The Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver part # 76227 on the 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon requires 4 inch by 4-1/2 inch square cut out on the bottom/center of the fascia. To find the center of the fascia measure 2 inches (toward the driver side of the fascia) from the middle of the hole on the fascia and mark the centerline. Make a mark 2 inches on each side of the centerline. Measure 4-1/2 inches from the forward edge of the fascia. I have attached a photo for your reference. I have also attached an installation video.

The fascia trimming is required on all of the concealed cross tube design hitches for the Subaru Outback Wagon because the receiver tube sticks out from the fascia. The visible cross tube hitches do not require fascia trimming but do require drilling into the frame so it is really just a choice of which modification you would rather do.
