The Subaru Levorg Concept points directly at Subaru’s new, bold design direction. Slightly dilute the Subaru Levorg Concept and you have, what I suspect is, the next Legacy/Outback design. Far less bulbous and inconsistent in design language over the current models, the aesthetics smack of Mazda’s Kodo design language – and that’s not a bad thing.
The name could be better…
“The Levorg concept hints at a new vehicle currently under development for market launch in Japan in 2014. The name ‘Levorg’ comes from a combination of the words ‘Legacy’, ‘Revolution’ and ‘Touring’, and the concept will blend the practicality of a tourer and the stylish design and feel of a sports car.
The Levorg will also feature an all-new 1.6-litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine with direct injection turbo (DIT) technology. The Subaru-developed engine is designed to offer smooth performance and greater environmental efficiency. The new engine will also be on show on the Subaru motor show stand as a technology exhibit.” – – Subaru Media
I will stay on top of this story and post more details the minute I find them!
The Subaru Levorg Concept will debut with the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept – a vehicle that will replace the Subaru Tribeca. I believe the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept will share a ton of mechanical and body components with the upcoming Toyota Highlander. Don’t believe me? See for yourself!
Is this a Toyota Highlander replacement AND a Subaru 7-seat crossover!? Look carefully and you decide!
