Subaru is still adamant about competing in the three-row SUV segment.

It’s been a few months since we’ve heard reports about Subaru’s three-row SUV that’s currently under development, but the Japanese automaker has reiterated at a Midwest Automotive Media Association event that it is “actively working on a next-generation three-row,” and that the company hasn’t given up on the segment. Previously, Subaru offered the Tribeca model that met an ill fate in late 2013.

Though the company is still in the planning stages for the model, it has decided that it will need to be bigger than the Tribeca and must feature better third-row packaging. In recent years, the three-row crossover and SUV segment has grown significantly and is definitely a market Subaru can benefit in, so long as it can offer something appealing.
