So many of the roll out videos and promos feature the green color. Personally, I think it is a "dud" of a color and unflattering.
This new style of video is horrible. I subbed because of your unique personality. I not a fan
Nice vehicle, but when I heard CVT ☹️. No ty
Interior is definitely nice. But not the exterior. Somehow 2018 model looks more cohesive from front to back. This 2020 model, the rear quarter looks heavy and doesn't pair well with the front half.
Let's be honest, all the videos on this channel are really just advertisements for Hulk-ish calf muscles; cars are just a second-thought here.
Tell the truth. 4:35 was the "calf shot".
center touchscreen reminiscent of Volvo XC90… hmm. this or forester? this video kinda sold me. I want to see the forester with the turbo & these upgrades
Finally, a Subaru that doesn't look cheap on the inside. Now I'm interested!
Dave – Perfect timing for this ultimate review of the new for 2020 Outback ! My 2016 Outback Limited knows the days in our driveway are numbered – – just waiting for the right 2020 Limited XT to roll off the truck from Indiana 🙂 Thanks for the super detailed coverage of the features and updates for the 6th generation. Virtually no issues with my 2016 Outback 5th gen – a solid "everyday driver" and it's reassuring you just toss the keys to your better half on a wild Winter Wonderland day. We've just not had any inclement weather here in the Heartland to even begin to test the Outback's AWD capabilities. The Subaru owner community is enthusiastic to say the least, and the 2020 Outback will fit right in.
Was the star stop noticeable?
Subaru needs to really dump that Jatco CVT if it ever wants to compete with Toyota
I'm continually amazed at just how the Subaru engineers have evolved this vehicle into a truly attractive and safe alternative to so many other brands. A great review.
I like what they've done with the side mirrors. Integrating them more smoothly than previous year models.
Sure is nice.
Good review. Thanks for doing it.
Here in the Pacific Northwest criticizing any Subaru is likely to cost you invitations to neighborhood parties and family Thanksgiving dinners. Fortunately, the new Outback, especially the XT version, is a very appealing vehicle. When the Ascent was introduced last year I wondered about the future of the Outback. The Forester seems to grow with almost every model year and the Ascent finally gave Subaru a competitive midsize 3 row SUV. Would there still be a place for Subaru's best selling model?
In fact, it appears the XT's engine has a more appropriate home than in the larger Ascent. The Ascent stands almost alone in offering only a turbo 4 in its market category. (Only the CX-9 has a similar limitation.) But in the Outback with a curb weight at least 700 lbs less than the Ascent, the turbo 4 in the Outback looks like a strong contender in terms of performance, fuel economy, and durability. The difference in curb weight is even greater if the vehicles are loaded with passengers, fuel, and gear. In effect, the difference comes close to the total weight of an NFL offensive line.
Furthermore, Subaru owners have typically had to apologize for the relatively cheap and cramped interior of their vehicles compared to rivals. The cost of Subaru's standard AWD has to be balanced somehow. Apparently, though, Subaru has made significant strides in improving the Outback's interior. Some reviewers (e.g. Consumer Reports) have complained about the usability of the new Outback's infotainment system but there's no doubt that it's a significant upgrade compared to previous years. Others may complain about the Outback's CVT. Personally, I'm no fan of CVT's in general but there's no doubt that the CVT's of a decade ago have been improved significantly. And most reviewers of the Outback suggest the transmission isn't subject to the worst sins of CVT's.
All in all, the Outback should remain the most popular vehicle from Subaru. Personally, I'm a fan of the "tweener" size crossovers (188"-192" in length. And I find the "wagon-esque" character of the Outback to be especially appealing. It deserves a look by those interested in a five passenger midsize SUV.
Has anyone had a Subaru with the CVT? I know they've been using them for quite some time and I think they're Jatco units (like Nissan uses and gets lambasted regularly for). Are they reliable? Would you buy one if you were planning on keeping it for a dozen years?
Options sound near luxury. Love that "11 touchscreen.
i own a 2019 outback and I have no Subaru love but it does have an abundance of road noise drives as though in a strong crosswind. Every time I drive it I have another reason to hate myself for buying it.I
The outback is justnplan e jane looking. Needs more attention to design to getnmy dollar. Otherwise its pretty nice
