The Subaru Outback has been a top-ranked crossover SUV for years, and it’s no wonder—the vehicle is easy to drive on all terrains, features plenty of cargo space, has lots of legroom, and a host of safety features come with every trim level. For 2020, the Outback has been redesigned to become even more reliable and include more standard features than it ever has before.

Safety Comes First in the 2020 Subaru Outback

For the first time, the DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System is available in the 2020 Subaru Outback. DriverFocus works hand-in-hand with Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology to keep both the driver and passengers safe, by using infrared sensors and facial recognition software to seek out signs of driver distraction or fatigue. The system will warn the driver in case of distraction, and slow the car to a stop if the driver ignores the warning.

Subaru’s Eyesight Driver Assist Technology first came standard with the Outback in 2019, and includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist to keep the driver from leaving their lane, and can even apply full braking force in emergency situations—this helps reduce or even avoid frontal vehicle impacts.

Exterior and Interior Updates

On the outside, the 2020 Outback seems similar to the 2019 model. But look closer, and you’ll finder a larger hexagonal grille, wider fenders, and LED fog lights. The roof rails feature trimmed openings and look lighter than in previous years. These new features make the 2020 Outback look sleek and stylish, while still retaining its classic crossover SUV feel.

The 2020 Outback retains its useful durability with even more cargo space. The maximum cargo volume is up to 75.7 cubic feet, and even with passengers the vehicle still offers 32.5 cubic feet of cargo space. There’s enough space for groceries, sports equipment, and more! There is also an available hands-free liftgate, so drivers with their hands full will be able to open their trunks quickly and easily.

The inside of the vehicle feels open and quiet, and is nearly 3 dB quieter on highways thanks to sound-insulated glass and updates to the exterior of the vehicle. The Outback’s interior has been redesigned with comfort in mind, with soft-touch materials and available heated seats and steering wheel for cold morning commutes.

An 11.6-inch STARLINK Multimedia touchscreen is available in the 2020 Subaru Outback, which is useful for navigation, music, and more—and the Outback comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, so connecting your smartphone to your vehicle is a breeze.

And if you thought it couldn’t get better, Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity is available for up to eight devices at once. Passengers can stream TV shows and play games, leaving the driver to focus on the road.

The 2020 Subaru Outback’s Performance and Structure

The 2020 Subaru Outback comes standard with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive featuring X-MODE, which features hill descent control and ensures easier handling on tough terrains—and it features 8.7 inches of ground clearance, more than many other SUVs.

A turbocharged 2.4-liter BOXER engine with 260 horsepower is available on all XT trim levels, and the standard 2020 Outback features a 2.5-liter BOXER engine with 182 horsepower. And every 2020 Outback model is enhanced with refined powertrains and a more responsive suspension.

For the first time, the 2020 Outback features the Subaru Global Platform. This feature absorbs over 40 percent more energy in front/side crashes than the current Outback model, and ensures a more structured feeling o the new 2020 Subaru Outback.
