New Subaru VIZIV 2 concept teaser previews a new crossover model, set to debut at Geneva

Subaru has teased its latest concept model, the VIZIV 2. The forthcoming concept will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month and pick up where the original VIZIV and VIZIV EVOLUTION concepts left off.

The concept serves as a preview to the Japanese manufacturer’s next-generation crossover. The overall design is far more radical than that of its successors, with striking C-shaped LED headlights and circular LED framed fog lights lower down in the front bumper. While our view of the concept is limited, a prominent grille is also set to feature.

There are no details of what’s fitted under the bonnet, but last year’s VIZIV concept was powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-litre boxer engine mated with two electric motors driving the rear wheels and another driving the front.

Alongside the VIZIV 2 concept, Subaru will also be showcasing the new WRX STI, plus its racing car counterpart, developed for this year’s 24-hour Nurburgring endurance race. More information on the new concept will be revealed on March 4 at Geneva.
