Anticipate all-wheel drive to stay standard. Subaru won’t discuss engines, however, the Outback’s 2020 Legacy sibling will come standard with a 2.5-liter boxer-four engine producing 182 horsepower, though a 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer-four using 260 hp will be provided as an optional extra. A CVT is the only transmission option for the 2020 Legacy, therefore we expect this to be the case using the 2020 Outback.
The Crosstrek is into the Impreza exactly what the Outback is into the Legacy: A auto dressed up to look like an SUV. We’ve been impressed with Subarus according to this platform, so that bodes well for its 2020 Outback.
We’ll have to wait before the new Outback’s New York introduction. The 2020 Legacy understands an 11.6-inch touchscreen — the biggest ever offered in a Subaru. The Outback might get that big screen. Expect Subaru’s camera-based EyeSight driver-assist system, that is offered on the current-generation Outback, to come back in the 2020 model.
Stay tuned for more details about the 2020 Subaru Outback from the 2019 New York Automobile Show. The Outback won’t be the only new household car appearing in the Big Apple.
It’s hard to envision where Subaru would be now without the Outback. Jacking the ride height up taking a station wagon, and adding some styling cues has been a magic formula for the automaker. So will be a version that is new that is key.
Subaru confirmed the Outback’published a teaser picture of the car and so look in New York, but did not offer any additional details. HThe 2020 Outback will likely feature lots of the very same updates and changes since the 2020 Subaru Legacy sedan. The Outback was a Legacy wagon with SUV-inspired styling, and we expect that pattern to continue with the new edition.
