When it comes to exterior of the 2020 Subaru Outback, this model has been known for perfectly combining the style of a wagon and the style of a crossover. This trend should continue for the year 2020. It should also be available in four trim levels – base, Premium, Limited and Touring. This SUV will probably keep the same dimensions as its predecessor, but it will improve a lot of other body features. The fans will notice its recognizable hexagonal grille in the front part. The base model should stand on standard 17-inch wheels. It has been said that some new color choices could be available as well. This model will also improve its towing capacity to at least 2,700 pounds and boost its off-road performance thanks to its X-mode.
The interior of the 2020 Subaru Outback will show lots of details borrowed from it cousin the Legacy. Its spacious cabin will perfectly accommodate up to five passengers on its comfortable seats that will be covered in leather in those higher trim levels. Also, those higher trims will get heated front seats and the driver’s seat will be manually adjustable in six ways. You will get a lot of cargo space as well. When it comes to technology, the base model will provide a 6.5-inch infotainment touch-screen while the Premium trim will offer an 8.0-inch one. You should expect some of the latest features and connectivity options such as navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The new Outback will also upgrade its safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, airbags, a rearview camera, blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist and other thanks to its Eye Sight.
Two engine choices should be offered under the hood of the 2020 Subaru Outback. The first one uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers the output of 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. The other one comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that hits 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be mated to a CVT so a manual transmission won’t be available. It also gets an all-wheel drive system.
