Subaru introduces the Advanced Tourer Concept at the 2011 Tokyo motor Show. The model is basically an evolution of the previous Hybrid Tourer Concept, presented in 2009, which laid the foundations for the design style currently adopted by the Japanese carmaker.
Subaru Advanced Tourer Concept was developed as a new-generation sports wagon providing both superior driving performance and utility. It features an innovative exterior design not found in conventional wagon model which uses a quite impactful and massive front grille and a dynamic but sleek look that is quite reminiscent of some modern-day coupe model. Headlights uses LED technology exclusively and features many details made of carbon fibre, such as the rear diffuser.
The Advanced Tourer Concept is equipped with an horizontally-opposed 1.6-litre 4 cylinder boxer engine with direct fuel injection and a not better specified electric unit, whose power will be transferred to all four wheels through Subaru’s Lineatronic continuously variable transmission. As for the interior, a large monitor is built into the steering wheel allowing access to maps, television and internet services. Textures such as wood and metal are incorporated into the inside layout to produce ample ambiance, while a roof entirely made of glass adds to the spacious feel.
