New Subaru Outback Is Coming This Year With 2020 Legacy Tech

A new Subaru Outback is in the works and according to Car and Driver, it will receive many of the new features found in the 2020 Legacy unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.

Upgrades to the latest-generation Outback will start with the implementation of the same global platform as the Legacy. This new platform provides greater rigidity, improved handling, better refinement, and promises to overhaul the vehicle.

In all likelihood, Subaru will do away with the six-cylinder engine of some Outback variants and replace it with the 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine of the Ascent with around 260 hp – just like it did with the new Legacy. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder delivering 182 hp and making do without forced induction will serve as the entry-level engine. All models will come standard with the same CVT.

Styling of the new Outback will be very similar to the Legacy, albeit with an increased ride height and a station wagon body style. The exterior looks may be rather uninspired, but the interior should be a nice place to sit and play, especially with the 11.6-inch touchscreen seen on the Legacy.

Subaru’s advanced EyeSight active safety features are also expected to arrive as standard. Passenger room and luggage space will obviously be much greater than the Legacy.

Subaru spokesperson Dominick Infante has confirmed that the new Outback will premiere later this year. It will then go on sale in the United States as a 2020 model.

    If it goes the Legacy direction great, if it goes the Forester direction not so much. I could probably count a dozen going to the store, these baby’s will continue to sell, sell, sell.

      this one looks really good as it is, i just hope they got updated interior, exterior looks, i would keep it as is.

    Based on the big sales of the current one, I doubt it will change much. Just add the new Legacy’s updates. Bet we see it at the New York Show late next month.
