Subaru will be unveiling its Advanced Tourer Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. The 4.58 metre-long vehicle will join the BRZ as one of two major Subaru debuts at the show.

The Advanced Tourer Concept features an innovative exterior design and is powered by a turbocharged and direct fuel injection 1.6 litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine partnered with an efficient hybrid system, with a high torque-compatible Lineartronic CVT transmission in tow.

The vehicle will also feature the company’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive; the company says the hybrid system has been developed to harmonise with Symmetrical AWD technology – a single motor system is used for its simple, lightweight structure. The system has an Electric Vehicle (EV) mode, which allows AWD motion using only the motor at start-up and on low-speed drives.

Features on this one include a glass panel roof, as well as a large monitor built into the steering wheel to allow easy access to maps, television and internet services. It will also be equipped with the company’s advanced EyeSight driver assist system, in which the recognition range of the stereo camera has expanded considerably, both in width and depth.
