|The Subaru XV Concept, which embodies the marque’s next Dynamic X Solid design, has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. Its compact body is presented in an expressive form of a Crossover, and a quality feel beyond its class.|
The XV Concept’s front, sides, and rear are seamlessly joined in the Dynamic X Solid surface structure, creating a three-dimensional and solid body that is a feature of Subaru styling. The dynamism is enhanced by well-placed character lines on the compact body shape. Furthermore, the design expression of “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind”, the value that Subaru provides to its customers, is fully pursued within the limits of the compact crossover model body size.
At the front. the Subaru look is seen in the Wide & Low stance with its sporty impression, and in the unified three-dimensional structure extending from the hexagonal grille that symbolizes the Subaru identity to the hawk-eye headlights echoing a Boxer engine motif. The front face plays the role of starting point from which the front flows via the sides to the rear, with each part uniting into a solid form. A pleasing balance of classy silver, matte black, and active orange on the strong shapes of the hexagonal grille and the bumper expresses the diverse character of this crossover vehicle.
To the side, rich inflection of the character line extending from the front fender to the door panels and rear shoulder, and the line rising energetically toward the rear from the lower door panel, give dynamism to the solid body surface. The powerfully extended fender flares express the reliability of Subaru All-Wheel Drive. Meantime, the matte-black cladding running from the front bumper over the wheel arches and side sills to the rear bumper creates a dynamic form expressing all the enjoyment to be expected from a crossover vehicle. From the rear. the combination lights sharing the same motif as the headlights, as well as the powerful shoulders over the rear fenders thrusting all the way toward the rear, express a Wide & Low stance similar to the front. Like the front bumper, the rear bumper features a pleasing balance of classy silver, matte-black, and active orange to express the diverse character of this crossover vehicle.
In the area of functionality essential to a Subaru car, excellent aerodynamic performance is teamed with the ample road clearance and luggage space required of a crossover vehicle, achieving blend of function and style.
Quality feel is raised by the “Glacier Khaki Silica” exterior color, a blue-gray new color exclusive to this Concept that evokes the glacier ice.
