Subaru has detailed the new Subaru Viziv Performance concept ahead of its official unveiling at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show being held from October 27 to November 5, 2017. It shows off an impressive exterior and closely resembles the WRX with its sporty front bumper, carbon fiber accents, ram air hood, distinctive grille and hawk-eye headlights.
It also gets a carbon fiber roof, ventilated carbon finer fender flares and sporty bodywork. The Subaru Viziv Performance concept sits on 20” ‘Y’ spoke alloy wrapped in 245/40 rubber tyres and well sculpted wheel arches. Its rear end is noted with an aggressive diffuser, four tail pipe exhaust system and LED tail lamps with a trunk mounted spoiler. Subaru Viziv measures 4,630mm long, 1,950mm wide and 1,430mm high with a 2,730mm wheelbase.
Viziv, a contraction of ‘vision for innovation’ has been used by Subaru to show off a series of concepts which also includes a three row SUV which came in as the Ascent for US markets. It gets a symmetrical all wheel drive system and Subaru is also working on an advanced driver assistance system slated to be launched sometime in 2020. This also makes its way into the concept along with EyeSight System and an accurate navigation system.
Viziv Performance interiors reveal large portrait oriented central touchscreen with multimedia and climate control function along with a digital instrument cluster. The five seater car is based on Subaru’s ‘Dynamic X Solid’ design language. Its exact powertrain details continue to remain under wraps.
As with most concepts, the indication could simply be us expecting too much too soon. Viziv, which centres around vision for innovation lives up to its moniker atleast on stage for now. This sport sedan draws inspiration from the brand’s racing capability. It’s still bought to life by a petrol engine unlike concepts that run on electric power in recent time.
