One important area people look at in a new SUV these days is fuel economy. We live in a world where there's an increasing push to rid ourselves of fossil fuels, which is driving gas prices through the roof for people who still drive regular petrol-engine vehicles. While crossovers are still ruling the road, gas can be expensive, thus drivers are turning to more efficient vehicles.

Drivers all over the Doylestown, Warminster, and Philadelphia regions love the Subaru Outback. It combines a luxurious ride and outstanding technology with great fuel economy. This is why the team at Fred Beans Subaru has created this 2020 Subaru Outback MPG guide.

Let's check out what you can expect in terms of Subaru Outback MPG, and where you can go to get behind the wheel to take a test drive. Just keep reading!

Subaru Outback EPA-Estimated Ratings

The 2020 Subaru Outback is available in five trims offering two engine types to choose from. Each is paired with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, as well as a Lineatronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).

This drivetrain comes equipped with adaptive control, an 8-speed manual mode for personalized driving, and paddle shifters. Additionally, this advanced piece of machinery also focuses on elevating efficiency across all trim levels. 

However, since there are two engines for the 2020 Outback, fuel economy changes depending on which configuration you opt for. Let's take a look at the two more closely.

2020 Outback Miles Per Gallon

Standard in the Outback is the 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine. Four of the five trims are powered by this SUBARU BOXER® powertrain that offers a lower center of gravity for less drag, as well as an active valve control system. When equipped with this engine, your Subaru Outback will be able to rev up to 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque with ease. This leaves you with an estimated fuel economy of 26 city/33 highway MPG.

Also available on the top-tier trim of the Subaru Outback is the 2.4L turbocharged DOHC engine that elevates both power and strength under the hood. This upgraded powertrain ups the ante with a total horsepower of 260 and 277 lb-ft of torque for some extreme vigor on the road.

Due to its ample power, you'll see a slight shift in estimated fuel economy with the engine, though still ultimately impressive. Coming in at 23 city/30 highway MPG, you'll be filling up the tank less often.
