NEWS: Subaru 'Levorg' Tourer Concept Debut @ Tokyo
Subaru has teased us with some images of a concept tourer – the strangely-named Levorg – which it will showcase at the forthcoming Tokyo Motor Show, November 20th.
The 'cross sport' design and 7-seater SUV, Crossover 7 concepts will also go on display at the Subaru stand at the 43rd Tokyo Motors Show, along with an exhibition of the new 1.6-litre Boxer engine with direct injection and turbo technology.
Subaru say: "The Levorg concept hints at a new vehicle currently under development for market launch in Japan in 2014. The name ‘Levorg’ comes from a combination of the words ‘Legacy’, ‘Revolution’ and ‘Touring’, and the concept will blend the practicality of a tourer and the stylish design and feel of a sports car. The Levorg will also feature an all-new 1.6-litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine with direct injection turbo (DIT) technology. The Subaru-developed engine is designed to offer smooth performance and greater environmental efficiency. The new engine will also be on show on the Subaru motor show stand as a technology exhibit."
The Subaru press conference at the Tokyo Motor Show is scheduled to start at 08.30 JST on Wednesday 20 November (23.30 GMT on Tuesday 19 November). Further information about Subaru’s stand is available at www.subaru.jp/tms2013/.
