The 2023 Subaru Solterra will be available in Premium, Limited and Touring trim levels, and it will be well equipped from the start. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard, while Limited and Touring models get a larger 12.3-inch display. Regardless of size, both screens work with Toyota’s latest infotainment system, which supports Google Maps navigation and is compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system is easy to use, has nice graphics and offers an “intelligent” assistant that responds to commands when told “Hey Subaru.” The assistant can change some settings, such as temperature, and can turn on the windshield wipers, but cloud connectivity for Google Maps navigation requires a subscription. The service is free for the first year, but owners will have to pay a monthly fee after that.

Based on our first driving experience, we would choose a subscription. For example: “Hey Subaru, take me to the charger,” and a list of nearby charging stations will appear on the screen. If you unsubscribe, the feature will be disabled and there will be no estimate of the distance to your destination when using built-in Google Maps. Subaru hasn’t announced how much it plans to charge for cloud use, but Toyota prices its service at $16 a month or $160 a year. We expect Subaru prices to be similar.

The cabin is well equipped, in addition to fun technology. We drove a base Solterra Premium model and were pleased with the number of features it had—heated seats, dual-zone air conditioning, and four USB ports come standard (including two for the second row). We’re not big fans of touchscreen controls for the air conditioning, but appreciate the hard buttons for raising or lowering the temperature and adjusting the fan speed. Overall, the cabin is spacious for both passengers and luggage. We found the second-row seats to be a little low, but the enormous legroom compensates for the high knee position. The seats fold flat to allow taller items to be placed in luggage. You can also use the small compartment under the cargo floor for storage. However, Solterra is running out of space as Subaru has used the space to install inverters and EV cables under the hood.

Minor complaint: The cluster of indicators is located on the dashboard, but is far from the driver, and the steering wheel partially blocks the view. Unlike most cars where the speedometer is visible through the steering wheel, this layout is designed so that drivers can see it above the steering wheel. But in our case it didn’t work. We’re also not fans of the piano black trim used on the center console: as usual, it’s shiny and easily smudged by fingerprints.
