Crossover segment is getting more interested for car makers like Subaru and this is proven with the delivery of the Subaru Viziv 2 that was shown at the Geneva Motor Show. Last year, at the same place, we were able to see the original Viziv crossover concept and at the Tokyo Motor Show the Viziv Evolution was delivered.
At this pace it is quite obvious that this vehicle could be offered pretty soon. Even this is only a concept with few features that will not be offered on the production model we can notice changes that leads this car to production. With changes that are offered here we are getting one closer to production model. Compared to previous versions this one offer two more doors and we do expect that the rear doors keep the front hinged opening system.
Looking at the front we can notice changes compared to Evolution concept. Instead of the blacked out headlights we are getting pretty production ready units and if those stay on final design solution it will be a great way to attract many buyers. There is no doubt that with these “eyes” it really looks modern, refined but also aggressive.
Subaru Viziv 2 Concept
One of the things that we really liked but most likely will be changed is those big 20 inch wheels. These are offering fantastic looks to this car but we think that Subaru will definitely need to scale those down, if the higher level trims will be available it still might be an option.
Under the hood we are getting real treat. The all new Viziv 2 concept comes as a hybrid and it combines the 1.6 liter turbocharged four cylinder boxer engine that is paired with three electric motors. There is plug in option also and with this setup we are getting one all wheel drive model that comes with the possibility of fine tuned power and torque distribution.
Review Of Subaru Viziv 2
Each wheel will be treated as independent and as a result we will be getting the best possible control and torque distribution. This is not all since we have great amount of autonomous driving technology delivered with this crossover. There are no details if this will offered in the production ready version.
Models like XV Crosstrek and Forester are great help to the sale results of this Japanese car maker and introduction of small crossover could improve sale results even further. There is no doubt that we like what we see with Subaru Viziv 2 and we are not the only.
