The 2020 Outback will start at $27,655 while the Legacy will begin at $23,645. According to Subaru, that’s an increase of $300 and $200, respectively — though the actual difference over last year’s models is a few bucks higher.

According to research firm Edmunds, the 3.3-percent increase over 2017’s second quarter was also a record.  (Read More…)
