Standard features will include 18-inch wheels, a dark gray grille, chrome exterior trim, heated steering wheel, woodgrain interior trim and piano-black accents, a navigation system with a 7-inch screen, a three-year satellite radio and traffic service subscription, and the Starlink Safety Plus emergency communications system.

Reverse automatic braking is a new feature that uses four sonar sensors in the rear bumper to automatically stop the vehicle to avoid collisions. The automatic high-beam system dims the headlights when it detects an oncoming vehicle. Both features have been added to the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology Package that will be standard on the Outback Touring.

Reverse automatic braking and high-beam assist will be available on the Sport as part of the extra-cost EyeSight Driver Assist Technology Package.
