Looks like the designer got a hand tremor when he was designing the headlights. (and lesser extent tail lights) Just unnecessarily awful.

Is this the way forward with interiors? Large tablets to replace most interior controls?

Pretty much. Tesla shows that car as smartphone (in multiple aspects, not just in terms of infotainment interface) sells, so you can't blame other auto makes from jumping onboard. Probably also makes upgrading the infotainment system much easier, I imagine.

A few official pics (sorry, I've never been able to figure out how to upload photos directly):

It looks, not surprisingly, like a gigantic Impreza. The boxer 6 goes away, but thankfully a turbo 4 is optional.

Something about the interior surfacing is giving me major Chevy vibes.

Given the feature set, I imagine the Outback version will con't to be ridiculously popular.

Agreed. This will continue to be a huge success on for the Outback.

Terrible exterior refresh. Head and tail lights are grossly mis-shapen. Black plastic along the front bumper is awkward and devoid from the rest of the front. Some of the worst wheels I've seen all year.

The interior is its only hit.

This is on an all new platform and they really couldn't do better than this????

I'm assuming that the 59.1" in the first line is height?

To put that into perspective, the GLA (which admittedly is probably among the lowest riding of all crossovers) is 58.8" tall....

The GLA is lower than some regular cars, including those taller mid 2000s hatchbacks like a Peugeot 307 , any generation Honda Fit or even a Fiat Panda (1,55m). From size alone, it does - to me - not qualify as a cross over, tbh., nothing below 1,5m should.
