Subaru

Have you seen the TV ad Subaru has been running recently?
Apparently the headlights move in the direction you turn the steering wheel. So if you see a deer at the side of the road and aim for it, you'll see the moment of impact.

Subaru

I doubt the the headlight was the only, or even the main, reason the Tucker went away. This is not the only modern application of the concept- several luxury makers offer adaptive headlights.

The more interesting news from Subaru (from a small trailer towing perspective) is the return of a 3-row, mid-sized crossover- the 2018 Ascent- powered by a turbo H4 or H6. Looks like it will have a CVT transmission. Wonder what it will be rated to tow? More important, will they beef up the rear suspension to handle more than 200 pounds tongue weight? 3500/350 would open the 16' class to Subaru fans. It would be nice if, like the Tribeca, it came in both 5- and 7-passenger versions so those who don't need the third row can have the extra space and payload capacity.
