Geneva 2019: Subaru Teases New Crossover Concept: Comments

Recommended Posts

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).

      Herick Fisker is back again after his original company succumbed to bankruptcy in 2014.  Now as Fisker, Inc., the latest vehicle he is showing is an electric crossover concept.  While we have a picture, the technical details are light.
      The EV will be priced near $40,000 and have a 300 mile range.  Powered by an 80 kWh enhanced lithium-ion battery, there will be rear-motor rear wheel drive and optional dual motor all wheel drive available. 
      Fisker is planning on the not-yet-named SUV in late 2021, just about a year after the Tesla Model Y is due to hit the market.  Fisker is planning on a Telsa-Like online only sales model with "nationwide concierge service".

      Karma released a teaser image of an unnamed concept car that will be fully unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 16th.  The car is the result of a partnership with Pininfarina.  The front view of the car shows thin, horizontal daytime running lamps in presumably LED, a lighted logo, and a deep lower air spliter with 16 vertical teeth. 
      Also being shown at Shanghai will be a refreshed version of the Karma Revero.

      Hyundai has released pictures of the next generation 2020 Hyundai Sonata about a month ahead of the cars formal debut at the New York International Auto Show.  This eighth generation Sonata is an all-new design that is much bolder than the rather conservative model currently on sale.   The new design theme is called Sensuous Sportiness.
      The new car is larger than the outgoing model by 1 inch in width, 1.4 inches in wheelbase, and 1.8 inches in length. Hyundai has made efforts to improve the premium feel of the cabin.  The dash has a minimalist feel to it while the dash cluster and infotainment system are fully digital. 
      One notable feature is the daytime running lamps.  When illuminated, the lights run on a strip up the outer seams of the hood, but when switched off they appear as pieces of chrome trims. Hyundai calls them Hidden Lighting Lamps.  The Sonata will also feature a digital key that will allow drivers to use their smartphone to unlock and start the car.
      No word yet on powertrains.
      The 2020 Sonata will debut at the New York Auto Show in April and will go on sale later this year.
