With 2020 being, well, eventful to say the least, Subaru has still provided a bright spot by introducing some enhancements to a couple of models from their already revered portfolio. Spending time in both the 2020 Outback Limited XT (pictured above) and Legacy Limited XT, Subaru confirms they know how to keep their loyalists happy by progressing without dramatically changing the formulas of this dynamic duo.

Besides Subaru’s noteworthy loyalty of their customer base, corporations have made especially the Outback model one of the short list of car options to use for work. Why? Along with the carmaker’s remarkable reputation for reliability over the years, the value, road adaptability, customer service and practicality have always kept the brand in high regards.

The sixth generation of the Outback SUV not only sports subtle physical changes sitting on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, but also substantial upgrades in the technology department, including the STARLINK 11.6-inch multimedia touchscreen, across-the-board smartphone integration, and DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System to ensure eyes are kept where they’re supposed be and combat fatigue. We also love the leather-adorned interior, dual USB ports for the rear console, Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, Lineartronic CVT, hands-free power rear gate, and All-Weather package to make sure we combat any inclement environs confidently. All in all, this midsize SUV is a winner with a very fair price tag around $38,000.

Keep the subcompact 2020 Crosstrek and Legacy sedan in mind as well. In an extremely popular segment, the Crosstrek model is one of the most comfortable, spacious and generous cargo spaces when it comes to packing for long trips. An advanced, yet user-friendly infotainment system seals the deal to make it one of the most sound decisions when purchasing a new auto.

The 2020 Legacy has added some extra muscle.

The top-of-the-line 2020 Legacy Limited XT also makes an impression, boasting not only the new, aforementioned STARLINK touchscreen and similar XT benefits, but also LED steering responsive headlights, increased passenger legroom, and a muscle-flexing 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER DOHC engine pumping out up to 260 horses. Even with the power boost, this sedan still averages 27 miles per gallon combined.

Also note that Subaru proudly announces that their Legacy and Outback are built on the “Subaru Global Platform, which offers increased safety, dynamics and quietness as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness” for the win, according to their website.

Thanks for giving us car enthusiasts something to feel good about in 2020, Subaru.
