The 2020 Subaru Outback continues the model’s long legacy of being a reliable and durable off-road-ready station wagon. The new Outback gets 33 miles per gallon on the highway and 26 mpg in the city, and like almost all Subarus, has standard all-wheel drive.
The 182-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car gets the job done — it’s not a dragster, but it’s dependable. Anyone seeking more power should look to the turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 260 horsepower.
There are 8.7 inches of ground clearance and a roomy 75.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with the second row of seats folded down. Subaru advertises this new Outback as the quietest version ever, thanks to features like insulated glass and new weather sealing. The Outback also has built-in Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity and a touchscreen infotainment system. The car has also standard roof rails with enhanced tie-downs to ensure your cargo is safe on- or off-road.
