Auto Express Car Reviews

Subaru’s new Coupe is go! The Japanese firm has confirmed that a concept version of its long-awaited Coupe, jointly developed with Toyota, will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. No pictures have yet been released, but our exclusive renderings give you an idea of how the newcomer will look.

What’s more, the firm has confirmed that the car will be built on an all-new platform, and while the Coupe will feature Subaru’s trademark horizontally-opposed boxer engine, it won’t get the firm’s symmetrical all wheel drive. Instead, like to Toyota model, it will be rear-drive, giving the firm a rival to Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe in the US market.

Subaru has also confirmed that it will show its new Impreza Concept, which was first seen at the LA Show last year, and the firm’s new Trezia model which is a B-segment MPV that’s essentially a rebadged version of Toyota’s forthcoming Verso-S.

Geneve Auto Show

I don't know if anyone has seen this yet. Looks like we'll finally get to see the Subie version though.

if this turns out to be true, i'm going to run around with the largest "I TOLD YOU SO" sign you've ever seen on the internet. RWD > AWD for this car.

If this is going to a Subaru, it will be AWD right?

True. It will look smoother and sleeker that rendering. Rendering is like a put-together FT86 and Impreza Concept.
