Subaru shows off another iteration of the Viziv concept, with the third consecutive redesign after the original study made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor show.
The Viziv 2 keeps a similar profile to the two previous generation concepts and adopts a four-door solution with two large scissor doors up front and a pair of sliding rear doors. The design has a more chiseled appearance with stronger lines and less curves on the outside.
The interior of the 4.4-meter (173.2-inches) long concept is brand new in styling, but continues to offer a four-seat layout.
The concept is motivated by Subaru's newly developed hybrid system linking a 1.6 liter turbo-diesel 'DIT' Direct-Injection Turbo boxer engine to three electric motors and a Lineartronic (CVT) automatic transmission.
No production plans yet, but this could really be a game changer for the automaker.
