Last year's Geneva Motor Show saw Subaru introduce the XV concept, giving us a preview of what to expect with the next-generation model. Today, Subaru has revealed a teaser for next-generation XV (Crosstrek to us in the states).
Unlike some of Subaru's past attempts of taking a concept and making into a watered-down production model, the next XV looks to be very faithful to the concept's design.
Subaru is keeping many details quiet, but we can guess some of them.
- Using the new platform that underpins the Impreza
- Power coming for a 2.0L four-cylinder and the choice of either a five-speed manual or CVT
- Less spartan interior and all new infotainment system
We'll have more details on the XV when it debuts in March.
