Subaru has unveiled the prototype of its planned Levorg sports wagon at Tokyo motor show, with a sleek body, two engine choices and the next generation of Subaru's 'Eyesight' safety technology.
The Levorg will offer the choice of a 125kW/250Nm 1.6-litre or 221kW/400Nm 2.0-litre boxer four-cylinder engines, mated to continuously variable transmissions.
The sports focus is played up in the chunky D-shaped steering wheel, blue backlit instruments and metallic and piano black finishes. The Levorg is set to go on sale late next year in Japan -- although with no plans to export to other markets -- but we will get future Subarus with the Levorg's technology.
That includes the next-generation EyeSight driver assist system -- incorporating lane-keeping, brake light recognition, pre-collision reverse throttle and braking system that operates up to 50km/h, and adaptive cruise control -- plus an emergency stop signal.
