Hmm, this might not be a look for everyone. Building on the earlier teaser image, Subaru's Liberty Concept in 'Ultimate Silver' semi-gloss finish has appeared with a deeper grille, more aggressive LED headlights and large air intakes on each side of the drooping snout. Heavily flared wheel arches break up the otherwise slab-sided lines and the look is completed with darkened tail-lights and integrated dual exhausts.
Door-mirror duties are taken care of by rear-view cameras.
Power comes from Subaru?s 3.6 litre six-cylinder boxer engine and is put to the ground though the manufacturer's trademark symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system via an automatic transmission. Inside the car though is where Subaru has really let loose.
The 'High Definition' two tone interior is trimmed in pearl white leather with a blue sheen for the seats, while door trims and dash are swathed in metallic black cow-hide with brushed aluminium highlights. The cabin abounds with touch-screen monitors in the front and rear of the console as well as the front seat headrests. Climate control, navigation and audio control are grouped together as part of the touch-screen interface.
While some of the interior features aren?t likely to make it to production, the solid exterior design points the way to the next generation Liberty sedan. The wing motif in the front grille captures Subaru?s current design theme and the framed doors indicate that the next Liberty will be chasing higher levels of interior refinement.
The extended wheelbase and larger dimensions also help to set the car apart from the Impreza, which has grown in size from its previous generation.
