Subaru is to show Subaru ‘Boxer Sports Car Architecture’ Concept, currently under joint development with the Toyota, at the upcoming Geneva Show.
Subaru says that the partnership has proved 'hugely successful in bringing the project to fruition in a timely and cost-effective manner'.
Based on an all-new platform and highlighting Subaru’s new design direction, the vehicle boasts the brand’s trademark Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine technology – a key component of any Subaru – and Subaru claims that it will 'reinterpret the enjoyable, sure-footed driving experience in a rear-wheel drive format'.
There will also be a European debut for the new Subaru Impreza Concept.
The new Subaru Trezia will also be on display. The left-hand-drive-only B-segment vehicle is designed to meet the increasing demand for small, environmentally friendly cars in Europe.
The ‘Compact Smart Wagon’ comes in at under four metres and offers remarkable levels of interior space. A 1.3-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel (with CO2 emissions of 113 g/km) will be on offer, and although only available in left-hand format, plans to study the development of a right-hand drive version for possible introduction to the UK are currently under review.
