For the second consecutive year, Subaru Corp. is unwrapping an important redesigned vehicle at the New York auto show.
The automaker on Wednesday said it will introduce the redesigned 2020 Outback crossover April 17 in New York.
The Outback, Subaru's top-selling model in the U.S. and one of its oldest nameplates, competes in the increasingly crowded midsize crossover segment, which is down 3.8 percent through March, according to the Automotive News Data Center. The Outback is the best-seller in the segment through March, leading the Honda Pilot, Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe, among others, including two resurrected nameplates, the Honda Passport and the Chevrolet Blazer.
In a teaser photo Subaru released Wednesday, the redesigned Outback is shown parked with a scenic backdrop. A decent amount of the vehicle is visible, including a portion of the headlight, wheels, lower body cladding and what appears to be a cargo basket on the roof, likely a nod to Subaru customers' outdoorsy ethos.
