Subaru XV Concept Crossover Debuts In Shanghai

Subaru yesterday unveiled the XV Concept at the Auto Shanghai 2011. Subaru says that the XV Concept was engineered to blend the crossover-like commanding silhouette with a fashionable image in a single, modern package.

On the front we can see standard design elements that are common to the Subaru stable, including the hexagon grille, winged motif and sharply- and solidly-designed hawk-eye headlights. The rear of the vehicle features the same hexagonal design as the front and more hexagons engraved into the clear blue base under the license plate complement the consistent design theme.

One of the nice features is Subaru’s own advanced driving assist “EyeSight” system an LCD monitor positioned between the two well-balanced and highly visible combination meters allows the driver to check the images captured with the EyeSight’s stereo cameras.

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-liter four cylinder Horizontally-Opposed DOHC engine.
