Geneva 2019: Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept: Comments

Recommended Posts

What you're looking at here is a preview of the next generation Subaru Crosstrek. Unveiled at the Geneva International Auto Show today, the Subaru Viziv Adrenaline concept is a more distinct take on what the Crosstrek could look like.  Subaru has increased the amount of body cladding, made the lines sharper, added LED accent lighting, and 6-dot fog lights front and rear.  The wheels have white highlights on the rim.

The company says the concept shows Subaru's new "BOLDER" design theme. 

The Crosstrek was recently refreshed for the 2018 model year and a Plug-in Hybrid Crosstrek was introduced at the 2018 LA Auto Show, so it may be a few years before we see the styling updated to this new look.

Not a fan of the body cladding myself, but would love to see them add decent reverse tail lights that would light up the back when going in reverse.

Pontiac thinks that is too much body cladding.  I imagine the regular Crosstrek will be pretty tamed down, Subaru doesn't really make bold vehicles, they play it pretty safe.

Wonder what mercedes thinks of the cladding? After all- they 'invented' it.
This subaru is ugly, but then again; it's a subaru.

Vicious era of styling we're in- the basic shapes are all dialed in courtesy of the EPA/CAFE industrial complex, so all that's left is variations on angry headlights and zip-zagging character lines.

The new Trax will look a $h!load better than this conglomeration.  Plus, if you are a Subaru fan, you know the production vehicle NEV.ER. looks like the concept.

Nice looking Hyundai Kona. 

 

Sorry but Subaru’s designs have never done one thing for my eyes.

      Subaru has announced pricing for the 2020 Subaru Legacy and 2020 Subaru Outback. Both get modest price increases, but also increases in base equipment.  The Legacy starting price is $200 more than last year at $24,995, and the Outback is $300 more at $26,645. 
      Some of the biggest equipment upgrades is that Subaru's Eyesight now features Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, a heads up monitoring system, LED headlights for low and high beam, and high beam assist. 
      Both cars are built on Subaru's new global platform that offers increased safety, and reductions in noise, vibration, and harshness. The base engine is a revised 2.5 liter boxer-four that produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded 2.4T boxer engine is standard in Limited XT models and produces 260 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm.  Both engines come with start-stop to improve fuel efficiency.  
      Fuel economy figures are as follows:
      Legacy 2.5 - 35 MPG highway
      Legacy XT - 32 MPG highway
      Outback 2.5 - 33 MPG highway
      Outback XT - 30 MPG highway
      The only transmission available is Subaru's Lineartronic CVT that now has an 8-speed manual shift mode via paddles on the steering wheel. 
      Six different trims are available on the Legacy and seven different trims available on the Outback. Inside, the infotainment system features dual 7.0 inch touch screens.  The upper screen controls the audio with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, while the lower screen controls climate control, controls for Eyesight, and other vehicle systems. 
      Both the Legacy and Outback are built in Lafayette, IN, and will go on sale this fall.

      BMW unveiled their BMW Vision M Next Concept in Munich today. This concept displays the prototype of BMW's future driving assistance technologies named "EASE" and "BOOST".  EASE allows the car to take over the task of driving and allowing the driver to relaxing in a comfortable living space.  Relaxing, talking, in-car entertainment, or other things focused away from driving are possible here. BOOST offers the driver the ultimate driving experience. 
      The interior is driver oriented even if the driver is not driving. The design keeps the driver focused on the right content at the right time. 
      Much of the Vision M Next Concept is a homage to the current BMW i8 PHEV. The exterior is pure sports car. Power comes from a PHEV drive with a total output of 600 horsepower and a top speed of 186 MPH.  Zero to 62 MPH is said to take just 3.0 seconds. There is also a BOOST+ mode that grants extra power at the push of a button.   All electric mode is good for up to 62 miles of range allowing for most commutes to be made purely on electricity alone...assuming you don't use the BOOST+ button too often. 
      The concept isn't expected to go into production, but could indicate the path that BMW takes for both the i8 and fully autonomous driving.  Parts of the structure use recycled carbon fiber reinforced plastic, similar to bits of the 7-series and the platform can be used for EV, PHEV, and internal combustion engines.  BMW plans on releasing 25 electrified models over the next few years with all of them on the scene by 2023.
