Subaru has provided a teaser of its all-new concept, the “Levorg,” which will debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show in November. The concept will also serve as a preview of the Subaru prototype planned for the Japanese market in 2014.
The name “Levorg,” which left us scratching our heads, is a combination of the words “Legacy”, “Revolution” and “Touring,” according to Subaru.
Subaru claims that the Levorg offers the best in drivability, safety and environmental friendliness, combined with the practicality of a touring car. It is being hyped as a sports tourer.
Additionally, Subaru is showcasing its latest technologies with the Levorg, including the powertrain, which contains the newly-developed 1.6L horizontally-opposed direct injection turbo “DIT” engine. Also included is the next-generation EyeSight with many added safety functions and the newly launched steering support control.
Power numbers were not released however Subaru did provide information on three additional concepts to be revealed at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show along with the Levorg. The Subaru Viziv Evolution Concept, a plug-in hybrid, the Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept, a compact with comfortable interior and abundant luggage space, and the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept, which features seven seats.
Earlier in the month it was confirmed that Subaru would cease production of its unpopular seven-passenger Tribeca in 2014, which leaves us wondering if the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept could be its replacement in the future.
