Following a teaser image released last month, Subaru has unveiled the Viziv Adrenaline concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The latest concept car is the latest to adopt the Viziv prefix – here bearing the name Viziv Adrenaline – and follows last year’s Viziv Tourer Concept as well as the Visiv Performance concept of 2017; the former channeling a sort of Levorg successor, and the latter hinting at the next WRX sedan.

The latest Viziv iteration adopts the now-commonplace SUV bodystyle, one which wears the ‘Bolder’ design philosophy as an evolution of the look that currently graces the automaker’s cars. Where the Viziv Tourer and Viziv Performance concepts indicated possible future directions for the Levorg and WRX respectively, the Viziv Adrenaline could be a sleeker-roofed interpretation of the XV crossover.

A dotted-circle design of foglamps are present at both ends of the concept, which complement headlamps and tail lights that are of a slimmer design than on current Subarus. Brighter-coloured skid plate-style trim is also present in the lower central sections of both front and rear bumpers for added visual ruggedness.

The black plastic protector shrouds around parts of the front bumper, rear bumper, lower sills and wheel-arches point towards its off-roading intent, as do its generous ride height and all-terrain tyres. Like prior concepts, the Viziv Adrenaline hasn’t come with much in terms of technical details, and appears to be more of a styling appetiser of Subaru things to come.

Subaru says that the Viziv Adrenaline combines “utility that supports active lifestyles with off-road driving capability that delivers enjoyment to go anywhere,” presumably with the inclusion of the Japanese automaker’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive as seen it its production models. Elsewhere, models such as the XV and Forester employ the X-Mode function for better tractability on loose surfaces.
