Subaru Outback Onyx Turbo - All The Official Details!

Subaru Outback Onyx Turbo - All The Official Details!

The major changes come inside the cabin and beneath the sheetmetal by introducing a more premium interior, and an all-new XT trim with a new 277-lb-ft 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer engine.

The 2020 Subaru Outback made its global debut at this year's ny auto show.

There's no word on price, but it's safe to say the base models will stay close in price to the outgoing Outback. The new 2020 Outback is available in base, Premium, Limited, Touring, Onyx Edition XT, Limited XT, and Touring XT guise, and all ride on the new Subaru Global Platform and boast wider fenders, a bigger hexagonal grille, and, on all but the base auto, LED fog lights.

Those numbers are good, but since Outback owners may want to put their vehicles through some more hard off-road conditions, it's ready for that as well. Both engines are hooked up to a continuously variable transmission, and turbocharged Outbacks can tow up to 1,590 kilograms - more than enough to haul a BRZ or a Miata to the track. A CVT will be paired to both engines and, as is the case on every Subaru model but the BRZ sports vehicle, the automaker's symmetrical all-wheel-drive system will be standard on the 2020 Outback.

That is of course in addition to the standard Subaru symmetrical AWD system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

But the wait for the new Subaru Outback should be worth it.

Subaru says the "all-new" suspension arrangement is "lighter and more responsive", with the MacPherson struts up front gaining new internal rebound springs, aluminium lower "L-arms" and a new 23 mm hollow stabiliser bar. Meanwhile, the rear adopts a double-wishbone layout with subframe, coil springs and new 19-mm hollow stabiliser bar. In conjunction with the introduction of new Outback, Subaru of U.S. also prepared a rather touching video (posted below), which is well worth a watch.

As for safety tech, Subaru's standard EyeSight driver-assistance package joins adaptive cruise control, lane centering and an infrared camera-controlled driver-awareness system.

Limited and Touring models get 10-way power front seats and heating front and rear.

The new 2020 Onyx Edition XT features black-finish exterior elements, 18-inch alloy wheels and badging, and an exclusive gray two-tone interior. For powering and pairing personal devices, up to four USB ports and two 12-volt DC power sockets are available.

The body itself is styled following Subaru's "Dynamic x Solid" philosophy, which is tied in with the "Active x Tough" concept.

Whether you get the big touchscreen or opt for the base model, every 2020 Outback comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth audio and over-the-air updates.

Subaru says the new model has improved head, shoulder and legroom in the rear, as well as a larger cargo space, with hands free operation for the tail gate. If you wish, there's an 11.6-inch touchscreen that's available for an extra cost. Still sharing the same underpinnings as the latest version of the Subaru Legacy line, the new Outback is expected to become one of Subaru's first models to be electrified during a life cycle that will take it into the middle of the next decade.
