Subaru has auto enthusiasts excited for the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show; not only will they draw back the curtain on the new BRZ coupe, but the annual Japanese auto show will also serve as a debut for Subaru’s Advanced Tourer Concept car.
If the press release and photos are anything to go off of, the new Advanced Tourer Concept will certainly exhibit some aggressive and luxurious design features that the current Subaru Legacy – of which the Advanced Tourer Concept is rumored to be a part of – does not.
With a focus on luxury and technological flair, the Subaru ATC features a host of impressive advancements around the car, like brushed aluminum trim, a panoramic sunroof, and an information/entertainment screen mounted onto the steering wheel.
In addition, the ATC has a new crash-avoidance system with two rear-view mirror mounted cameras, as well as a hybrid drivetrain that fuses an electric motor to a 1.6-liter turbo boxer four, essentially allowing the ATC to deliver the same output as a 2.0 or 2.5-liter but with increased fuel economy, powering all wheels through the world’s first longitudinally-mounted chain drive CVT.
No word yet on whether the Advanced Tourer Concept will make it to production, but here is hoping for some positive reaction to Subaru’s more aggressive design later this month when it makes its debut.
