Subaru gives sneak peak of XV Concept

Subaru gives sneak peak of XV Concept

Next week is a busy one for Subaru with the scheduled debut of two new vehicles for the Japanese carmaker.

At the Auto Shanghai 2011 show, Subaru is ready to drop the covers off its XV crossover concept car that has been teased in a single, darkened image this week.

While the silhouette image leaves some mystery, the XV is a preview of the 2012 Impreza XV,  the high-riding version of the Impreza Hatchback already sold in some markets in the current generation. While Subaru are staying tight-lipped at this stage the XV will feature Subaru’s symmetrical All Wheel Drive system and likely a boxer engine. This will allow the XV genuine crossover ability.

In terms of design there’s four doors, highly styled headlamps, big concept car wheels and the overall  shape of a crossover, albeit one with a raked back profile.

The XV Crossover will be unveiled on April 19 – in the same week that new generation Impreza debuts at the New York International Auto Show (it will be unveiled two days later).

Wallis Dumper, Managing Director, Subaru of New Zealand, said: “It’s an exciting time for new models and concept designs at Subaru and we look forward to sharing greater detail on XV concept and Impreza next week.”
