The Subaru Viziv 2 Concept Is A Sharp-Suited Turbo Crossover

Last year at the Geneva Motor Show, Subaru brought out its Viziv Concept, which hinted at styling cues that we've now seen on the 2015 Subaru Legacy. Now think of this year's Viziv 2 Concept as more insight into the future.

Subaru says the Viziv 2 is a "future-generation crossover concept that represents the direction of Subaru's brand value" and we take that to mean there will be a lot of these styling pieces on future mainstream models. That said, it's also said to be "emphasizing 'dynamism' and 'solidity.'" Audi might like to have a word with you, Subaru.

However much dynamism, the Viziv 2 is actually a plug-in hybrid with a 1.6-liter turbocharged flat-four, a CVT and all-wheel drive. It sounds like real powertrain, one that's way better than the XV Crosstrek Hybrid got.

If this is the direction Subaru wants to go in, then it's a good one.
