Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept = Subaru BRZ Shooting Brake

Just shown at the Tokyo Auto Show.

Quote:
Subaru soft debuted a world premier car here in Tokyo, and the rollout was so quiet we had to corner execs to find the scoop. Turns out, it's what's probably the coolest, damn-near-ready for production car of the entire event. It's a thinly disguised BRZ wagon, called the Cross Sport Concept, and ignore the silly name for a second. Underneath the slick wagon bodywork, this concept is all-BRZ everything. That means, most likely, rear-wheel drive and the familiar 2-liter flat-four engine.

Yoshio Hirakawa, corporate Senior Vice President, explained that the concept is a mere two inches longer than the stock BRZ, with for more usable rear legroom. But the real story is the excellent hatchback layout, an obvious Subaru strength. In concept form, a double liftgate/tailgate provides excellent utility (think of track days, when you could either chill on the tailgate or use it as a tool bench), and a completely fold-flat rear seat and front passenger seat that collapses totally flat as well, would ease the big-box store run.

The concept looks fully baked, even if we likely won't get the gorgeous suede interior and wood clad hatch area/liftgate. Other show-only goodies, we'd guess, are STi brakes and chromed stereoscope forward collision safety cameras (they look like missile launchers here, but in production they're sure to get toned down).

Production? There wasn't a single peep from Hirakawa-san about future plans, but it's an absolutely obvious line extension for Subaru, since a BRZ coupe/hatch would fulfill not only a practical niche, but an enthusiast dream as well.

no stanks! Keep SUV's as 4 door and AWD. If you want a sporty rwd car, then buy a FR-s/BRZ.

Tokyo motor show 2013: Subaru Cross Sport Design concept

Cross Sport Design concept shown for the first time in Tokyo, revealing Subaru's perception of the future 'urban SUV' market

The Cross Sport features a flat-four engine, which drives the rear wheels through a constant-velocity transmission

Quote:
The Subaru Cross Sport Design concept has been seen for the first time at the Tokyo motor show.

Subaru defines the concept as a combination of 'sport' and 'utility'. It's claimed to feature "easy seat access, a comfortable interior, and abundant luggage space".

The concept is 4300mm long and weighs just 1250kg, and is stated to display what Subaru thinks to be future direction for urban SUVs.

Details are few, but it's reputed to feature a horizontally opposed engine that transmits power through a CVT to the rear wheels.

The concept has been shown alongside the Levorg, Crossover 7 and Viziv Evolution models.

Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept Looks Like a BRZ Outback Edition


Quote:
What's the first thing that comes to your mind after looking at these first images of Subaru's Cross Sport Concept that is making its debut today at the Tokyo Motor Show?

If you want to know our thoughts, we found the concept looking like a BRZ with a shooting brake-style upper part and a tall-riding crossover lower part. That's just our imagination, though, as Subaru hasn't released full details on the study yet.

What the Japanese carmaker did tell us is that the study combines "SPORT" and "UTILITY" features offering plenty of luggage space and road clearance, with the concept measuring a compact 4.3 meters or about 169 inches in length.

For more information, we'll have to wait for the full release.

Yeah, take away the off-road jacked up height and the oddly colored body cladding, and you have yourself a nice looking shooting brake.

Subaru's HTCVT has been compared to Porsche's PDK in terms of shift speed. If this ever comes into production, as long as they give us an option for a manual, we all win.

Why is Subaru so insistent on turning all of it's nice cars into dorky wagons? They already wrecked the Impreza. And please, no one point out that the WRX STi is still a thing. It's obvious to me.
