April 19, 2019—The 2020 Subaru Outback, which debuted Wednesday at the New York International Auto Show, has advanced driver assistance features.

The car has a structure that is 70 percent stiffer in both torsional and front-suspension rigidity and 100 percent stiffer in both front lateral flexural and rear subframe rigidity compared to the previous Outback's platform.

Crash protection has improved because the new body absorbs 40 percent more energy in front and side crashes than the current model.

Standard on all trims is Subaru's Eyesight Driver Assist Technology that now includes adaptive cruise control with lane centering, which provides steering assist when the vehicle veers outside its lane. Additional driver-assist technologies include LED Steering Responsive Headlamps, Reverse Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert and EyeSight Assist Monitor with head-up display.
