What You Need to Know About the 2020 Outback’s New Tech Features

Although the body of the 2020 Outback is almost identical to the 2019 model, Subaru added new features to Subaru’s EyeSight technology. The new 11.6 inch touchscreen is also available for the 2020 Subaru Outback. And let’s not forget the new LED headlight technology. This vehicle may not look different on the outside, but it has cool new tech features at every turn. Here is all that you need to know about the 2020 Outback’s tech updates.

So, what’s new?

Subaru has a reputation for manufacturing some of the safest vehicles on the road. In addition to Subaru’s standard EyeSight Driver Assist technology, the 2020 Outback also comes equipped with the all-new Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. The 2020 Outback is a part of the collection of vehicles now encompassed by Subaru’s recent promise to individuals, society, and the environment. This potentially life-saving safety feature aligns well with that promise.

Anything to eliminate distractions (both outside and in the car) is a must for drivers of all ages and experience. This car actually tells you to pay attention when you look down to try to text your mom back. The 2020 Subaru Outback technology will help keep you on track when you are driving past those gorgeous vistas on your road trip. You know, the snow capped mountain range that you just can’t tear your eyes away?

The new Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering safety technology can help with that. For obvious reasons, this technology improves safety and gives the driver a smoother ride. The updated Subaru STARLINK technology has automatic collision notification. Subaru again puts the safety of its drivers first. But it’s not just a safety mechanism. STARLINK connects to your smartphone for fun perks like concierge services and climate controlled remote start. 

Advanced visibility is another addition to the Outback. Subaru’s new headlight technology sets a new precedent for LED headlights. The Outback has LED headlights that track the driver’s steering and adjust accordingly to maximize visibility. New and improved night driving makes the Outback even safer. All of these features have been invented, honed, and improved over the years to give Outback drivers the best driving experience possible. Subaru wants to keep more outback on the road for a decade, and more people coming back to buy another one.

What about the big screen?

Perhaps one of the most exciting new tech features in the 2020 Subaru Outback is the 11.6 inch touchscreen option with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Not to mention an array of other multimedia features. The Outback steps boldly onward into the future and stays abreast with cutting edge technology. The big screen is one more convenience that the 2020 Outback’s new technology brings to the table. This touchscreen feature eliminates media limitations and is another reason the Outback is an ideal vehicle for almost anything, from the school pick up line to your next overland adventure.

Brand loyalty runs deep

98% of Outbacks sold within the last decade are still on the road today. Only the 2020 model features the new DriverFocus safety system, updated STARLINK, and 11.6 inch touchscreen multimedia system. As new models emerge within the industry, companies have to keep up the rapidly changing technology that is such a huge part of our daily lives.

This is what you need to know about the 2020 Subaru Outback’s new technology. It’s exciting to see the auto industry race to release new tech, and everything new that emerges is just inspiration and competition. There is surely more to follow releases like this one. Turn your eyes to the horizon, but not for too long or the 2020 Outback may tell you to keep your eyes on the road.
