New Subaru Outback SUV launched

New-gen 2020 Subaru Outback carries on its rugged legacy - Autoblog

The Outback is among Subaru's best sellers and the Japanese brand ensured that the latest version of the popular soft-roader ups capability.

Subaru's lifted wagon is back for more with the introduction of the 2020 Outback-the sixth generation of one of Subaru's mainstay family vehicles.

Underhood, the 2020 Outback retains a 2.5-liter flat-4 rated at 182 hp in base, Premium, Limited, and Touring trims. Should you want to venture off the beaten path, the Outback offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance - the same as before - and all models get the company's X-Mode function with hill-descent control.

On the powertrain front, the big news is the return of a turbocharged engine option. Both engines will be powered through an eight-speed CVT gearbox. Manufacturer's estimated fuel economy is 26/33 mpg city/highway for the 2.5-liter and 23/30 mpg city/highway for the turbo. Up front the Outback will have MacPherson struts with an internal rebound spring and a new 0.9-inch hollow stabilizer bar. Meanwhile, the rear adopts a double-wishbone layout with subframe, coil springs and new 19-mm hollow stabiliser bar.

For starters, the 2020 Outback now rides on Subaru's global platform, which underpins the Ascent, Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza and redesigned 2020 Legacy, the latter of which largely forms the basis for this redesigned wagon. The improved structure is also said to be 40 percent more absorbent in front and side crashes.

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist uses stereo cameras and other sensors to add adaptive cruise control with lane centering to the 2020 Outback.

The new 2020 Onyx Edition XT features black-finish exterior elements, 18-inch alloy wheels and badging, and an exclusive gray two-tone interior.

With the slight increases in power comes a lighter and more agile suspension. Sound-insulated glass, which uses a sound-insulating inner film for the windshield and front-door glass, has been adopted, while glass thickness all around has been increased for quietness. Ten-way power seats arrive on higher trimmed models and, with the top - Limited - adding ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel. The 2020 Outback extends the seat heating to three levels, and spreads the coverage up to the shoulders. A set of ten-way power adjustable front seats will be available, along with up to four USB ports and two 12-volt power sockets.

Wednesday Severe Weather Threat
This storm system will bring more rain than the last few: Up to 2 inches in some spots, according to the weather service. As the storm moves east, a lot of rain will fall from Texas to New England.

Bringing out some facts and figures, the Outback offers up to 2,143 litres (75.7 cubic feet) of cargo space with the rear seatbacks folded down. Both features are a first for Subaru and are standard on most 2020 Outback models. Roof rails with integrated, retractable cross bars and tie-downs are also standard.

The body itself is styled following Subaru's "Dynamic x Solid" philosophy, which is tied in with the "Active x Tough" concept. The result is a rugged and functional design that inspires wanderlust and enables active lifestyles.

Outside, Outback gets modest styling upgrades with wider fenders, thicker profile panel surfaces and raised rear gate.

Next-gen Subaru Australia #Outback unveiled at New York Show #nyias The good news - more room, better tech and improved...

This year, though, Subaru made an 11.6-inch vertical touch panel standard on all Outback models save for the most basic.

The highlight of the interior is a new, 11.6-inch touchscreen. Like with a smartphone, app icons can be moved and configured based on personal preference.

Along with a larger windshield to see the world outside, buyers can get a 180-degree front camera and Outbacks with the big screen are equipped with the Chimani app, which is a digital guide to the U.S. National Park system. The wrapped surface material and stitching employ the same color combination as the seats and door trim for a uniform look and feel. An available high-speed LTE connection spreads Wi-Fi around the vehicle.

Official pricing hasn't been announced just yet, but expect the Outback in dealers this fall.
