You are in a parking lot, and you hear a familiar beep and think: someone just unlocked their Subaru.

Will the Solterra sound like a Subaru when it blows its horn?

I read in some review that Subaru was very conscious of the Subaru-typical sounds, so they took great care to carry over Subaru warning chimes and tones and make them not sound like the Toyota ones.
If that’s the case, they may very well have installed a Subaru horn instead of a Toyota one.

AFAIK, Toyota uses the same security setup as Subaru and the vehicles sound the same when the fob unlocks if you have audible signals enabled.

I believe it was a video - maybe one of the Japanese ones with subtitles - and you could hear the distinction between the Toyota chimes and the Subaru ones, at least in the cabin. Horn may be different.

The alarm set arm alerts are not usually the horn these days, of course. So yea, the actual horn may sound different.
