So I was fortunate to receive an invitation to head to social media preview day at the Chicago Auto Show as a guest of Subaru, specifically to view the Solterra.

Tempering my excitement will be a bit of a challenge, but if anyone has any requests, feel free to ask me. I don’t know if I’m going to bring a measuring tape, it might be a bit tacky. Photos definitely will follow.

Fantastic photos @Reknid! What was it like sitting inside?
It’s comfortable, even for me at 6’1/259. I was very impressed.
The other competitor’s options were also impressive. Like the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6.
It was a good time.

Glad to hear that it's comfy for you.

Did Toyota bring the bZ4X? If so how was that compared to the Solterra?
How would you rank the Solterra compared to the Ioniq 5 and EV6 inside?

The bz4x wasn’t accessible. But it was on display.
The Ioniq 5 and EV6 were both very attractive. I’ve been in touch with Hyundai customer service (and it was a challenge) about the Ioniq 5 and received an answer of find it if you can and it’s not available anywhere near the Chicagoland area. Good for them that they’re vehicles do the talking for them.

The Solterra and bz4x are so similar, it’s almost a preference thing with a) available colors and b) matte vs gloss finish on the cladding.
The Ioniq 5 and EV6 are so different from each other on the outside but very similar inside in layout. Plus they’re very different than the Solterra/bz4x combo that it’s really hard to rank them. Taking away my bias, I like it Ioniq 5, Solterra, EV6 then bz4x. But it’s really a personal preference. I did ride in the Mustang Mach E as well. It’s really nice as well, but the roadway clearance issue is something I can’t get past.

Thanks for the pix!

How long is the cargo space when the back seats are folded down?

Don't really need the exact figure...

Can somebody take a nap back there in a pinch?
It would be close. Legs slightly bent for me. I debated taking a tape measure with me. I should have, tomorrow will be a it tougher.
