PostHeaderIcon Subaru Dresses up its Three Favorite Models for an Outing in Tokyo

Subaru’s ho-hum presence at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show – only the new Impreza made the trip to Germany – may have been a disappointment for fans of the brand, but not all is lost because the Japanese automaker will be out in full force at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in October. We already know that it plans to unveil a special edition version of the BRZ at the event. Now, it’s adding to its list of debuts by rolling out three “concept” versions of its three best-selling models: the Impreza, XV, and Outback.

Truth be told; none of the concepts are actual concepts, at least in the traditional way we know of concepts. Instead, they’re more like “special variants,” each coming with unique exterior and interior features that none of their standard counterparts feature. Subaru even says as much, describing them as previews of what it calls the “new Subaru story,” presumably a launching pad for what future versions of these models could look like. The company hasn’t made it clear if it plans to roll out these models in limited edition numbers like the BRZ STI Special Edition, but don’t be surprised if it does, especially if the public reacts to it as favorably as Subaru hopes.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

What should we know about these three vehicles?

If you’re imagining that these concepts resemble the Subaru Viziv Concept, prepare yourselves to be disappointed. The three cars are actually more production in design, albeit with a few design upgrades that create a little bit of differentiation between them and their standard counterparts.

“The real highlight of this concept is Subaru’s off-road treatment of it”

Let’s start with the XV first, which Subaru is officially calling the “XV Fun Adventure Concept.” Of the three concepts, this is the one that appeals to me the most,
mostly because it finally showcases the XV the way I always envisioned it being: off-road capable. The yellow exterior is a nice touch and the XV isn’t the only concept that received it. But its body color isn’t the real reason why I’m digging this interpretation so much. The real highlight of this concept is Subaru’s off-road treatment of it. It gets new cladding on a number of sections, including the front fascia, side fenders, and the rear diffuser. There’s also a bike rack on the roof and a new set of off-road of tires. Look a little closer and you’ll also notice that the XV’s ride height appears to have been raised slightly, presumably to hammer home the point of it being fully capable of getting down and dirty in less-than-ideal road conditions. It’s unclear if Subaru gave the concept any interior upgrades and since there are no interior photos at this point, your guess is as good as mine.

Subaru XV Fun Adventure Concept

Next up is the Impreza, or as Subaru calls it, the “Impreza Future Sport Concept.” Similar to the XV Fun Adventure Concept, the Impreza gets the full-on mustard yellow body treatment, a color that Subaru seems to have no issue doling out on its vehicles. I don’t mind it personally because I’ve always enjoyed Subaru’s attempts at injecting more personality out of their cars.

“The Impreza gets the full-on mustard yellow body treatment, a color that Subaru seems to have no issue doling out on its vehicles”

As far as the Impreza Future Sport Concept goes, the yellow body is complemented by a sportier look that Subaru achieved by installing redesigned front and rear bumpers, adding aesthetically aggressive centrally mounted exhaust tips, and going for the complete blacked-out treatment on the wheels. Smoked-out taillights and a unique LED light fixtures on the front fascia complete the concept’s attempt at creating a future design treatment of one of Subaru’s most popular models. Once more, there are no interior photos of the Impreza Future Sport Concept so, at this point, it’s best to wait for the car’s official debut in Tokyo to see if there are things in the cabin worth mentioning.

Subaru Impreza Future Sport Concept

Last but definitely not least is the Subaru Outback, which really is the outlier of the three because it’s technically not a concept, not even by the loose standards we’ve attributed to both the XV Fun Adventure Concept and the Impreza Future Sport Concept. On the bright side, the Outback does get some exclusive treatment in both the exterior and interior, including a new front grille and a new set of wheels in the body. Inside, Subaru decked out its resident mid-size SUV with Ultrasuede seats and panels, dark embossed silver accents, and on the tech front, a new eight-inch display that’s equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Subaru Outback Concept

Like I said, none of these concepts appear to have production futures written all over them. That’s not to say that Subaru won’t change its mind because it could still happen. Just don’t expect it to happen anytime soon.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru Outback

Subaru has been doing remarkably well lately, posting impressive growth and sales numbers over the past several years. Helping to fuel that success is a strong stable of vehicles that cover a broad range of segments, including a few that manage to straddle the line between segments and still offer the benefits of both. The Outback is one such vehicle. Framed as the “World’s First Sport Utility Wagon,” the Outback nameplate has been around since 1994 and is currently the brand’s top-selling model, bringing all the capability and utility of a crossover, but in a wagon body style that’s a little closer to a traditional passenger car. It’s a nice combo, and to keep it feeling fresh, Subaru unveiled a mid-cycle update for the Outback at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, giving it new styling, an updated interior, more technology for safety and convenience, and a few bits and pieces that lend it a more premium feel.

The appeal for something like this is clear, and on paper, it looks like it should do well amongst buyers looking for a non-SUV that fits their particular active lifestyle. But does the 2018 Outback have what it takes to steal sales from folks more inclined to get a crossover? Read on for details.

Update 6/23/2017: The 2018 Subaru Outback is currently in preparation to roll into dealers in the coming weeks, and we now have full pricing information. Compared to the outgoing model, the Outback gets a mild price increase that ranges between $250 and $495, depending on the trim level. The base model officially starts out at $25,895. Check out the prices section below for full details on model and option pricing.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru Outback

The Subaru Outback has always been the Boy Scout of the car/wagon/crossover crew, with its standard AWD and rugged, foul-weather-defeating demeanor. While that demeanor won’t likely change, reports say the Outback is getting a Legacy-style work-over for the 2015 model year and will make its grand entrance at the 2014 New York Auto Show this spring.

Since the Outback is essentially the wagon version of the Legacy, it makes sense the recent changes to the 2015 Legacy would make their way over to the Outback. What this means for the Outback is a new exterior look with a similar reworked grille, headlights and raked windshield. The extra body cladding and plastic bits that make an Outback look like an Outback will surely make their return.

Inside, the same redesigned dashboard, instrument panel and center console with softer touch, more premium materials will be present. The coupe-like look of the new Legacy obviously won’t make the jump as cargo room and rear passenger headroom are bigger priorities in the Outback.

History tells us the powertrain offerings will be identical as well. The new Legacy offers two engine choices: a 2.5-liter flat-four making 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque and the 3.6-liter flat-six putting out 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, both engines are stuck with CVT transmissions with no conventional manual on the horizon.

Update 05/27/2016: Subaru has released pricing for the 2017 Outback. The base 2.5i trim starts at $25,645 while the range-topping Touring trim starts at $39,070.

PostHeaderIcon Camaro Thinks It’s a Transformer, Tries to Hump a Subaru!

Camaro-subaru-crash-0

In what is quite possibly the weirdest crash of all time, a red Chevrolet Camaro was found sitting on top of a Subaru Outback in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Tennessee. Apparently nobody knows how this happened, so feel free to come up with your own theory.

Ours is that this Camaro is a secret killer robot and for some strange reason it found the poor Subaru threatening and tried to kill it by sitting on it. The Chevy is fat enough to suffocate the petit Japanese. Either that, or a giant came, picked the Camaro up and put it on top of the Outback!

The owner of the Subaru was in the store when the incident happened and the driver of the Camaro was seen jumping out of the car without any injuries. So nobody was hurt in this most baffling of car accidents. The driver of the Camaro will undoubtedly be questioned about how he managed to pull this thing off and he will surely be subjected to alcohol and drug tests as well.

We are going to keep our ears to the ground and find out how exactly this happened. We’ll keep you posted as the story develops.
