2020 Subaru Outback Review

With your Subaru Outback you can go wherever your adventures take you. Versatile and capable; efficient and powerful; this is what it feels like to get off the beaten path—without the path beating you up. Choose from seven models starting with the Outback and moving through the well-appointed Outback Touring XT. Powered by a legendary Subaru Boxer engine every Outback features Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. X-Mode with Hill-Descent Control adds even more confidence on steep and slippery terrain. With 109 cubic feet of passenger space everybody rides in comfort. And extra soundproofing keeps outside noise where it belongs so it’s not just roomy inside it’s quiet too. And there’s plenty of technology. SUBARU STARLINK with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration keeps you connected and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology keeps you protected. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories4 and build an Outback that’s all yours. The Subaru Outback. Drive an SUV you can love.
The Subaru Outback is loaded with technology. SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia keeps you connected. Need to make a phone call? Want to hear something on your playlist? Need to get directions? Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and Navigation on an 11.6-inch touchscreen is available. Wondering if you left your doors unlocked? Available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security and the MySubaru Mobile App turn your smartphone into a remote control for your Outback. Lock and unlock doors find your car and more. The Subaru Outback. Love means never having to disconnect.
Standard Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology helps the Subaru Outback earn a Five-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. EyeSight is an innovative suite of features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering Pre-Collision Braking and DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation. It’s like having an extra set of eyes on the road—and an extra set of feet on the brakes. And if an accident’s unavoidable your Outback’s supplemental restraint system6 holds you in place and surrounds you with inflatable protection while available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security notifies first responders. The Subaru Outback. Love the safety.
The Subaru Outback is rolling proof comfortable cars can be rugged. Legendary Subaru Boxer engines provide the power and every Outback comes with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-Mode with Hill Descent Control. Add 8.7 inches of ground clearance and you’ve got one capable SUV—that gets up to 33 miles per gallon. Outback XT models get a turbocharged BOXER engine that puts out 260 horsepower. Add the High-Torque Lineartronic Transmission with Eight-Speed Manual Mode and Paddle Shifters and familiar back roads take on a whole new look. The Subaru Outback. Love every drive.
