Dan Neil, transportation writer for the LA Times, talks with Steve Inskeep of NPR’s Marketplace about Subaru’s newest model, and the possibility that it might not be more of the same from Subaru. The B9 Tribeca, which Neil reviewed last week, is slightly more “sexy” than previous Subaru lines, and Neil thinks that it might be getting a little bit astray of the traditional Subaru image, which he compares to both Thoreau and the Unitarian church.

C’mon, it’s a short interview: Go give it a listen.
