Question Husband VS Wife (Car)

So my wife and I are looking at getting a new car. We are replacing her Rav4 with a Subaru, but we cant agree on what Subaru. Itís between the Subaru Outback and Subaru Forester. Iím not gonna say who likes what one. Iím here to see what you think. The Forester is shorter in length but taller in headroom. The outback is longer in length but shorter in height. So the outback has more floor cargo space but the Forester has more height cargo space. We will need to fit a Great Dane (140 lbs) and a German Shepherd (65 lbs) inside the car. We have already gone to the dealership and tested this and both work with the seats down but the outback works with the seats up or down. Anyways, lets see what you like better.

Forester. In all likelihood, our next car will be a Forester as well (currently working with two sedans). I'm not a huge fan out the wagon-type cars, but my future in-laws just got an Outback and they love it. The longer space in the Outback can be really nice with multiple dogs -- they have two medium/large dogs, and when we visit, it accommodates our GSD just fine too.

LOL, I looked at the Subarus a while back - decided against them as there wasn't enough room to fit two big crates in the back. (GSD & Rotti/X size crates).

Exactly, way too small, even when we only had two Gsds plus whatever gear, no fun trying to pack up.

With just one GSD it has the space for a full size crate while keeping good gas mileage and great in snow since I'm in a snow belt area.
