Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA) began official production of the 2020 Legacy sedan and 2020 Outback SUV today. Each model was driven off the assembly line during a ceremony for employees.
With regards to technological advancements, both models offer standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, available tablet-style high-definition 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK multimedia screen, DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, and new XT models with 260 horsepower. Additionally, they are built on the Subaru Global Platform, which offers increased safety, dynamics and quietness, as well as reduced noise, vibration and harshness.
SIA is Subaru's only manufacturing facility outside of Asia and currently makes the Ascent, Impreza, Legacy and Outback models for North America. Since beginning production in 1989, the plant has increased its annual output of vehicles from 67,000 to approximately 380,000. In April, the facility produced its 4 millionth Subaru vehicle.
The seventh-generation Legacy was first introduced at the Chicago Auto Show in February, while the sixth-generation Outback debuted at the New York International Auto Show in April.
