As the first-ever all-electric SUV to feature the capability of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the 2023 Solterra takes this legendary all-weather, all-terrain traction system to exciting new places. The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction and confident handling. Couple that with the smooth linear output of the dual electric motors in the Solterra and you have outstanding traction and capability on all kinds of road and trail surfaces and in almost any weather condition.
The 2023 Solterra has generous ground clearance and short overhangs for easy maneuverability over rough terrain – so you can go places traditional electric vehicles typically can’t reach. Standard dual-function X-MODE with settings for snow/dirt and deep snow/mud lets you choose the perfect traction setting to match conditions for enhanced stability and control, even while going down hills.
Subaru StarDrive offers an enhanced driving experience through Driving Mode Select, which lets you choose from Normal mode for typical trips, Eco mode to conserve battery power, and an extra-responsive Power mode. This advanced technology is engineered with the latest breakthroughs in electric vehicle technology to deliver substantial on-demand torque at all speeds for exciting everyday driving. You get even more control, through paddle shifter-adjustable regenerating braking, and S-Pedal Drive – with additional regenerative braking power to help reduce the fatigue of switching between gas and brake pedals.
It may be the first of its kind, but the 2023 Solterra is still a Subaru at heart. You can trust a Subaru vehicle for miles and miles of adventure – 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today, more than any other brand in the industry.
From top to bottom, every part of the 2023 Solterra is part of an evolution in vehicle engineering. The available split-design roof spoiler isn’t merely a unique design element; it helps manage airflow in concert with other aerodynamic features and the full underbody tray for quiet, efficient, and safe driving regardless of weather and road conditions.
Unique 20-inch alloy wheels feature machine-finished accents and a distinctly modern style.
In every sense, the 2023 Solterra is made for exploring new frontiers. That same bold philosophy went into its cutting-edge exterior design that showcases contrasting protective cladding, striking LED headlights, and clean, modern lines.
With ample passenger space, generous rear legroom, and a flat floor, the 2023 Solterra gives you the airy, open feel of a much larger vehicle. Available StarTex-trimmed upholstery and high-quality, soft-touch materials throughout – along with an available Wi-Fi hotspot – create a connected cabin that’s both modern and full of convenient, comfortable features.
With Solterra Connect, your Solterra and your smartphone make a great team. You can unlock and start select Solterra models using just your smartphone. Remote Start with Climate Control, accessible via the Solterra Connect app, lets you set your preferred temperature so your drive is perfect from start to finish. Advanced Park is an available automatic self-parking system that can be engaged while at the wheel to take the hassle out of parking.
