Subaru has unveiled what appears to be a production-ready Tribeca successor: the Crossover 7 concept. To those outside the North American snowbelt, this is not likely significant news; but it is of interest to those seeking seven seats, all wheel drive and a mid $30k pricetag.
Details are scant, but we do know that power comes from a 2.5 liter boxer through a CVT and Subaru promises that the interior is spacious and luxurious.
Aesthetically, the Crossover 7 is a cut above previous iterations of the Tribeca; though it will be interesting to see what the approach is underneath and inside; the previous version was a combination of Subaru Outback chassis and powertrain mated with some questionable interior finishes, most of which followed the “form over function” cliché.
Subaru touts this as an SUV, but given the off road acuity of the current Outback; the Crossover 7 appears to have diminished ground clearance, perhaps attracting more of the Toyota Venza crowd than the Outback crowd.
A new face in the Subaru SUV lineup is a seven-seater crossover.
Not only does SUBARU CROSSOVER 7 CONCEPT have a sophisticated urban look but its exterior also projects rough-road driving capability. The interior features original smooth tan leather seats that will bring out the desire to go for a drive in any adult. The elegant and roomy space will manage to provide “driving enjoyment and peace of mind” at all times.
