    Geneva 2019: Subaru Teases New Crossover Concept

      VIZIV Adrenaline concept

    Subaru has released a teaser image of the VIZIV Adrenaline concept they plan to unveil in Geneva Switzerland at the Geneva Auto Show.  The image gives the impression of a small, sporty crossover with a fastback roofline, but the accompanying press release goes into little other detail.

    Subaru says that Viziv is a coined word from the phrase Vision for Innovation.  

    Subaru will also be displaying two European specification, electrified e-Boxer vehicles.

    The Geneva Auto Show starts March 5th, 2019

    Looks tiny and less useful than the terrible package called Crosstrek which I just shake my head at on how poorly packaged it is.

    Very true, but I have to question how small we go on ICE auto's before the interior room is just not worth the price they ask for the auto.

    I hope it is a 2 seater crossover coupe.   I predict by 2025 100% of vehicles sales will be crossover coupes.

    I really hope not as the Crossover Coupe is so over done and ugly. Tired of the loss of headroom, space, etc to a stupid design trend.

    While its hard to tell, I think this is one of the times @smk4565 was joking.

    Could be..;)    As an aside, though they already have the AWD GT, I'd really like to see a Challenger Trailhawk...with the same ground clearance as a Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, same tires, skid plates, Quadra Trac II, etc...that would be a rad 'crossover coupe'. 

    Likewise for GM fans, a Camaro ZR2 w/ the off road chops of the Colorado ZR2 would be cool..

    Yes it was a joke, I don't think 100% of cars will be crossover coupes.   Maybe just 99%  😉

    I'm really hoping Chevy builds a crossover coupe version of the C8...mid engined 2 seat crossover coupe, that would be a game changer...

    I wonder if it will diverge from a lifted Impreza hatchback with cladding next time around.

     

    It might lose the cladding.

    That would be nice, would be good if the upcoming Outback goes that route (or at least a large reduction).

      Today in Tokyo, Subaru put forth an ambitious plan. By the mid-2030s, the Japanese automaker will only sell electric vehicles worldwide. This announcement comes as no surprise as both China and Europe have announced stricter emissions regulations that will be coming in the near future.
      But to reach that goal, Subaru will be working with Toyota (which owns a 8.7 percent stake in Subaru) on developing both hybrid and electric vehicles. In a statement, Subaru executives said work has started on a “strong hybrid” vehicle using Toyota technology. No other details were provided. The two are also working on full-electric vehicles that will launch sometime this decade. These vehicles will play a key role in Subaru's goal of having 40 percent of vehicles sold be all-electric and electrified cars by 2030.
      Despite this change in direction for powertrains, Subaru executive's stress their vehicles will retain the key traits that have their vehicles unique.
      “Although we’re using Toyota technology, we want to make hybrids that are distinctly Subaru,” said Subaru's Chief Technology Officer Tetsuo Onuki.
      “It’s not only about reducing CO2 emissions. We need to further improve vehicle safety and the performance of our all-wheel drive.”

      Fiat is bringing the Concept Centoventi to the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.  The concept previews the next generation Panda and the name means 120 in Italian in honor of the brand's 120 year history.  The Panda is the mini-car platform used by the Fiat 500 in the U.S. 
      The Concept Centoventi is designed to be a "blank canvas" ready to be painted to suit owner's needs and desires at any time, without being stuck with the color chosen at purchase. It is produced in only one color and then the customer "paints" the vehicle using Fiat's 4U program that allows for four roof options, four bumper cover options, four wheel cover options, and four exterior wrappings.  Various interior options like storage compartments, seats, and child-restraint systems are interchangeable and installed in a plug-and-play fashion by the customer. 
      The powertrain is electrified and can be equipped with different batteries to vary the range from 60 miles to 300 miles. 
      The Concept Centoventi has a small screen in the windshield facing outward to display messages while a larger rear tailgate display can also display messages or while in motion, just the Fiat logo.

    • There hasn't been a 5.7 V8 in a Corvette since the C5, over 15 years ago.   With the C6, they first had a 6.0 V8, with a 6.2 and 7.0 in some variations..
    • I saw another one a few days ago.  I'm liking this car.  The mid-engine look is interesting and makes it look "balanced."  Some article was released and it was considered one of the best 10 cars of 2020.  They went as far as to say that, in base form, it's a bargain for what it is. I know the base engine is a 6.2 L V8.  I've seen that engine on specs every now and then.  I believe it's about 368 c.i.  I'm wondering why they couldn't have kept the venerable 5.7 L.  Maybe the 5.7 label is too long in the tooth and signals no innovation. - - - - - During the first week of August, I was at a gas station in FL and saw an immaculate mid-90s Cutlass Supreme (SL trim) coupe in white with burgundy buckets and alloy wheels.  As the guy was gassing up, I learned it was a '95 (which I had guessed), it had a 3.1 V6 (which I had guessed), and had about 160,000 miles.  He couldn't believe I knew so much about it. The guy was originally from England (looked like he could have been related to Australian Paul Hogan) and said he loved the car - its reliability, comfort, and mostly how economical it was in using fuel.  This car was 25 years old and it must have been tight!  Would have taken a photo but the situation just wasn't right for that. It's like being put into a time tunnel when you see something with burgundy cloth bucket seats. 
    • Took a drive yesterday afternoon...had to get out of the house.  Went on about a 20 mile loop down through the nearby national park, saw a really clean medium green w/ white roof  '60 Thunderbird, the dark blue '69/70 Grand Prix I've seen a few times, and a white '20 C8 Corvette.  Was beautiful but hot and humid out.
    • No need to worry in the PNW, we are all a little weird and different. This is a very common style up here. There is no right or wrong, wear what is comfortable and you like.
