Here at Southern Oregon Subaru, we love the attention to detail the carmakers at Subaru put into every aspect of their vehicles. For 2020, the Outback has undergone a significant overhaul as the designers at Subaru look to improve the safety, engine, and technology of one of the best-reviewed vehicles of 2019. Despite the fact 2020 Subaru Outback is classed as an all-new model we are describing this as the evolution of the Outback with the exterior not changed too dramatically to keep the well-known look of this successful family vehicle.

Added Space to the Rear

The 2019 Subaru Outback is a vehicle we loved in our showroom, and to see this latest upgrade, making it even more impressive gives us a sense of pride. The interior of the Outback has even more space for those rear passengers in the 2020 model. When you are driving around Medford, you will feel the difference in the available amount of legroom for rear passengers that has been increased by around 1.4-inches over the 2019 model year.

Overall, the added space provided for the rear passengers is the significant change to the 2020 Outback over the 2019 model year. Both the 2019 and 2020 model year keep the same impressive styling that makes this a vehicle that is going to keep you happy when driving in the city or on the highway around Grants Pass.

You may notice the excellent ground clearance of the 2019 Outback of 8.7-inches is maintained in the 2020 version that we believe you will come to love as soon as you slide behind the steering wheel at our showroom.

A New Engine Design

There were few complaints about the 2019 Outback engine capabilities, but the 2020 redesign has taken a major step with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine now included as standard. The redesign of the standard engine is just as impressive as the six-cylinder engine that has been enjoyed by 2019 Outback drivers and adds a little more power and efficiency.

With 182-horsepower, the 2020 model gives you all the power you need to get around Ashland. This new engine uses around 90 percent new parts and is joined by an upgrade for trim levels above the base that uses the Boxer turbocharged 2.4-liter engine. The Boxer engine is one of the most impressive on the market, in our opinion. Hitting the gas in any of the XT trim level vehicles can make a big difference with an available 260-horsepower giving you the extra power you need.

This engine upgrade adds a new layer of performance to your ownership of the Subaru Outback that is now equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive as standard to help you get around Central Point. Subaru has upgraded even the transmission for the 2020 model year with the Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission to mimic an eight-speed gearbox instead of the six-speed of the 2019 model.

An Upgrade in Technology

The change in the central infotainment center is probably the upgrade that is easiest to spot in the 2020 Subaru Outback. On some trim levels, the touchscreen infotainment center has been upgraded to an 11.6-inch tablet-style vertically installed option that keeps you in control of every aspect of your vehicle and available apps.
