Default What Did I See Today?

I was out driving around today and saw some test vehicles that looked like Subarus.

Of course, the fronts and backs were taped black, but not that much.

Anyway, I saw a little convoy of 3 vehicles. The fronts looked like a cross between the 04 and 06 Forester. The flanks were vaguely like the Tribeca. The back was like a Forester.

Overall, the size was somewhere between a Forester and a Tribeca.

I'm not sure these were Subarus. They had twin tail pipes, but the pipes were skinny. There was a very un-Subaru like handle on the rear hatch, like a Kia. The rear suspension looked more like a Ford Escape. The ground clearance was definitely lower than a Forester.

I'm guessing this was a Kia with rip-off Subaru design cues. Either that or the next gen Forester will get the H-6.

You can all line up now to kick me for not having a camera.

It was the 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Sure looked like a Subaru to me. I think I need to lie down. That was a viscious kick in the head.
