The 2020 Subaru Outback Is Redesigned: What’s New?


The 2020 Subaru Outback has been completely redesigned. Sure, you’ll still find a few familiar features from the older versions of this popular midsize SUV: it still has seating for five, gets good gas mileage, and provides you with the ability to go off-road. But there is a long list of changes with the 2020 Subaru Outback Redesign that set it apart from every other model of the Outback in the past. The new Subaru Outback has more power, style, connectivity options, and safety features than ever before. Here’s a rundown of all things new in the 2020 model year:


Powerful Engine Delivers Capable Performance & Improved MPG


Before the 2020 Subaru Outback Redesign, the Outback came with a 256-horsepower six-cylinder engine. The newest model of the Outback packs more power with an optional 260-horsepower turbocharged engine. This seemingly small increase in power has a big impact on how it feels to drive the 2020 Subaru Outback. It also helps increase capabilities when you take the Outback off-road. The new Outback is designed to go off the beaten path with 8.7 inches of ground clearance along with a number of available features such as X-Mode and dual-function X-Mode which are designed to help with traction control in a variety of driving situations. Despite the increase in power, the 2020 Subaru Outback offers slightly higher gas mileage than the 2019 version. 


Subaru Outback Features A Stylish New Look


Changes in the exterior styling of the 2020 Subaru Outback include a more substantial bumper on both the front and back, headlights and taillights with a sleeker profile, and an overall shape that looks more sporty and aerodynamic than previous models. On the interior you will find upholstery options that are new on the 2020 Outback such as StarTex water repellent upholstery. The sleek design on the exterior of the Outback is carried over into the interior for a cohesive and modern look. 


STARLINK Connectivity  & Impressive Touchscreen


The 2020 Subaru Outback Redesign includes some significant upgrades in technology and connectivity. You can connect with the Subaru STARLINK multimedia interface using the all new 11.6 inch touchscreen. The high resolution display makes it easier than ever to view and select your entertainment options. The 2020 Outback continues to offer connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 


2020 Subaru Outback Safety Features


The 2020 Subaru Outback redesign comes with a long list of standard and available safety features. One of the new safety features on the 2020 Outback is the Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. This system is designed to alert a driver who becomes distracted or drowsy while on the road. It also has the capability to recognize up to five different drivers and remember settings such as seat position, climate settings, and outside mirror position. Other available safety features on the 2020 Subaru Outback include blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, reverse automatic braking, and rear-vision camera.

Whether you are looking for a vehicle that works for your family or one that you can take off-road, the 2020 Subaru Outback delivers. The features outlined above are just a few of the options available with the 2020 Subaru Outback redesign.
