I’m loving the design and look of the car.
Of course, one of the first questions I have is: what is Subaru doing for the Infotanment Center, and will it be kept up to date? Unlike the shambles that are tne systems in the last two models of Outback / Legacy, and others?
If Subaru plans on getting into what is effectively the minivan market, they are going to need to actually give some real consideration to the fine details for that infotainment system. Honda and Toyota crush them in this area, and the lack of updates is a serious issue.
In my case I dont think I’d even consider purchasing an Acent with a new engine design for three years.
After the 2013MY 2.5L FB engine issue, where the PZEV engines where burning oil at an alarming rate, and people went through multiple engines; we went through three (3) of them and it was far from painless getting Subaru to fix our Legacy with that new engine...
Looks like a great car, but I’d stay away until it’s been out for a few years; Subaru has a habit of issues with new engines and a poor record of keeping the infortainment center updated.
Oh, and dont get me started at not being able to turn off Starlink’s ability to send telemetry to Subaru...
Love the concept, but im sure it falls into the “wait until its been out forma few years” category.
