Yes, this is exactly why I wouldn't let the dealer talk me into buying a 2019. He kept saying there was very little difference. Well, when safety is my number one priority by far, I'm going to wait for what is said is a safer platform. I'm sure the Gen 5 is a perfectly safe car, but when an even (supposedly) safer option is available, I'm going to go for that.Your logic is sound. The main objective reason in my opinion for getting the 2020 is the new Subaru Global Platform which is more impact absorbent and quieter and the driver focus feature (if you care about that). All other features are marginal or subjective and a matter of taste.
