COMPETITOR.COM: SUBARU OUTBACK IS “BEST” ACTIVE LEFESTYLE VEHICLE EVERYWHERE BUT THE SOUTHEAST US. The “Best of Competitor.com 2016” results by Compeitor.com was released at the end of January 2017. Annually the magazine polls readers and followers of social media to choose their favorites in multiple categories. The ‘winners’ are posted by the publication’s distribution regions: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southeast, South, Southwest, Mountain West, Northwest, and Pacific West.
Categories include best:
Subaru Outback kicked every vehicle’s butt in each region but one; Jeep Wrangler was the only other vehicle to be named in this category, in the Southeast.
In the Midwest region Chicago dominated the location of selected winners where a location was designated; in the South, it was Fort Worth and other Texas towns, and in the Pacific West, California spots were mostly awarded. Colorado held most honors in the Mountain West, and Seattle and other Washington state cities did this in the Northwest. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions showed greater diversity of winner locations.
It’s bit discouraging when one city or area in an entire region has garnered most votes because a high population of runners reside there. And you don’t. But if you plan to visit, the results pf the voting can act as a guide if you’re hoping to get in sport-related shopping, therapy, or activity.
Of most value to some might be names of highly regarded trainers, rehab centers, and sports medicine doctors and therapists. These types of recommendations can be difficult to find and it might be something worth the travel.
