The spectacular Subaru Viziv Performance concept unveiled in Tokyo

Published on October 31 2017

Japanese manufacturers like to take advantage of the Tokyo Motor Show, held every two years, to impress the gallery with incredible concepts and advanced powertrains and driving systems. This year was not an exception as many impressive prototypes featuring advanced powertrains or spectacular designs were unveiled.

Subaru Viziv Performance: many believe it to be the next Subaru WRX

At the top of the list, we have the Subaru Viziv Performance prototype, a sporty four-door sedan that could perhaps serve as the genesis for the next generation of the Subaru WRX.

At least, that’s what many fans of Subaru’s rally-inspired sedan want, because this car presented in Tokyo is simply sublime. Muscular with aggressive, knife-cut lines, the Subaru Viziv Performance has one heck of a look to it. Although it immediately showcases its sporty side, the Viziv Performance still displays a style that is not without refinement and elegance.

The 2018 Subaru WRX has been retouched this year with many improvements and an even more affordable price, but this is not a new generation, but rather a refreshed model. It will take a few more years to see a completely redesigned Subaru WRX.

Going back to the Viziv Performance concept, we still do not know what's under the hood, but Subaru says it will be a BOXER engine and that Subaru symmetrical AWD will be standard.

In terms of size, the Viziv Performance is a little longer, taller and wider than the current Subaru WRX while its wheels are coated with 20-inch Bridgestone Potenza tires.

Finally, Subaru engineers wanted to reduce the weight of the concept by using carbon fiber in the wing, bumpers and other body components. In combination with the use of the more rigid Subaru Global Platform with this lower center of gravity, the Viziv Performance concept promises to be fun to drive if ever it sees production. We are crossing our fingers.
