Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide variety of options, to help you pick and choose those are right for the budget.

The Subaru Viziv 2020 Photo is the bottom trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Subaru Viziv 2020 Photo Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL speakers combined with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Subaru Viziv 2020 Photo stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Subaru Viziv 2020 Photo has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
