SUBARU VIZIV 2 HYBRID REVEALED

Subaru’s Viziv SUV concept is back, this time debuting at this week’s Geneva Motor Show as the re-styled and enhanced Viziv 2.

It was the same show that hosted the original concept’s unveiling last year, but Subaru has given the concept a good going-over for the 2014 show.

In the looks department, the Viziv 2 is almost a whole new concept, picking up new front and rear styling, along with an updated profile.

The concept’s grille will also take on a bolder look, while the front bumper’s makeover will include deeper intakes and new ringed LED fog lights.

Likewise, the rear-end gets tail-lights inspired by Subaru’s latest models, along with a new tailgatedesign and new ringed fog lights in the bumper.

There’s a new and more production-focused cabin - compared, that is, to the original concept - and two large displays dominate the two-tier dash design.

The Viziv 2 remains a four-seater concept, but any production future - possibly as the next Forester - would see that changed to a five-seat configuration.

Power this time around is provided by Subaru’s 1.6 litre turbodiesel boxer engine, matched to a trio of electric motors and a Lineartronic CVT auto transmission.

The diesel engine and one of the electric motors take care of the front wheels, while the other two motors power the rear axle.

At low speeds, the electric motors are responsible for motivation, with the diesel kicking in at higher speeds.

The engine is also equipped with a start-stop system, and there’s a diesel-electric hybrid version of Subaru’s SI-Drive control system also featured.

Subaru has confirmed plans to develop the new system for future production models, promising the same "outstanding handling stability, secure feel and confident driving" it is known for.

Whether the Viziv itself previews a future production model is unclear however, although it could reveal a glimpse of a next-generation replacement for the current XV.

If the Viziv does reach showrooms, don't expect to see it before 2016.
