Subaru XV Concept revealed
Subaru has revealed its Subaru XV Concept at the Geneva Motor Show giving us a glimpse of the next-generation XV.
SUBARU HAS revealed its Subaru XV Concept at the Geneva Motor Show. And while the brand suggests it a design study, it does look very close to production spec, featuring Subaru’s “next-generation ‘DYNAMIC X SOLID’ design philosophy, with a solid, robust appearance and raised ground clearance that references the go-anywhere All-Wheel Drive capability of every Subaru vehicle”.
It doesn’t look a whole lot different to the current generation XV, and that’s a good thing, because I think the current XV is one of the better looking compact SUVs on the market.
Subaru said, “At the front the concept features the company’s signature hexagonal grille and ‘hawk-eye’ headlamps. Matt black body cladding – which can shrug off light impacts and scrapes in rural or urban environments – runs from the front bumper, over the wheel arches and side sills, and into the rear bumper.
“The rear of the car echoes the same wide, low and highly stable stance portrayed by the front, with powerful shoulders over the matt black-clad rear bumpers which rise to meet the car’s rear combination lamps. The rear lights share the same design motif as the ‘hawk-eye’ headlamps.”
The Concept copped a new “exclusive” paint finish, Glacier Khaki Silica and there are orange accents throughout and 19-inch alloys.
