Unveiled at this year’s 2015 Montreal International Auto Show, the Subaru Viziv 2 Concept follows on the footsteps of the first Viziv Concept unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show. That said, this one takes things further by showcasing a hybrid powertrain and a beautiful style that may just preview where the Japanese automaker is going the next few years in terms of technology and design.

The name Viziv comes from the words vision and innovation, and that is exactly what this concept is all about. It also fits into Subaru’s stated goal of providing “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind” to consumers as part of its core product-development strategy and also its vision for the future.

The Subaru Viziv 2 Concept is a future-generation crossover concept that aims to combine features that, well, are hard to combine. For exemple, the Viziv 2 Concept seeks to strike a balance between environmental friendliness and driving performance, and as such is offered with a powerful yet green engine that we will touch upon in a second. Also, it wishes to dazzle with its design and yet offers plenty of utility at every level, whether it be in the cockpit for passengers or in the back for cargo.

Although the Subaru Viziv 2 Concept’s design is striking, it can accommodate four passengers in complete comfort according to Subaru. Moreover, a sporty cabin is expected. Back to the exterior, the Viziv 2 Concept showcases several styling features found on other Subaru vehicles with the added benefit of being thoroughly unique and perfectly-proportioned.

Under the hood, the Subaru Viziv 2 Concept is powered by a 1.6-liter Horizontally-Opposed direct injection turbo engine that is combined with a Lineartronic CVT transmission with a motor in the front and two others in the back. The system is a hybrid powertrain and includes features like a high-voltage battery. As with any Subaru, the Viziv 2 concept gets Symmetrical AWD that has been improved by offering total control of the rear wheels through the rear engine for maximum stability.

Finally, the Viziv 2 Concept features the next generation Eyesight active safety system that includes a complete package of cameras and lasers to prevent accidents and warn the driver if they are about to happen. The new system provides 360-degree sensing that can be applied in autonomous driving.

Although the Subaru Viziv 2 Concept is not about to show up at your Subaru dealership, it is representative of where Subaru is going both in terms of engines and design. If they stay the course, the brand will do just fine.
