The Viziv Performance Concept previews a curvy next-generation look that may feed into a redesigned Legacy sedan.
TOKYO -- Subaru goes emotional and dynamic with a new semiautonomous performance concept sedan to be unveiled at next month's Tokyo auto show.
The Viziv Performance Concept previews a curvy next-generation look that may feed into a redesigned Legacy sedan, due for an overhaul as early as 2019.
The car 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 trademark 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, both in the front and rear. A sliver-thin sideview mirror completes the look. Subaru did not offer details about the Viziv's powertrain.
Also on the Subaru stand at Tokyo will be a Japan-market limited edition the WRX STI sports sedan and a BRZ STI Sport version of the rear-wheel-drive coupe, which will get a 100-unit run.
