One Safety Feature You Want But Can't Get On The New Subaru Outback
Subaru is bringing more safety features on the all-new six-generation 2020 Outback, but they don’t offer an Active Driving Display. The new SUV/Crossover offers customers standard safety-first features like EyeSight driver assist, surround-view cameras with blind-spot detection, and visual indicators in the side mirrors but it doesn’t offer you a head-up display (HUD) system that projects information onto the windshield.
This would give the new 2020 Subaru Outback another level of safety for customers allowing you to keep your eyes on the road. Torque News has driven non-luxury cars like the Mazda6 sedan, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Toyota Prius and these vehicles all have price tags under $40,000. So why not the new 2020 Outback XT, Limited or Touring models?

What was once exclusively available in luxury vehicles now come standard even on some mainstream brand cars. Hyundai, Mazda, and Toyota are offering these head-up displays (HUD) like the one in the latest Toyota Prius with an MSRP of $32,200.
Mazda is another non-luxury brand that offers HUDs in several of its vehicles. But the Japanese automaker doesn’t embed expensive components in the dash or use a special windshield. Instead, they use a thin plastic lens that folds down when not in use in the Mazda3 ($27,900) and Mazda6 ($29,500) models.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 small SUV is also available with Active Driving Display that projects information onto the windshield including safety system warnings, vehicle status, current speed, and route guidance. Because the most pertinent information for the driver is positioned in your line of sight, you can minimize distractions and it could keep you from getting in an accident.
The new 2020 Subaru Outback falls short and the Japanese automaker should give their customers even more safety features like a head-up display if they want to be the overall safety leader. Safety is a core value for the brand but they miss the mark in the all-new sixth-generation model.
