2019 Outback Details

The 2019 Subaru Outback Continues the Model's Dominance in the Crossover Segment

For everything from your daily commutes to weekend adventures throughout the Bay or east to the mountains, the new 2019 Subaru Outback continues the trend this flagship model has been on over the last decade or so. Still providing that well-balanced look and feel of a larger station wagon with small crossover-like capabilities, the Outback is a rugged, stylish, and well-equipped vehicle that's ideal for all kinds of driving throughout Santa Clara. The Outback remains the standout model of the new car lineup at our San Jose, CA Subaru dealership, and largely carries over the same specs, dimensions, and features from the previous edition. Read below to learn about what's new in the latest Outback edition, then visit us today for a test drive in this dynamic crossover.

2019 Subaru Outback: What's New in San Jose, CA?

The main change for the new 2019 Outback is the now-standard Subaru EyeSight safety suite, which was previous only available in higher trims. Now coming with the base level, the EyeSight suite includes features like adaptive cruise control, front collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist in the base package, while higher trims will add additional systems, which we'll touch on below. Subaru's take on driver assistance technology has routinely ranked highly throughout the auto industry, and if you desire a car that offers a boost of confidence, this is a great way to go.

2019 Subaru Outback Performance and Capabilities

Sticking to the key safety area, the standard AWD in the new 2019 Outback goes a long way toward keeping you and your loved ones out of harm's way on the streets of Mountain View. Though we don't get much snow or ice here in the Bay Area, the standard AWD assists you when traveling along rain-slicked roads or if you're driving through tougher terrains. Combine the AWD system with the 8.7 inches of raised ground clearance, and it's easy to see how adaptable the new Outback is for your off-road adventures.

Continuing with its legacy as a versatile vehicle, the new Outback offers two engine options. The base level engine – a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, producing 175 horsepower – is smartly efficient for a crossover of this size, earning up to 32 mpg on the highway. For a greater level of performance – and even some light towing capabilities – you can bump up to the 3.6-liter six-cylinder, producing 256 horsepower. Both engines pair nicely with the standard AWD, and you'll quickly discover that drivability is never an issue in your new Outback.

Features Abound in the 2019 Subaru Outback, Providing Safety, Connectivity, and Convenience for Your Bay Area Travels

Having the EyeSight suite come standard in your new Outback is certainly a highlight of this updated 2019 edition. But there's much more to be had in this crossover, starting with the well-equipped starting package. A touchscreen command center and steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio selections, volume, and more make it easy to use all kinds of features while you're on the go throughout Cupertino. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera also are standard in the new Outback, starting you off nicely with a full set of useful connectivity features you'll want for your travels around Sunnyvale and beyond.

Moving up to the higher trims gives you some nice upgrades, especially when it comes to your sound system, as well as some additional convenience features like keyless entry and ignition. You'll also be able to add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert to your EyeSight suite in the higher trims. Finally, an assortment of premium materials and luxurious stylistic touches and accents round out the improvements found by choosing a higher trim of the new 2019 Subaru Outback here in San Jose.

Subaru Outback FAQs

Where is the Subaru Outback Made?

You may know Subaru as a Japanese automaker, with corporate headquarters in Ebisu, a district of the Shibuya ward in Tokyo, Japan. However, the cars and SUVs it manufactures for North America, and specifically for the US, are made right here. That means that the Subaru Outback is, too. The plant that produces the model, Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA), is a subsidiary of the Subaru Corporation, but it's located in Lafayette, Indiana.

Are Subaru Outback Models 4WD?

Every Subaru Outback model comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, our automaker's exclusive permanent AWD system. It's a little different than a 4x4. Subaru all-wheel-drive systems are permanent rather than mode-activated, and therefore, always on. They deliver power evenly to all wheels simultaneously, giving priority to those with the optimal turning and pulling power They're also proactive with traction. Other electronic AWD systems, on the other hand, are characterized as reactive, "slip-then-grip." What Symmetrical AWD provides is excellent balance, a marked reduction in wheel slip across slick surfaces, quicker handling response, and compensation for both oversteer and understeer. That's a grip on the road and off the beaten path you can rely on.

When Was the First Subaru Outback Made?

By the early 1990s, drivers were looking for more durability and utility than one could find in the average station wagon. In 1994, Subaru answered the call with what it billed the world's first sport utility wagon. The first-generation Outback was based on the celebrated Subaru Legacy mid-size car, and today, it's the fully-fledged modern crossover SUV we've come to know and love.

When is the Next Subaru Outback Redesign?

The proverbial jury's out on the subject, but the history of the Outback suggests that 2020's a big maybe. After all, the model was all-new in 2015. We then saw a few minor safety, steering, and suspension improvements for 2016, followed by those of 2017, where we saw a Touring trim join the lineup. 2018 brought us a refresh, and in 2019, a host of upgrades made the cut. The EyeSight® driver-assist suite, for instance, now comes standard across the line, and there's an improved audio system in the Outback 2.5i base, among other enhancements. Will 2020 Outback incorporate the new Subaru Global Platform, as the manufacturer has done for other models? Will there be new features added, like those we've already seen in 2019 Forester -- for instance, the DriverFocus distraction mitigation system? Only time, and staying tuned, will tell!

How Many Does the Subaru Outback Seat?

The Outback seats up to five comfortably in a sizable cabin measuring anywhere from 104.5 cubic feet to 108.1, depending on which trim you choose. Seats are available in cloth or sumptuous leather, and they're optionally heated both up front and in the back.

What are the Differences Between the Outback Trim Levels?

The 2019 Subaru Outback line spans the gamut from a base model, 2.5i, through fully loaded top-of-the-line trims like 2.5i Limited and 2.5i Touring. Step up from the base to 2.5i Premium, and you get an exciting perk or two. There are also two 3.6R models, 3.6R Limited and 3.6R Touring, that bring together the best of both worlds: luxury and high-performance. Here's a breakdown of all you have to look forward to.

What Engine is in the Subaru Outback?

There are two to choose from. One is a 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER, capable of delivering 174 pound-feet of torque and standard in trims with the 2.5i designation. The other is a stalwart 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6, prepared to deliver a powerful 247 pound-feet and standard in 3,6R trims. Both are "flat" by design rather than ln-line, meaning their pistons move from side to side, power delivery is more direct and effective, and a low center of gravity is all but assured.

Can the Subaru Outback Tow?

Yes, the crossover supports hauling up to 2,700 pounds, enough for anything from a light towable tent camper to a dirt bike duo or an ATV.
