And the brand-new 2020 Outback that debuts at the New York Auto Show this week offers updates that broaden the model's appeal without straying from that charming formula. The sixth-generation SUV comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Subaru's award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. They swear it migrates, like all other newbie Subies, to the Subaru Global Platform that underpins the recent Impreza, Forester, Ascent, and is now coming to the Legacy and Outback. What we didn't know, Subaru engineers increased structure stiffness by 70 percent, and 100-percent stiffer in both front lateral flexural and rear subframe rigidity compared to the previous Outback's platform. With its 2019 models, Outbacks had touchscreen displays that topped out at 8-inches diagonal - functional, certainly, but nothing to really write home about. It rises on MacPherson struts up front, while the rear has a double-wishbone layout. Most models come with a 2.5-liter flat-four making a modest 182 horsepower (136 kilowatts) and 176 pound-feet (239 Newton-meters) of torque. The Outback will be the first vehicle to offer the Chimani app within its infotainment system.
Subaru of America today introduced the all-new 2020 Outback offering the most advanced features, design and capability in its history. Subaru notes the 2.4-liter engine offers a 3,500-pound towing capacity, which is an 800-pound improvement and the Outback's highest tow rating ever. This engine is slightly more efficient, with Subaru estimating fuel economy of 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. Its stereo camera-based EyeSight Driver Assist Technology will be offered as standard fare on the 2020 Outback and now includes technologies like advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering, and DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. Facing inward, meanwhile, there's a driver focus system, using an infrared camera and facial recognition to monitor the person behind the wheel for signs that they're getting exhausted or distracted. You can also add on steering-responsive LED headlights, automatic reverse braking, blind-spot detection and more fun features for extra cash. That uses a front camera to give a 180-degree view of the terrain ahead of the Outback on the 11.6-inch dashboard display. The 2020 Outback should hit dealers by late 2019 in Base, Premium, Limited, Limited XT, Touring XT and the new Onyx XT trim levels. Seats are wrapped in a new water-repellant durable StarTex material for off-road adventures.

Out back, the Outback's newly available hands-free power-lift system opens the tailgate with the wave of a hand, providing access to a widened load-area opening. A 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat is standard in most models, while full power adjustment for the passenger's seat and heated and cooled front seats come on higher trim levels. Touring models add ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel to their roster of standard features.
