2023 Subaru Solterra vs. Its Competition

2023 Subaru Solterra
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Solterra sits in the shadow of the nearly identical Toyota BZ4X with a design that leans more to the RAV4 despite its Forester-like dimensions.

Like Toyota and Subaru, Hyundai and Kia tap into the same EV-development resources, but the retro-chic style of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 could never be mistaken for the more futuristic Kia EV6.

The Solterra’s raked rear windshield and short nose could be mistaken for the Ford Mustang Mach-E, but Ford’s electric pony car has more drivetrain options and up to 300 miles of range.

The Solterra has conservative driving manners, much like the VW ID.4, but the VW has a roomier, more spacious interior, but a pesky infotainment interface.
