Unsurpassed engineering,

all-road superiority

The all-new 2020 Subaru Outback is a compelling blend of longstanding Subaru engineering excellence and the latest technological advances. First introduced on other Subaru models, the Subaru Global Platform now brings to this unique utility vehicle greater strength, increased stability and superior driving dynamics. The legendary Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system, linked to the choice of two all-new SUBARU BOXER® engines and new versions of the Lineartronic® CVT, enables reliable response on all types of surfaces. Superb handling, rugged all-road/all-weather capability and a level of confidence behind the wheel that is unmatched in its class: this is the Outback story.

All-new, higher-performing SUBARU BOXER® engines

The 2020 Subaru Outback is available with the choice of two all-new SUBARU BOXER® engines. The direct-injection 2.5-litre 4-cylinder, linked to a new Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), is engineered to perfectly balance powerful response with outstanding fuel economy. The direct-injection turbocharged 2.4-litre 4-cylinder is connected to a new high-torque CVT to create class-leading levels of performance. Both engines incorporate the latest weight-saving measures and advanced technologies to boost efficiency, improve acceleration and heighten driver engagement.

2020 Subaru Outback Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

The all-new Outback is available with two new versions of the Lineartronic® CVT, one linked to the 2.5-litre 4-cylnder and the other paired with the turbocharged 2.4-litre 4-cylinder. These transmissions have been further refined for greater efficiency, reduced noise and heightened driveability. Each drivetrain is fully integrated with the Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system to create unsurpassed levels of control and confidence under all possible conditions. These drivetrains give the Outback the superior performance of a full-time AWD utility with the fuel-efficiency of a front-wheel drive vehicle.

Two New Versions of X-MODE®

There are now two versions of the reengineered X-MODE® system, which allows you to tackle the steepest of inclines with even more confidence. The touchscreen functions on the standard version controls the operation of the VDC and X-MODE® together. The dual-function version, available exclusively on the Outdoor XT trim level, has touchscreen controls that lets you select between two different settings tailored to specific driving conditions—namely, snow/dirt and deep snow/mud.

2020 Subaru Outback Hill Decent Control

Hill Descent Control

With the X-MODE® system activated, Hill Descent Control automatically maintains a constant speed when travelling down steep inclines. With the system activated, the driver is free from the demands of controlling the brakes and can focus exclusively on navigating the road ahead.

All-new, even stronger chassis

Built on the new Subaru Global Platform, the all-new chassis is characterized by greater strength, reduced noise, reduced harshness and heightened safety overall. The use of more high-strength tensile steel in key areas has created greater torsional stiffness compared to the previous version. These measures allow the revised suspension system to create even better handling properties, including less body roll, crisper response and higher levels of confidence-inspiring control.

2020 Subaru Outback Robust Chassis

Front Suspension

The MacPherson® front strut-type suspension system—renowned for its superior driver feedback, response and stability—has been retained for the all-new Outback. Redesigned for the all-new Outback, the system now features an additional k-shaped cross member brace and other improvements engineered to reduce lateral forces and vibration, while increasing comfort and securing ride quality. Normally found on high-end luxury and performance cars, the k-shaped brace is also the perfect addition to a genuine go-anywhere utility vehicle.

Rear Suspension

The double-wishbone rear suspension system on the all-new Outback has been fine-tuned to reduce noise and vibration, while increasing control and stability. In order to increase control, the rear stabilizer bar is now mounted directly to the body instead of through rubber bushings, which has resulted in 50% less body roll. This revised design creates a composed ride over even the roughest surfaces and opens up more interior space for passengers and their cargo.
