subaru to unveil levorg concept at tokyo motor show

A new gold dawn for touring cars is upon us if Subaru is to be believed. Come November, the automaker will unveil the future of the Legacy and Outback at the Tokyo Motor Show: The Levorg.

The sport tourer concept — whose name is derived from legacy, revolution and touring — comes equipped with Subaru’s next-gen EyeSight pre-crash braking system, wraparound LED headlamps, a turbocharged 1.6-liter direct-injection boxer, and other wonderful, ephemeral goodies concept cars usually receive.

The tourer (don’t call it a wagon around the hipsters lest their stretched earlobes snap) has a bit of muscle in its appearance, as well, with sculpted fender flares, a slanted backside, and a round nose with an air scoop ready to direct cold air through the engine for more power.

Subaru will also unveil the Cross Sport Design Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, a concept with a small body for better seat access and maneuvering through the tight streets of Tokyo and, perhaps in the future, a street near you.

    I'm so excited about the LED headlights! It's about time Subaru listen to their customers and bring them what they want. In all seriousness, as the owner of a final year Legacy GT wagon, I swore I would never let mine go. And that's because nobody makes a reasonably priced equivalent of what I've got. It was my dream car and I am terrified that some day someone will hit it and it'll be taken away. I'm constantly looking for what I would get to replace it if the unthinkable were to happen. Right now it's a Saab - but if Subie makes a suitable replacement it would have to be added to the lineup... assuming they don't muck it all up like the current generation Legacy.

    Over on nasioc, there is a big thread with the teasers altered in Photoshop and with comparisons to the WRX that is currently running around in camo. There are a LOT of similarities. Knowing that no WRX/STI hatch is planned for the 4th gen Impreza, there is speculation that this will fill the gap for displaced Legacy wagon owners and WRX/STI wagon/hatch owners. Real wagon proportions, about the size of the 4th gen Legacy? Yes please!

  • Zerofoo I'm pretty sure driving this thing in any respectable town is considered probable cause.
  • Doc423 Well said, Jeff.
  • Urlik My online research seems to indicate it’s an issue with the retaining clips failing and allowing the valve spring retainers to come out. This results in the valve dropping into the cylinder.
  • EBFlex Typical Ford. For those keeping track, Ford is up to 44 recalls for the year. Number one recalled manufacturer (yet again) by a wide margin.
  • Lorie Did they completely forget the damn 2.0 ecoboosts that have the class action lawsuit? Guess those of us that had to pay out of pocket for an engine replacement for a fail at 76k miles are out of luck? I will never buy a Ford again.
