2023 Subaru Solterra EV SUV comes standard with a new Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that now channels smooth linear output from Subaru StarDrive® Technology, providing outstanding traction and capability in all kinds of weather and terrain. Subaru StarDrive delivers substantial on-demand torque at all speeds with power and driver-selectable regenerative modes.
The all-new Solterra is equipped with Dual-Function X-MODE® with Snow / Dirt and Deep Snow / Mud modes. The system also features Grip Control and Downhill Assist Control for increased performance in low-friction and off-road conditions. With 8.3 inches of ground clearance and 215 horsepower and 249 lb.-ft. of torque from front and rear electric motors, Solterra provides versatility in both off-road and city driving.
With up to 125 cubic feet of passenger and cargo space, generous leg room, and a nearly flat floor, the 5-passenger SUV gives occupants the airy, open feel of a much larger vehicle. The Solterra offers up to 29 cubic feet of useable cargo space behind the rear seats, and also features a 60/40 folding seatback and two-position load floor for maximum cargo and passenger flexibility. The wide 41.3-inch rear gate opening with low liftover height allows easy loading and unloading. Standard fixed cross bar mounting points add more cargo-carrying options for owners’ adventures.
The new Solterra offers a suite of standard EyeSight® driver-assist technologies including Emergency Steering Assist, Intersection Collision Avoidance Support, Pre-Collision Brake Assist, Lane Departure Prevention, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Lane Tracing Assist.
Additional standard active safety features include Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Rear Camera Detection with Pedestrian Warning. The standard Parking Support Brake feature can apply the vehicle’s brakes if an obstacle is detected while reversing.
For the first time in a Subaru, a 360-Degree Panoramic View Monitor provides an overhead view of the vehicle for better all-around situational awareness. Also new for Subaru, Solterra is equipped with standard Safe Exit Assist. The new safety feature notifies occupants, before exiting the vehicle, of approaching vehicles with an audible and visual warning.
Standard multi-element LED Headlights include Automatic High Beam that encourages drivers to maximize the use of high beams without the worry of impairing oncoming traffic. The new SUV comes standard with driver and front passenger frontal airbags; side curtain airbags; side pelvis/torso airbags; and driver and front passenger knee airbags.
Solterra is equipped with an all-new multimedia system with an available 12.3-in touchscreen. The new system comes standard with wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android Auto™. A wireless charging phone dock is available for the center console.
