Following that was the Viziv Performance STI, a faster version, and now this – the Viziv Tourer Concept.
What you’re looking at here is an estate version of the aforementioned Viziv Performance. This means an aggressive, bold-arched look is retained from that concept but this time with the addition of an extended tailgate to create what would be a more practical option for daily use.
There’s little in the way of further visual changes, but smaller exhaust tips do appear in what is presumably an effort to give it a more road-focused appearance.
Underneath the bonnet remains a boxer engine, performance details of which are unknown, paired to Subaru’s trademark all-wheel-drive system. Along with this, the Viziv Tourer Concept boasts safety technology by the ton. This includes an advanced version of its EyeSight system that can detect hazards on the road, manage cruise control and brake the vehicle in emergency situations, while radar technology and ‘highly accurate’ GPS also feature.
Although Subaru hasn’t yet confirmed if the Viziv Tourer Concept, or any other variants, will head into production, it has said it plans to launch the more-advanced tech showcased on the car in 2020.
The Japanese manufacturer has a long history of producing estate vehicles, with iconic models such as the Legacy, Impreza Estate and the current Levorg in its catalogue of cars – suggesting it wouldn’t be a stretch for a production version of the Viziv Tourer Concept to eventually come to market.
