2020 Subaru Legacy And Outback Get Minor Price Hike Ahead Of Their Launch This Fall

Subaru has announced pricing for the redesigned 2020 Legacy and Outback.

Starting with the sedan, the Legacy starts at $22,745 which is a $200 increase over last year’s model. Despite the modest price change, the car now comes equipped with a Starlink infotainment system that features two 7.0-inch displays. The upper unit is largely focused on audio controls, while the lower screen provides access to the climate control system and various vehicle settings.

Under the hood, there’s a revised 2.5-liter Boxer engine that produces 182 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 176 lb-ft (238 Nm) of torque – a modest increase of 7 hp (5 kW / 7 PS) and 2 lb-ft (3 Nm). The upgraded engine is connected to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission that features a new eight-speed manual shift mode and steering wheel paddle shifters.

Moving up the ladder, the Legacy Premium, Sport and Limited all have a new 11.6-inch Starlink Multimedia Plus system. The Limited also boasts new side mirrors with two-position memory and an auto-tilting function on the passenger side.

More importantly, there’s new XT variants which have a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine that produces 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS) and 277 lb-ft (376 Nm) of torque.

Besides the aforementioned changes, all Legacy models have an improved EyeSight driver assistance system that now features adaptive cruise control with a lane centering function.

The 2020 Outback is largely identical to the Legacy, but it costs $300 more than its predecessor as it now starts at $26,645.

The big news for the 2020, apart from the redesign, is the Onyx Edition XT which starts at $34,895. It featured a blacked out exterior with 18-inch alloy wheels. Other highlights include water-repellant StarTex seats, a full-size spare tire, a hand-free power tailgate and an exclusive Dual-Mode X-Mode system.

The 2020 Subaru Legacy and Outback will arrive at dealerships this fall.

Note: Prices exclude a destination and delivery of between $900 and $1,160.

    Only Subaru can redesign a car and make it look like the version from 2 generations ago.

      Couldn’t that be said of practically every new Mercedes and BMW and Audi and VW and Porsche and so on?

      • Big Black Duck

        well said…

        No, they all look up-to-date. You’re confusing maintaining a brand image with looking ‘old’. This Legacy looks like a 2004.

        • Dude

          Subaru has stated that their design language, especially on the Outback, is something customers like about their cars so they don’t completely reinvent them every generation. That’s exactly what all of those other automakers do lol

          • Matt

            I don’t mind Subaru maintaining a design language that customers are familiar with, but their designs are just so lacklustre and they don’t look like a 2019 model should. However if they sell well then I guess who cares.

            Those ‘other brands’ do a much better job of evolving their design identity while still looking like a BMW, Audi etc. and their customers expect avant-garde design, not same old recycled 2009 designs.

            Mitsubishi is the example of the Car brand that came across my mind when i read your comment. They are not in reinventing their design what so ever.

        • Craig

          Are you seriously trying to tell me that the new one looks like THIS?

          • Matt

            Not quite, there was a time when Subaru was actually quite innovative with their designs. As soon as they ditched their frameless windows it went steadily downhill and remains rather stale.

    • Baeyoung ❂

      I don’t think people who are interested in a Subaru really care about that, otherwise they would just considering a Kia..

      • Shobin Drogan

        That doesn’t mean Subaru shouldn’t care.

  • Craig

    Imagine if you could get either one of these cars with the 260 hp engine and a manual transmission or even a dual-clutch automatic. BUT….. sigh. Other than that they are very nice. I especially like that 11.6-inch Starlink Multimedia Plus system. I’ve been seriously considering buying a Crosstrek. So I’ve been really into all things ‘Subaru’ lately. I wish the Crosstrek had 260 hp. 108 more hp would certainly make the Crosstrek more fun.

      I own a 2017 Outback….great practical vehicle…only thing to worry about is the CVT…I hope they have ironed out the issues with that tranny

  • AintYerPa

    How is this news? Show me a car company that ISN’T raising prices for the next model year…

  • ctk4949

    Interior for sure is 2020, but that exterior is at least 10 years old?? lol
