Not quite a wagon, nor a crossover, the 2020 Subaru is classified as a midsize SUV, one that looks sleek like a car yet tough enough to handle almost anything on-road or off. The Subaru Outback is in a class of its own, thanks to distinct styling, a comfortable and well-equipped interior, and rugged capability, boasting all-wheel-drive and loads of driver-assistance technology. As a completely redesigned model, the 2020 version updates everything that makes the Outback fresh and versatile.

Off road, the 2020 Subaru Outback is trail-friendly and ready for adventure. Subaru's famed Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance make ruts and gravel roads a minor inconvenience. There's also the available X-Mode® system that includes hill-descent control and traction-control modes for difficult driving conditions. For families with an adventurous streak, the 2020 Subaru Outback will help you head out in new directions.
The Outback comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that delivers 182 hp. That then gets mated to a CVT to help create a smooth and well-balanced driving experience. Those who crave more power can opt for the spirited 2.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 260 hp. That's plenty for passing-lane maneuvers. As far as powertrains go, the 2020 Subaru Outback offers a nice balance of power and performance.
Almost all models of Subaru come standard with AWD. It's that simple, and it applies to every trim and variant of the 2020 Subaru Outback.
