With its roomy interior and rugged drivetrain, the Subaru Outback is a great option for all types of drivers. Which one of its trim levels is right for you? To help families and drivers in Ithaca decide, Maguire Subaru explores all of the 2020 Subaru Outback trim levels.

Subaru Outback Review

The Outback runs on a 2.5L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It's capable of towing up to 2,700 pounds and has standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.  

The interior has cloth seats and a 7-inch touchscreen in the dashboard. This is the home of the SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system. It comes with lots of smartphone compatibility with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. You can also enjoy SiriusXM® All Access Radio and Travel Link®.

This monitor doubles as a driver-assistance feature, too. Put your Outback in reverse and you'll see what's behind you using the Rear-Vision Camera. For more safety and awareness, the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology package comes standard, too.

Subaru Outback Premium

The Outback Premium upgrades everything from the windows to the infotainment system. There's now an 11.6-inch touchscreen in the dashboard as well as a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. A pair of USB ports is added to the back seat to help passengers charge their phones.

The cabin offers more comfort and class with heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support. Meanwhile, the exterior now sports LED fog lights and body-color side mirrors with integrated turn signals.


Subaru Outback Limited

Leather seats come standard in the Outback Limited. Your passengers will find more ways to relax, too, with heated rear seats and an 8-way power- adjustable front-passenger seat. Enjoy superior sound quality with a 12-speaker Harman Kardon® premium sound system.

This trim also makes it easy to get on the road quickly. There's Keyless Access with Push-Button Start and a Hands-Free Power Rear Gate. Once you're on your way, you'll have more safety features helping protect you, such as Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Driving at night is also safer and easier. An auto-dimming rearview mirror reduces glare from headlights behind you, while LED Steering Responsive Headlights pivot as you turn the wheel.

Subaru Outback Touring

The Outback Touring trim adds lots of stylish accents to the exterior. There's a Satin chrome finish on the power-folding side mirrors, a silver finish on the roof rails and retractable crossbars, and chrome inserts on the body-color door handles.

Inside, you'll have a high-grade leather steering wheel and Java Brown Nappa leather seats. The Navigation system can help you find the fastest route with standard navigation. Just above that, you can let some light in with a power moonroof.

There are also a couple additional driver-assistance features on board, including the DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System and a 180-Degree Front View Monitor.

Subaru Outback Onyx Edition XT

The Subaru Outback Onyx Edition XT runs on a different powertrain. Under the hood, you'll find a 2.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine. It gets up to 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. This lets you tow up to 3,500 pounds. For added capability, it comes with Dual-Mode X-MODE® and selectable driving modes, such as Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud.

Subaru Outback Limited XT

The Outback Limited XT runs on the same powertrain as the previous trim but brings back some of the stylish features and amenities from earlier trim levels. These include a heated steering wheel and power moonroof. It also adds sound-insulating front door glass and dual exhaust outlets.
