Is the Subaru Outback an SUV or a Station Wagon?

I have a hard time making a distinction between an SUV and a Station Wagon. Would you consider the Subaru Outback to be an SUV or station wagon?

The Subaru Outback currently has aspects of both a station wagon and an SUV. While it used to be considered a wagon, modern versions of the model are usually referred to as SUVs. Subaru themselves refer to the Subaru Outback as a mid-size crossover, so if you’re looking for an official answer, that’s probably the best you’ll get.
A brand-new 2022 Subaru Outback can cost as little as $28,000 or as much as $41,000 depending on the
