The newest cars and SUVs are here at our Subaru dealership in Orange, and though more are coming, they're already making quite the impression. That's not only on our brand's die-hard enthusiasts, either. Authorities throughout the auto industry have begun to weigh in. What did, for instance -- the Internet wing of auto research and valuation experts Kelley Blue Book --appreciate about the 2020 model year?

2020 Subaru Ascent was one of the first to get their attention for its inclusion of EyeSight. That's our brand's exclusive driver-aid suite, comprised of pre-collision brakes, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure, lane sway warning, and a head-up display warning, and it comes standard on every trim. This sort of thing isn't the case, they qualified, for the driver-assistance features offered by many competitors. They also lauded that there was plenty else to make that protection even more comprehensive: available upgrades, after all, include everything from blind-spot detection and reverse auto braking to rear cross-traffic assist, a front-view monitor, and auto high-beam assistance. Just imagine the prospects for safely navigating Charlottesville streets.

Secondly, KBB liked the new rear-seat reminder. This feature can detect if either rear door's been opened and closed within 30 minutes of starting the car, 30 minutes of the SUV running but remaining stationary, or 30 minutes of it being turned off and on while those same doors remain closed. Plus, before you leave the vehicle, a tone sounds, followed by a reminder message in the instrument cluster to remind you to check back seats.

Secondly, 2020 Subaru Legacy got noticed. Its massive 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen stuck out, for one, for its high-def graphics, ease of use, and addition of a strong upscale touch to the otherwise highly accommodating interior. Secondly, the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER flat-four engine got an ovation, with KBB appreciating its 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque for what was tantamount to a "great replacement for the previous flat-six;" the engine, they claimed, was energetic, responsive, and great with fuel -- the promise of Culpeper road-trip enjoyment to come, we're sure.

Plenty more expert reviews of standout features are coming soon, including those for 2020 Subaru Forester and 2020 Subaru Outback, and you can find all these and more in the new 2020 Subaru lineup here at Reynolds Subaru.
