Top 4 Things To Expect From The 2020 Subaru Outback

The Subaru Outback, despite its weird position in the market (it’s a wagon with the off-road capabilities of a crossover), remains to be Subaru’s best-selling vehicle in the United States. It’s targeted for people who like the space of a wagon but do not necessarily like driving a crossover. Though the current model is still a piece of work, Subaru is scheduled to introduce a next-generation Outback to keep it competitive with its rivals.

1. New Platform

Every new model from Subaru will now use the Subaru Global Platform. The Outback and its Legacy siblings are no different. The new platform is expected to have increased rigidity in the body and chassis. There are also stronger joints between parts. These changes will make handling the Outback easier and it will also improve the ride quality for passengers. It promises to have less noise and vibration in the cabin, which is what the new Impreza and Forester saw in theirs when they migrated to the new platform.

2. New Engine Options

The current Outback offers a 2.5-liter boxer-four that makes 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque and a 3.6-liter boxer-six with 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. The new Outback might get rid of the six-cylinder option to make the vehicle more fuel efficient. Subaru might continue selling the 2.5-liter engine, though it will be cranked up to produce more power. New Subaru models will also come with direct injection.

3. Minor Design Changes

Subaru will make minor design changes on the new Outback. The updates might include a slightly redesigned front end that will resemble other Subaru models such as the Forester and the Ascent. It will also grow bigger, producing more space in the cabin for passengers to relax.

4. Prices And Timeline

Subaru releases a new generation of Outback every five years. We saw them in 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. We expect to see the new-generation Outback for the 2020 model year. That means it should begin selling the 2019 models this summer.

The current Outback has a selling price of $27,320 but prices will, of course, increase for the new model.

3 Major Stuff You Should Know About The 911 Speedster Concept II

What started as a concept from the folks from Stuttgart has evolved into the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept II that was introduced at the Paris Motor Show. Now, Porsche will develop the 911 Speedster Concept II as a special edition model that will be limited only to 1,948 units.

The production of the 911 Speedster Concept II starts in the first half of 2019. Porsche has not released the pricing details yet but we expect that to be revealed in the next few months.

Exterior

The exterior of the 911 Speedster Concept II is the same as the concept the German automaker first introduced back in June 2018, the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept. Both versions are based on the 911 Cabriolet 4 Carrera with elements of the 911 GT3 on the chassis and the carbon fiber composite.

The 911 Speedster Concept II has a shorter and more rakish windscreen, closely resembling the 356 1500 Speedster. There’s a carbon fiber rear cover with double bubble design and a floating third brake with “Porsche” lettering.

The car showed at the Paris Motor Show bears the Guards Red paint finish, which has a historical significance to Porsche. It also comes with 21-inch center-lock wheels with a cross-spoke design, tinted daytime running lights, a lightweight tonneau cover, and mirror caps made with black chrome and platinum.

Interior

The 911 Speedster Concept II has similar elements with its predecessor. There are carbon fiber bucket seats that are wrapped in black leather with eye-catching red accents. To save on weight, there will be no infotainment system. There’ll be just an empty space in the center stack. There are air-conditioning vents in the cabin but it remains unclear if there will be an A/C system in the production version.

Drivetrain

The 911 Speedster Concept II will arrive with a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that produces 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission that Porsche received from its own GT division responsible for engineering the special edition Speedster’s exhaust system and titanium tailpipes.
