The VIZIV Concept Gives Us a Look at Subaru's Angular Performance Future

Subaru unveiled a new concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show with the goal of displaying the brand's performance and design future. The VIZIV concept employs a boxer engine, a four-door sedan layout, and of course, a signature Subaru hood scoop. It also has a very angular design that's more dramatic than any Subaru on the road today.

Like any Subaru performance four-door, the VIZIV concept uses the company's symmetrical all-wheel drive system to put the power to the road. Where this car differs is in its bulky, squared off looks. With boxed-out fender flares and crease-filled bumpers, it seems like the opposite of Mazda's streamlined Vision Coupe concept.

The current Subaru WRX and WRX STi have been on the market for several years now, so we expect a redesign soon. And we're guessing this concept gives us a preview of the next generation roadgoing Subaru performance sedans. We won't know for sure until Subaru comes out with a new WRX, though we suspect we won't have to wait too long.
