On April 17, Subaru of America introduced the all-new sixth-generation 2020 Outback at New York International Auto Show.
Built on the Subaru Global Platform, which provides increased safety, dynamics and quietness as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), the Outback will be available in 7 variants (Base, Premium, Limited, Touring, Onyx Edition XT, Limited XT and Touring XT).
The Outback measures 4,860 mm long, 1,855 mm wide, 1,680 mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,745 mm.
Standard on XT models, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine delivers robust all-around performance with 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the standard naturally aspirated 2.5-liter BOXER, with direct injection and nearly 90 percent of its parts new, delivers 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with a Lineartronic CVT featuring an 8-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters.
Standard on all trims is Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology that now includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, which provides steering assist when the vehicle veers outside its lane.
The 2020 Outback will be produced at Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc (SIA), Lafayette Plant and will go on sale at U.S. Subaru retailers this fall.

Subaru Press Release

Feb 08, 2019

On February 7, 2019, Subaru Corporation announced its consolidated net sales for the first nine months of fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 (April 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018) declined 2.5% year-on-year to JPY 2,377.4 billion.
Operating income declined 49.8% year-on-year to JPY 153.7 billion for factors such as an increase in quality-related expenses due to recall campaigns notified in November 2018 and a decrease in consolidated unit sales. Net income attributable to owners of parent fell 22.7% to JPY 118.2 billion.
Consolidated global unit sales of Subaru vehicles decreased 5.0% year-on-year to 762,000 units, as deliveries of the Forester decreased before the launch of its fully-redesigned version and deliveries were adjusted to optimize local inventory levels mainly in the U.S. market.
Full-year forecasts for FY2019 (April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019) are revised from the previous announcement made on November 5, 2018, reflecting factors such as higher raw material costs and decreases in production output and sales volume as a result of production halt at the Gunma manufacturing plant in January, 2019.
The forecasts are as follows: Consolidated unit sales of 996,000 vehicles (down 6.6% year-on-year), net sales of JPY 3,120 billion (down 3.5%), operating income of JPY 185 billion (down 51.2%), net income attributable to owners of parent of JPY 140 billion (down 36.5%).

Executive Director of Tan Chong International revealed that in 2019, the company targets around 5,000 sales units of Subaru in Thailand, doubled from sales units recorded in 2018.
Due to the short supply issue, 2018 sales in Thailand are quite small compared to Taiwan, Malaysia and Philippines. However, as Subaru’s production in Thailand will soon begin, the company said targeted 2019 sales volume in Thailand is not so difficult to achieve.
Also, the company confirmed that the production of Subaru Forester 2019 in Thailand will begin in March 2019 at its Lat Krabang plant.
For Thai market in 2019, the company will focus mainly on sales of this CKD Forester, while other models that will be introduced in 2019 include CBU Outback, BRZ, WRX, and WRX Sti.
