I must say I'm not very fond of Subaru's recent concepts, they all look so ugly, including this one!

09-28-2005, 11:03 AM
thank god the new corporate grille seems to be evolving. i havent seen one tribeca. this design looks almost like a lancia

09-28-2005, 11:30 AM
An overall pleasant shape completely ruined by the detailing. And i thought hatchbacks where supposed to be practical. Why would you design a hatch that opens all the way into half the length of the roof and then not have it come down to the bottom of the bumper? That's just bad design.<br>I'm guessing this is a preview to the new Impreza?

I bloody well hope not Dave.

this has some good/clever cues and odd ones. the whole bottom half is nice and creative, and the front end is pretty nice too, but it has a droopy shape that spoils the styling IMO (not unlike the US civic sedan). those taillights are just odd; i dunno whether they'll grow on me.

First the Hyundai Portico, now this-what, are they gonna start making cellphone cover-like grille inserts for "personalization"?<br>Sheesh <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>It is a nice shape, but the detailing IS rather odd and unsettling.

Oddly enough it reminds me of the Saab 9-x concept from a while back. but ya, like Axis said, subaru your saab is showing. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

I always thought that the man who have designed such wonderful cars as the Fiat Barchetta and Alfa 147 would make some exciting designs for Subaru as well but this is a big disappointment for me.<p>@ndreas

probably best to think of this as work in progress

Subaru have hit a new low with this concept.

09-29-2005, 10:53 AM
Very blob-like, like it's not finished or something. Very poor proportions too, and the detailing as was mentioned.

09-29-2005, 12:09 PM
anyone notice the location of the rear taillamps? really creative, i say.

09-29-2005, 05:10 PM
Interesting, but unpleasent. The door looks pretty bad like that, of course most of the shape does as well. The green interior doesn't work well either. Its unique and quite clever, but rather ugly.

Nose: ok<br>Side: va va va voom!<br>Tail: eew!<p>The Tribeca needs this nose FAST

It reminds me of that Saab wagon concept from a few years back (the 9x, I believe it was). This doesn't work nearly as well.

Inside rocks! Im suprised about the face though...

Everything points out at this being the next Impreza, or at least thats what the press wants us to believe..but i mean, can you seriously think this car will ever survive against the brilliant looking new Evo X? If it was a Lancia maybe,but not as a Subaru
