Subaru will unveil a new sports tourer prototype, the LEVORG, at Tokyo Motor Show, next month (November), together with two other world premiere concepts.
LEVORG has a sports car feel, offering great drivability, plus safety and environmental credentials combined with the practicality of a touring car.
The name LEVORG comes from a combination of Legacy, revolution and touring. It is currently under development for production model launch in 2014, for the Japan domestic market.
The powertrain features the newly-developed 1.6-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection turbo (DIT) engine. LEVORG also has Subaru’s next-generation EyeSight driver assist system, with many added safety functions and the newly launched steering support control.
Also displayed at Tokyo will be the Cross Sport design concept, Subaru’s vision of the next trend in Sports Utility Vehicles.
It has a compact body with overall length of just 4300 mm, allowing fun driving combined with easy seat access, a comfortable interior, and abundant luggage space.
The third concept is the Crossover 7 – and as the name suggests, it is a seven-seater.
Crossover 7 has a sophisticated urban look but its exterior also projects rough-road driving capability. The interior features smooth tan leather seats, in an elegant and roomy space.
Subaru will also show VIZIV Evolution Concept, previously displayed at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show.
