In the past I have not been that much of a fan of the Subaru Outback. It has (had) lower ground clearance than the Forester or XV, and I didn’t much like the look of it. But, having seen the promo pictures for the MY20 Outback, I reserve my right to change my mind.
I do like what I have seen so far about the MY20 Outback, plus it will come with a 2.4 petrol litre turbo that is putting out close to 200kw. That engine should give this new Outback a 0-100 kph time that is sub-seven seconds.
Additionally, at last, Subaru are giving the Outback the ‘standard’ ground clearance the same as the Forester and XV—being 220 mm, or 8.7 inches in the old money.
Even though it is referred to as the 2020 Outback, as is typical with Subaru, it is likely to arrive for sale in Australia before Xmas 2019.
