    Geneva 2013: Subaru Viziv Concept

    Subaru Viziv Concept Previews Future Styling, Diesel-Hybrid Tech

    At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show today, Subaru held the worldwide debut of its Viziv Concept, a future-generation crossover concept with a Subaru Boxer Diesel Hybrid under the hood.

    The Subaru Boxer Diesel Hybrid is a proposal to the future of Subaru powerplants, which combines a 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer diesel engine with a plug-in hybrid system. A high-torque-compatible Lineartronic (CVT) features a front motor that provides both vehicle drive and power generation while two independent rear motors are used for vehicle drive only. The powertrain selects the best time to use each power unit helping achieve high fuel economy.

    I always wondered what a mismatch of Opel/Hyundai/Ford front designs would look like on a Subaru.

    Too much Ford in there for this Suby fan's liking. Though I have to admit it looks way better than the design language they're using for the current Outback/Legacy. And once again Subaru is heavy on substance at the expense of style, which is fine with me. I'd love a symmetrical AWD plug-in hybrid diesel boxer.

    I'm wondering how this design language will translate to my next WRX.

    Not the best look if I'm honest.

    Subaru's are always the ugly duckling. The Impreza is a good car but the front end is homely and the side mirror jutting from the door itself is just.....wrong

    ...So where's germeezy and his outcry over another automaker using Hyundai's oversized, hexagonal grill shape?

    Doors too tall, windows too short. A submarine with tires.
