The 2020 Outback enters its sixth generation and continues to deliver the go-anywhere abilities of all-wheel drive while maintaining high fuel efficiency. It will not disappoint Subaru faithful, and should be considered when looking at crossovers and SUVs.
Its nearest rivals are the Audi A4 Allroad, Honda CR-V, andFord Escape, but the latter two are neither wagons nor feature the offroad chops of the Outback.
A monstrous 8.7 inches of ground clearance, standard X-MODE®, and a Hill Descent Control gives the Outback superior off road capabilities.
Which Outback does Edmunds recommend?
The midlevel Premium trim offers a lot of features at a competitive price point, but if you have the budget, we suggest stepping up to theOnyx Edition XT. It packs more features than the Premium trim and benefits from a more powerful turbocharged engine.
