Το μοντέλο περιγράφεται από την εταιρία ως “sports tourer” και το πρώτο concept που θα δούμε τον επόμενο μήνα θα μας δώσει απλά μία ιδέα για το μοντέλο παραγωγής που θα βγει στην αγορά το 2014 στην Ιαπωνία. Το όνομα LEVORG είναι το αποτέλεσμα του συνδυασμού του “Legacy” με το “revolution” και το “touring” και παρότι δεν είναι ιδιαίτερα εύηχο, είναι αν μη τι άλλου χαρακτηριστικό. Το cοncept θα είναι εφοδιασμένο με έναν υπερτροφοδοτούμενο boxer κινητήρα 1,6 λίτρων ενώ εκτός αυτού, θα διαθέτει και την νέα γενιά του Eyesight συστήματος της Subaru με νέες λειτουργίες ασφαλείας και υποστήριξη ελέγχου του τιμονιού.
Στο Tokyo Motor Show, θα παρουσιαστεί και το Cross Sport concept, μία σχεδιαστική σπουδή της Subaru που αναπαριστά το όραμα της φίρμας για τα SUV επόμενης γενιάς. Το concept θα μετράει 4.300mm σε μήκος και υπόσχεται μία άνετη καμπίνα με εύκολη πρόσβαση και άπλετους αποθηκευτικούς χώρους.
Τέλος, η Subaru θα παρουσιάσει και το Crossover 7, ένα επταθέσιο μοντέλο με «σοφιστικέ αστικό look» και ευρύχωρη καμπίνα επιβατών.
Το τρίο των μοντέλων θα παρουσιαστούν επίσημα στις 20 Νοεμβρίου, μαζί με το VIZIV concept που είδαμε και στην έκθεση της Γενεύης.
