    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).

      The first Kia Stinger in the UK, a homologation test car, was saved from the crusher.  As a pre-production car, it couldn't be sold to the public.  As it sat in Kia's headquarters showroom, the Product and Press relations team were scheming up ways to keep the HiChroma Red GT S.  After all, during its testing, it has racked up 10,000 miles, an unusually high amount for a test mule. 
      Instead of being sent to the crusher, Kia brought in an engineering team from Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany. The team upgraded the Twin Turbo V6 from 365 hp to 422 hp and peak torque from 376 lb-ft to 413 lb-ft.  They replaced the exhaust with a lightweight Milltek Sport exhaust with cats removed. An upgraded transmission cooler was added. and the transmission was recalibrated for quicker shifting in Sport and Sport+ mode. The team then "Added lightness" to the car by removal of all unneeded weight. Interior trim, airbags, engine cover, rear bumper beam were all removed. The rear windows were glued in place and lightweight door cards added.  After the needed safety equipment and underbody stiffening were installed, the net weight reduction came to about 331 lbs off the stock car. 
      Once the mechanical modifications were complete, the  team added a Stillen front splitter and a rear spoiler, and a body wrap that advertises the racing specs and the GT420 name. 
      There are no plans to build such a car from Kia, but it is an interesting study of what can be done with a car that is otherwise headed to the crusher.
