Subaru showcases the VIZIV Tourer Concept at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. The concept car unites a Symmetrical AWD layout powered by a boxer engine, with Subaru’s wealth of expertise in offering driving performance, practicality and safety. The VIZIV initials indicate the phrase “Vision for Innovation”.
Evoking successive generations of Subaru touring wagon models that have paired superior driving with high levels of practicality, the Subaru VIZIV Tourer Concept has been designed based on Subaru’s shared “Dynamic x Solid” design philosophy. The hexagonal grille is the starting point for a rigid, forward-thrusting body that combines with four powerfully defined fenders to highlight the enjoyment of driving while conveying a sense of security.
At the rear, capacious luggage space offers utility and practicality. The VIZIV Tourer Concept is filled with a crossover mix of values to enhance active lifestyles, expressing the Enjoyment and Peace of Mind that Subaru delivers to its customers.
Subaru has teamed advanced driver-assist technologies scheduled for launch around 2020 with the high performance offered by the boxer engine and Symmetrical AWD to create a tourer symbolizing the Enjoyment and Peace of Mind to be expected of its cars. By also incorporating further enhancements to EyeSight driver-assist technology, radar, and highly accurate GPS and navigation systems, Subaru continues to pursue ultimate levels of safety in the aim of eliminating automobile accidents.
Previously at the 2016 LA Auto show, Subaru unveiled the VIZIV-7 Concept, an SUV concept. With the VIZIV -7 SUV Concept, Subaru is demonstrating its thinking about how big a future Subaru SUV can be.
The Subaru VIZIV-7 SUV had an overall length of 204,7 inches to bring out its SUV characterization to the fullest. Its width of 79.9 inches and height of 72 inches (73.2 inches including roof rail), along with a wheel base of 117.7 inches offer ample space, including headroom, shoulder and legroom, on the inside. Fitted with 265/55 R21 tyre sizes, the Subaru VIZIV-7 concept is a fitting rendition of the SUV of the future.
With full three-row capability and Subaru’s Dynamic x Solid design philosophy, Subaru VIZIV-7 SUV Concept demonstrated the size direction of the all-new three-row midsize SUV. Production for this model is set to embark for the North American market at mid-year.
