The concept will likely preview a future estate from the the Japanese brand.
Subaru is set to bring an estate concept in the same vein as its recently unveiled Viziv concept to the Geneva motor show in March 2018.
Not much is known about the Viziv Tourer concept, other than the fact that the name Viziv comes from the phrase 'Vision for Innovation'. It is possible that the car could preview an eventual replacement for current version of the Levorg model – the estate has been on sale since 2014, and adding another two to three years to turn the Viziv Tourer concept into a production model would make that prediction a plausible theory.
Subaru was once considered the working man's performance car brand but in recent years things have gone a little quiet, and the company has become more well known for its reliable countryside workhorses. The original Viziv, first shown at the Tokyo motor show last year, was supposed to recapture some of that excitement from days gone by.
The Tokyo Visiv was packaged in a sleek saloon body and featured Subaru's trademark all-wheel-drive underpinnings. The Viziv may well be a future WRX STI that will carve up rally stages the world over, but it also featured a host of automated driving technologies, advanced driver assist functions, and showcased Subaru's next-generation EyeSight safety system along with other devices in anticipation of the technologies' roll-out by 2020.
Both the saloon Viziv and the upcoming Tourer version of the concept car are all set to give us a preview what Subarus of tomorrow will look like, and hopefully will give us a good idea what direction the brand will take in the coming years.
