Subaru hasViziv has been in tears for the past few yearsDifferent versions of the sports concept have been released since 2013, each exploring broadly similar themes to those seen in the traditional range of cars. Think: Crosstrek, WRX, Impreza, Forester, and JDM Levorg wagons. But forTokyo Motor Show 2023 – now officially known as the Japan Mobility Show—— Subaru’s sports travel conceptClicks Different.
First of all, it doesn’t look like a typical contemporary Subaru, with wide horizontal lights (be they daytime running lights or blurred headlights) and a slightly larger central section, giving it the appearance of an auxiliary light – although the lower half is the front end being completely black, So it’s hard to know. The headlights blend into the interesting woodwork, highlighting the angular, beveled edges of the semicircular fenders.
Above, the elegant coupe silhouette shows the parabolic arch of the side windows, decorative strips on the C-pillars and thin blades for the side-view cameras. Finally, in our enhanced image, is there any trace of clumping in the tire tread? This may be an all-terrain, all-wheel-drive sports coupe, and if so, it’s certainly more of a design exercise than a preview of a specific car.
Subaru’s vague description includes “electricity” and “go anywhere” in “extraordinary environments” and embodies the changing meaning of “Subaru’s sporting values.” From the word soup, it’s a reasonable guess it will have all-wheel drive, and it will likely be a pure electric car meaning at least a dual-motor powertrain. There is a certain level of all-terrain ability that comes from the phrase “go anywhere.”
The coupe-like body style (or actual coupe) might lead people to think this is some sort of preview of the BRZ’s successor, but it’ll be a while before we see the full concept (which was revealed in a dark moment teaser style). It’s hard to say. We’ll say this: This isn’t another Viziv, and that’s probably a good thing.
