Should You Buy A Certified Pre-Owned Subaru Outback Or Wait For New 2020 Model?
How much money can you save buying a certified Preowned car? According to Auto Trader's calculations, the average transaction price of a new 2019 Subaru Outback is about $32,200, while a 2015-2018 Certified Preowned Outback is valued at around $26,500. That’s a $5,700 savings.
Auto Trader’s list of 10 must-shop certified pre-owned cars includes the popular Subaru Outback. When it comes with a manufacturer-backed certified pre-owned warranty, it can give you up to 100,000 miles of coverage. So you won’t have to worry about unforeseen costs typically associated with a used car.
Auto Trader picks vehicles that are rated high in safety, which Outback is a leader, and it also offers the latest design despite being a few years old. It will look newer and your neighbors will never know if you are that really that vain and you care what they think. Here’s a better option if you can wait a year.
Consider waiting one more year
Here’s something to consider before you rush out to buy a certified pre-owned 2015- 2018 Subaru Outback. Subaru will bring an all-new 2020 Subaru Outback to showrooms early next year. It will get a complete redesign and come with even more standard safety tech, likely a new turbocharged engine, improved fuel mileage, and a new architecture that will feature improved driving dynamics, and a larger, quieter cabin. The price will be higher than a current 2019 model, but the technology upgrades will be significant.
When we take a look at the redesigned 2020 Subaru Legacy sedan we get an idea of what improvements are coming on the 2020 Subaru Outback.

If it were up to us, we would wait a year and get the newest 2020 Subaru Outback that will feature a multitude of improvements including the new Subaru Global Platform. If you can’t wait, Subaru still offers a good certified pre-owned warranty on a 2015-2018 Outback, with 7 years and 100,000 miles of coverage from the date of original sale. This allows for good peace of mind and you save about $5,700 over a new 2019 model.
