2020 Outback Cargo Space???

Anyone know the real answer for how much cargo space (behind second row) the 2020 Outback will have? When 1st introduced in NY, it was being reported to have 32.5 cf, then shortly after, I was reading 37.2cf on Subaru's website. Now today, I see Subaru's website showing 32.5cf.


I'm dizzy, does anyone have the real answer???

Subaru's website lists 32.5 ft3 with seats up and 75.7ft3 with the seats down for the new 2020. The 2019 Outback has 35.5ft3 with the seats up and 73.3ft3 with the seats down. So they increased the total space for the new model, but probably pushed the rear seats back a few inches for more leg room which made the seat up space a little smaller.



As far as Subaru changing the number on their site, I do not know about that!

That's an interesting change. I'd be surprised if they added more legroom in the back. One of my largest passengers recently commented how roomy it felt back there.

Anyway, sounds like a typo since the number has changed back to what was first reported.

Perhaps the second row will slide front/back making the cargo space behind the 2nd row a variable number???

Hard to believe they would take a step backwards as far as cargo space with the seats up. My seats are almost always down so the total cargo space is what is important to me but I would think losing space behind the seats would be a pretty big deal for many. Leg room has always seemed pretty good in the Outback so I don't know why they would sacrifice rear cargo space to add more leg room.

Cargo space with the seats up is shrinking due to the full size spare.

I was excited when I saw the 20' Outback and was hoping the cargo space would get bumped up a bit, so was disappointed when is read 32.5cf, then excited to see 37.2 posted on the website. I am now disappointed once again to see 32.5 😕. If 32.5 holds true, it's a deal breaker for me...

Just curious, what would you buy instead?

If they slid the seats back a little further that would make it harder to use all the space with the seats down. A lot of the usable floor space is already lost due to the gap between the front seats and the seats folded down without coming up with something to fill that gap. That was 1 thing I liked about my 2013 TDI sportwagon. You removed the rear headrests and the seats folded down flush with the back of the front seats. I could carry more in my sportwagon than I can my bigger Outback! Then VW changed the design and the seats didn't fold down flat and had a gap. I might be driving a gas Sportwagon if VW hadn't done that.

Not sure yet, but I think an 18' or 19' OB will be on the short list along with a Honda Passport and possibly a Jeep GC, but the long term reliability of the Jeep is a concern.


I am still hopeful that the 32.5 is a mistake and Subaru has not taken a step backwards in their rear cargo space capacity...
