families. Lester Glenn Subaru is proud to report that the model was named the Best Wagon for Families in the annual awards.

To arrive at its list of winners, U.S. News & World Report tried out 256 vehicles and ultimately selected winners across 21 key categories. Award recipients were recognized as those vehicles that offer the best combination of positive reviews by professional auto critics, reliability and safety ratings, spaciousness, and family-friendly features.

Drivers in Lakehurst are sure to love the 2016 Subaru Outlander for its adventurous spirit and can-do capabilities as well as its safety ratings plus spacious cabin and cargo area. Powering this model is the SUBARU BOXER® engine, which lays horizontally within the vehicle to provide a lower center of gravity, stronger balance, and enhanced steering and handling. Other key features include the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, which sends power to all wheels at the same time to enable maximum traction no matter the terrain or weather conditions.

Contact a Subaru dealer to schedule your test drive and see whether the 2016 Subaru Outback or another 2016 Subaru model is right for you and your family.
