Given crash test standards/pedestrian safety and the quest for better MPGs (aerodynamics) there really aren't that many ways to style a front end anymore.What surprises me is how so many of the SUVs all look the same and have for the past 10 years. Our "new" 2008 looks as new as most others style-wise.
No, I do not think so. Look also at the rocker panel. Then account for the length of the wheelbase and the overall footprint and this Subaru is not going on any but the smoothest of 4x4 trails. Unless, of course, they add adjustable suspension which I do not think they have any reason to do. I would still expect it to rock on dirt roads, including in bad weather.Anyone else think, that in general, short front overhangs look "better" than long ones? I do, and wish Subaru would take this strategy across the entire product line.
That is how I feel about our 2006 model one....I am glad that it is not aging quickly like other cars.What surprises me is how so many of the SUVs all look the same and have for the past 10 years. Our "new" 2008 looks as new as most others style-wise.
imo right around fall next year values of tribeca will be so low it will be almost funny if it wasnt sad.Yeah baby this screams 2006....guess mine will triple in value now.
YES! I could have made those same comments. Those are awfully superb pictures to have "leaked out" - OEM's fire or demote people over that kind of thing, because it's not terribly hard to figure out who took or acquired the pictures. So it's anybody's guess what these actually represent...Given crash test standards/pedestrian safety and the quest for better MPGs (aerodynamics) there really aren't that many ways to style a front end anymore.
My impression initially is that it's just a larger Outback in terms of styling. Nothing wrong with that, but remember people, this could just be a test mule, even though it looks well put together. We won't really know until they actually release it at an auto show and Subaru themselves say "this is the production model and this is what it's called."
