Tokyo Auto Show Preview: Subaru EXIGA Concept Car

Hot on the wheels of the WRX STi reveal last night, the folks at Subaru revealed their diabolical plans to rule the wagon segment at the Tokyo Auto Show later this month. The first non-production vehicle they'll be showing to complete this evil plan is a Touring concept called the EXIGA — a seven-seater combining a spacious interior with "exhilarating driving performance." Well, you know it's got to have "exhilarating driving performance" — because it certainly isn't going to survive on looks alone. Although that's never stopped Subaru before. Full press release after the jump.
