Subaru, the automobile manufacturing division of the Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries, has slowly but precisely made a name on the world’s cars market. It is internationally famous for using the so called ‘boxer’ engine in most of its vehicles above 1500 cc. Rather conservatory, the company seems to have the desire to surprise the planet. And a great place to start is the Tokyo Motor Show, where the company has just presented a near-production version of the LEVORG prototype.
The Subaru LEVORG is nothing else but a wagon with a pleasant design, called by enthusiasts a “sports tourer”. As a premiere, the vehicle is covered in a Metallic Blue Grey Steel or a Pearl Crystal White paint. None of these were present on a Subaru vehicle in the past. The prototype has a 4690 mm length, 1780 mm wideness and a 1485 mm height. The wheelbase is 2650 mm and the weight is 1,504 kg (3,315 lbs). The vehicle features Black finish with metallic accents, dual 3.5 inch full-colour LEDs, lane keeping assist, active lane keep system, pre-collision braking control etc.
The Subaru LEVORG prototype is powered by a new 1.6-liter DIT direct-injection turbo engine producing 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. There is also a larger 2.0-liter DIT engine available developing 300 HP (221 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). These two engines send output to a symmetrical AWD system through a Lineartronic (for 1.6) or Sport Lineartronic (for 2.0) transmission. The model rides either on 17 or 18 inch alloy wheels. Subaru takes orders starting January 4th, 2014.
