As with each new design, 2020 Subaru Outback will also bring many new features. If we can judge in unofficial reports, the new model will be inspired by the recently introduced Viziv concept. The new concept car has introduced a brand new design approach, characterized by many defined lines. The interface is completely different from that of Subaru in the current alignment. A set of angular lines and a modern visual approach makes this concept very attractive, especially given the company’s classic style politics. On one side you can observe an extremely elegant profile. This seems unusual for the crossing, but that’s because this model has always flirted with the design of family cars. We can only hope that the new concept is a starting point for the new 2020 Subaru Outback, as well as other future models. Of course, expect a slightly softer approach, with more favorable elements to production.
Exterior and Interior
The exterior of 2020 Subaru Outback SUV will have most of its modifications up front when compared to the previous model. The redesigned hexagonal grid now has the logo of the brand in the center. In addition, you will get adjustments to the headlights that now come with LED lighting. The dimensions of this SUV remain the same as in the current version. Measures the wheelbase of 108.1 inches, the length of 189.6 inches, a width of 72.4 inches and a height of 66.1 inches. The standard wheels of this model are 17 inches and buyers can get a bigger one for the extra money. Thanks to the many color options, this model will be even more attractive.

The interior of this model will also receive updates and everything is now technical. The cabin is also spacious and offers much more space for all passengers.

You’ll also have a 6 way manual driver’s seat and a 6.5 inch touchscreen infotainment system in the center. This system will have Bluetooth connectivity and Android Auto / Apple CarPlay.

The system includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, Pre-Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning System.
Like the current model, the new 2020 Subaru Outback comes with two variants of 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder engines. The first is the popular 4 cylinder 2.5 liter standard cylinder that will give a power of 175 hp. This type of engine has a torque of 174 lb-ft at 4,000 rpm. Fuel, this will give the EPA fuel economy in the city / highway of 25/32 mpg. The next engine is much more robust and is equipped with a powerful 3.6 liter flat motor. It is capable of producing / delivering 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. The fuel economy of the city / highway of the EPA is 20/27 mpg. In addition, both engines will be powered by a continuously variable automatic transmission with paddle mounted paddles for manual control, and all wheel drive is standard on both.

We should also add that this model has an acceleration from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds, while the maximum speed is 139 mph.
Price and Release Date
For now, it seems early to talk about a more accurate release date. However, we are confident that the new generation will arrive in about two years time. Before that, we will probably see the new model at a major motor show. In terms of price, we do not expect any major changes. The current model is between $ 26,000 and $ 39,000. The new 2020 Subaru Outback should stay within this range, although the final performance model will likely cost several thousand dollars more. As far as competition is concerned, it must be said that this model is located between the crossings and the wagon, and that there are many similar models in this class. One of the possible rivals could be the Audi Allroad. However, even the 2020 Subaru Outback of the current generation is superior in terms of off-road capabilities.
