TOKYO — Subaru's Viziv Performance Concept previews a curvy next-generation look that may feed into redesigns of the Legacy or WRX sedans, both due for overhauls as early as 2019.
The car, to debut this month at the Tokyo auto show, is the latest in a series of Subaru Viziv concepts that take their name from "vision for innovation."
The Tokyo offering will combine Subaru's latest safety technology with the fun-to-drive characteristics of a true sport sedan, the Japanese carmaker said.
The Viziv Performance Concept also will embody Subaru's vision for next-generation autonomous driving systems built upon the brand's EyeSight safety technology.
Subaru has said it targets Level 2 autonomy by around 2020.
A teaser image of the Viziv Performance Concept shows a rear-slung sedan with a short rear deck, muscular fenders and wavy side creasing. The wheel well arches get protruding lips and what appear to be brake vents in the front and rear. A sliver-thin sideview mirror completes the look. Subaru offered no details about the Viziv's powertrain.
