After a teaser not too long ago, Subaru has unveiled its Viziv Performance Concept in full at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. It embodies the future vision of Subaru’s commitment to create safe and dynamic vehicles for its customers. The company also hinted that the concept car will be a successor model that features “sedan body, symmetrical AWD and horizontally opposed engine” No prizes for those who guessed it.
Standing at 4,630 mm in length, 1,950 mm in width, 1,430 mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,730 mm in wheelbase, the Viziv Performance is a tad larger than the current-generation WRX sedan (L:4,595 mm, H:1,795 mm, W:1,475 mm and WB:2,650 mm). Although it is a given that the ridiculously flared arches will never make it to the final design.
Up front, the concept car wears a new front grill and 3D Hawkeye headlamps, mimicking the horizontally opposed layout of Boxer engines. Carbon parts are applied generously at the bumpers, fenders and roof. Over at the back the concept car gets a pair boomerang shaped taillamps complemented by the aggressive quad-tailpipes.
Subaru aims to equip the sedan with their next-generation Advanced Driver Assist systems in line with the company’s vision in becoming the Number One brand in overall safety. The new systems are currently being developed at Subaru’s new testing facility in Hokkaido, Japan.
