New Subaru Levorg Concept Previews Next Year's Production Car [w/Video]

What do you get when you combine the words ‘Legacy’, ‘Revolution’ and ‘Touring’? Why, ‘Levorg’, of course, of course. Name playing aside, Subaru’s Levorg Concept, which just made its world premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show today, is an interesting station wagon proposal that will go on sale in Japan in spring next year.

We will note that there’s nothing really conceptual about the display model as the car looks production ready. At 4,690mm long, 1,780mm wide and 1,485mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,650mm (+30mm over the Impreza), the Levorg sits between the Impreza and the Legacy in Subaru’s range.

Subaru says that it has designed the Levorg to be both practical and comfortable.

The estate model will be offered with two gasoline engine choices, both turbocharged flat fours, the first with a displacement of 1.6-liters, claimed to deliver claimed to output 168bhp (170PS) and 250Nm (175 lb ft), and the second one, with 2.0-liters that is rated for 296hp (300PS) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft).

The newly developed 1.6L Turbo is paired to a CVT Lineatronic and returns a fuel economy of 17.4km/l (equal to 40mpg US and 5.9 l/100km) on the Japanese driving cycle, with the 2.0L Turbo linked to a CVT Sports Lineatronic and returning 13.2 km/l (31mpg or 7.6 l/100m). Both models come with Subaru’s AWD system as standard.

Among other features and gadgets that will be offered on the production car is Subaru’s next-generation EyeSight lane keeping assistance system that can also control the steering.

Joining the Levorg at Subaru’s Tokyo Motor Show booth will be various editions of its existing cars, along with the Viziv and Cross Sport Concept vehicles.
