Subaru has announced pricing for its 2020 Outback, which goes on sale in the fall. It will start at only $335 higher than the outgoing 2019 model, with the base model priced at $27,655. The car will be available in seven trim levels, with only the bottom two coming in under $30,000.
Every Outback comes standard with Subaru's EyeSight system, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, high-beam assist, 18-inch wheels, and, of course, all-wheel drive. Subaru has also increased sound deadening in every new Outback, so drivers who don't like the throaty song of the brand's boxer engines can get some peace and quiet.
The next-step-up Premium trim will cost $29,905 and adds a power driver's seat, an 11.6-inch tablet-style infotainment system, and dual-mode climate control to the base model's offerings. The Limited model will start at $34,465 and will come with leather seats, a Harman/Kardon stereo system, standard blind-spot monitoring, reverse automated emergency braking, and 19-inch wheels. The top-level Touring trim has sound-insulated front windows, ventilated front seats, a facial-recognition system that stores driver preferences and detects drowsy or distracted driving, and a standard CD player. All of those models will be powered by a 2.5-liter flat-four engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The Outback will also be available with a more powerful turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four, the same one that powers the Subaru Ascent, also paired with a CVT. The new off-road-oriented Onyx Edition is the cheapest way to get the beefier engine; it's priced at $35,905. Onyx models will come with a black grille, a full-size spare tire, and a front-facing camera to help avoid obstacles when maneuvering at low speeds. The Limited XT will cost $38,755 and adds sound-insulated front window glass, a moonroof, navigation services, and 19-inch wheels to the features on the Limited 2.5-liter model.
Touring XT models mark the upper end of the lineup at $40,075 and add sound-insulating front glass to the standard Touring offerings.
Every turbocharged Outback will be rated to tow 3500 pounds and come with an extra off-road driving mode for deep snow and mud.
