Subaru redesigned its Outback and Legacy twins for 2020, and just as their exterior styling changes were an exercise in subtlety, so too are the price increases that accompany the new models. When the 2020 versions go on sale, they’ll start just $300 higher for the Outback and $200 more for the Legacy.
Both models received a host of upgrades for 2020, including a powertrain update to the base engine and a new turbocharged engine for XT models, more standard and available safety features, and a huge new multimedia touchscreen system.
The 2020 Outback starts at $27,655, and is available in base, Premium ($29,905), Limited ($34,455), Touring ($38,355), Onyx Edition XT ($35,905), Limited XT ($38,755) and Touring XT ($40, 705); all Outback prices include a $1,010 destination charge. For 2020, all Outbacks are equipped with the EyeSight driver assistance package, which now features advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering. The Outback Premium, Limited and Onyx Edition XT trims have a standard 11.6-inch multimedia system with a high-resolution touchscreen; lower trims get a standard 7-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on both units.
Newly available features on the Outback this year include a hands-free power liftgate, Wi-Fi hot-spot capability and a driver distraction monitor that uses an infrared interior camera and facial recognition to spot driver fatigue or distraction, issuing audio and visual alerts as needed.
The 2020 Legacy starts at $23,645, and is available in base, Premium ($25,895), Sport ($27,845), Limited ($30,645), Limited XT ($35,095) and Touring XT ($36,795) trims; all Legacy prices include a $900 destination charge. It gets the same engine updates and EyeSight upgrade as the Outback and features a similar multimedia system setup: Legacy Premium, Sport and Limited trims get the new 11.6-inch screen while lower trims use the smaller unit.
Both models will begin arriving at dealerships in the fall.
