The All New 2020 Subaru Outback

2020 Subaru Outback - Versatility and Ruggedness with Classy Looks
The redesign process that gives us the 2020 Subaru Outback has improved almost every major component of the new line-up - while the subtle changes to the exterior make sure that Japanese automaker's improved signature SUV stays recognizable, the cabin, the powertrain, even the well-known, reliable and stable Subaru Global Platform have been modified to create a more sophisticated, much more versatile version of the 2019 Subaru Outback.

New Interior & Cabin Technology

Features of the Redesigned Outback Interior and Cabin Tech
The cabin impresses with the quality of the materials used as well as with the ample range of tech features. The sound-insulated glass used for the windshield and for the front door windows, combined with other special materials used on the interior reduce the amount of sound that penetrates the cabin from outside.
The cabin redesign has resulted in a reconfigured seating space for comfortable travelling in the front as well as in the back and in increased cargo space – the 78-inch long cargo floor now allows for packing lots of things and the trunk comes with valuable extras, such as hands-free power opening and an all-new, single-touch cargo cover.
The new Subaru SUV range now also includes lots of advanced cabin tech features as standard. The automaker’s state-of-the-art EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is offered as standard on all new Outback models and include ample lane keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control. The size of the display for infotainment varies with the trim – the base version comes with an 8-inch screen, while all higher trims use Subaru’s new, 11.6-inch, tablet-like display with lots of user-friendly features, including screen splitting.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Some Great Things Don't Need to Change

The Subaru Outback range features many other remarkable technological solutions as well, one of the most outstanding traits being the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System offered as standard on all new Outbacks. The system distributes power to each of the four wheels, thus optimizing traction and stability among any road circumstances and in any driving situation. The Lineartronic CVT, the auto start-stop function are also standard across the range.

New Exterior Features

Exterior Features of the 2020 Subaru Outback

The great off-roading capacities of the new Outback SUV come paired with other exterior features that enhance both its appearance and its usability. The all-new Onyx trim stands out with a more rugged appearance thanks to the black-finish accents and the massive, 18-inch wheels that also come in black and detailing is stylish on the other trims, too. All models have a lot to offer to those who plan to go on long road-trips on varied terrain: all models come equipped with improved, raised roof rails with tie downs and integrated crossbars.

Structural Innovations & Ruggedness

Structural Innovations and Other Features to Improve Ruggedness and Off-Roading Capacities

The new Outback range rests on Subaru’s well-known and highly appreciated Global Platform, but the line-up is now sturdier, more of a rugged outdoors SUV, more suitable for off-roading than previous versions. The redesigned platform uses special solutions that make it around 70% stiffer, with a subframe that is 100% more rigid: the inner frame is no longer made welding the upper and the lower part together; it is made from one extremely solid and resistant piece, with only the outer panels attached through welding. The solution improves crash protection, allowing the body to absorb 40% more energy in the event of a crash.
The 8.7-inch ground clearance featured by the entire new Outback range allows to move around on any terrain, the line’s outdoor capacities being taken one step further with the help of the symmetrical all-wheel drive that distributes power evenly on all fours, with the revised suspension that now includes struts, aluminium front control arms and hollow anti-roll bars that do a stellar job without adding weight. The symmetrical AWD comes in tandem with X-Mode, the system implemented to optimize the AWD on very slippery roads and with Hill Descent Control for even safer drives on difficult winter roads.

Powertrain Features

New Features of the 2020 Subaru Outback Drivetrain
The line-up uses two engine solutions across its trims: four out of the seven trims (the base, the Premium, the Limited and the Touring) use the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter engine, able to put out 182 HP, the other trims (the all-new Onyx, the Limited XT and the Touring XT) being equipped with an all-new, 2.4-liter, direct-injection turbocharged boxer engine capable 260 HP instead of the 3.6-liter engine used on the previous model-year version. All 2020 Subaru Outback models come with Lineartronic CVT, 18.5-gallon tanks and with estimated fuel efficiency of up to 33 mpg combined.
