As a car buyer, it is easy to get caught up in the details as you learn more and more about vehicles such as the 2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR and the 2020 Subaru Outback. Klamath Falls Subaru is here to help you navigate the many options available. 


Why you should consider the 2020 Subaru Outback in Klamath Falls OR

The biggest change for the new Outback will be its new underpinnings. It will shift to the same new global platform as the Legacy, Impreza, Crosstrek, Forester, and Ascent, which promises increased rigidity, sharper handling, and improved refinement.

A turbocharged Outback also seems a sure bet to return to the lineup, replacing the old six-cylinder 3.6R engine. This model is likely be called the Outback XT and use the same turbocharged 260-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine first introduced in the Ascent three-row SUV. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine with 182 horsepower will remain the base engine, and all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will be standard on all models.

Based on specifications released, here's what you can expect:

  • The all-new 2020 Outback will ride on a more-rigid and crash-worthy Subaru Global Platform that will now underpin almost all of Subaru's vehicles
  • The new base engine with 182 horsepower has more power than the previous engine with 175 horsepower
  • An optional turbocharged engine will accelerate the Outback from 0-60 in less than seven seconds
  • A large tablet-style 11.6" infotainment system will be available on select trims
  • Driver Focus was added to the Subaru Eyesight system

Otherwise, the new Outback should come with a vibe similar to what it has always had, retaining its rugged image and practical mien.

Why you should consider the 2020 Toyota RAV4 in Klamath Falls OR

The 2020 Toyota Rav4 is a crossover that may be a contender for SUV of the year. There is an available hybrid version for those environmentally-minded drivers or for anyone who wants to save money at the gas pump. This four-door SUV offers plenty of room for passengers or cargo. If you want the utility of an SUV in a smaller package, the 2020 Toyota Rav4 in Klamath Falls OR could be an option, however, the Subaru Outback beats it in cabin space.

The Toyota Rav4 has been totally redesigned for the 2020 model year. The exterior look received a complete overhaul. The wheelbase is longer this year, coming in at 105.9 inches, but the total length is shorter for 2020 at 180.9 inches long. This results in a better ride and easier maneuverability. The cabin provides more room than the 2018 models too. Overall, the interior and ride quality seem more comfortable than in previous models. Though these improvements have been made, the Subaru Outback is still the clear winner in this category.

Toyota is confident the 2020 RAV4 TRD Off-Road will improve the RAV's trail-driving capabilities. Starting with a RAV4 Adventure, which already offers 8.6 inches of ground clearance, all-wheel drive, and selectable multi-terrain traction control, Toyota upgraded the suspension and added new wheels and tires
