TOKYO -- Subaru today said it plans to unveil at November's Tokyo Motor Show a new sports tourer concept, a wagon-shaped preview of a production model coming to market next year.
Dubbed the Levorg, the prototype concept is expected to foreshadow the Legacy/Outback, a workhorse of the brand's international lineup that is due for a redesign.
Subaru says the name Levorg combines the words legacy, revolution and touring to herald a "new age of touring cars" for the all-wheel-drive specialist brand.
The car is packed with all of the maker's latest technologies, Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd., the company behind the brand, said today in a statement. The car gets Subaru's next-generation EyeSight pre-crash braking system and a newly developed 1.6-liter direct-injection, turbocharged engine.
A teaser photo of the car shows a low-slung wagon with pronounced fender flares, a rounded nose and a raked back. There are also hints of a mid-hood air scoop -- indicating turbo treatment -- and a wraparound LED lighting to accentuate the silhouette of the headlamps.
At the show, Subaru plans another global debut of a Cross Sport Design Concept. That vehicle has a compact body for easy driving and seat access. Subaru says it encapsulates the brand's future direction in urban crossovers.
