Subaru's first electric SUV is all about sharp edges and bulging fenders. Although it is undoubtedly modern, it doesn't have the premium veneer of a Volkswagen ID.4 or the sportiness of the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Substantial black cladding hints at the Solterra's off-road capabilities, and there is a smoothed-over front section in place of a traditional grille. The headlights are sleekly styled and the taillights have an elaborate design, but these are stuck on a rather blunt rear aspect. An interesting styling feature from the mid-level trim is the twin liftgate spoilers that Subaru claims help manage airflow.
As standard, the Subaru Solterra SUV comes with LED headlights, black mirror housings, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Upper trims add larger 20-inch alloys, fog lights, roof rails, a power rear liftgate, and a glass roof.
The Subaru Solterra's size and length are typical of a compact crossover. It's not a small car but it's compact enough for use in the city. Although taller than the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Subaru Solterra has a shorter and narrower body. The 2023 Subaru Solterra's dimensions include a length of 184.6 inches, a width of 73.2 inches, a height of 65 inches, and a 112.2-inch wheelbase. As usual for an EV, the Subaru Solterra's weight is a bit of an issue. The Solterra starts at 4,365 pounds and this goes up to 4,455 lbs for the Limited and 4,505 lbs for the Touring.
Although not a hardcore off-roader, the Solterra's 8.3 inches of ground clearance is decent for an EV and makes this vehicle more suited for mild off-roading than most vehicles of its kind.
