The 2020 Subaru Outback will officially make its debut next week at the 2019 New York auto show. Subaru showed a teaser photo giving a glimpse of the new Outback’s front fender; the new car wears green paint, black plastic body cladding, and redesigned wheels to make for a quintessentially Subaru-esque look.

When Subaru Legacy 2020 is here, what is going on in the Outback 2020. Can you imagine?
The safest, most reliable, most advanced, best Subaru Legacy ever is here and it’s completely redesigned — inside and out. The 2020 Legacy features enhanced safety and performance, a refined interior with even more comfort and style, and convenient technology upgrades including an all-new intuitive big-screen interface. Plus, with the award-winning safety of standard Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology .
The biggest change for the new Outback, then, will be its new underpinnings. It will shift to the same new global platform as the Legacy, which promises increased rigidity, sharper handling, and improved refinement. A turbocharged Outback also seems a sure bet to return to the lineup. Outback will use the same turbocharged 260-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine first introduced in the Ascent three-row SUV.
A mostly carryover 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 182 horsepower will remain the base engine, and all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will be standard on all models.
The new Legacy goes on sale this fall, so expect to see the Outback arrive in showrooms sometime near the end of 2019.
