The name “Levorg,” which left us scratching our heads, is a combination of the words “Legacy”, “Revolution” and “Touring,” according to Subaru.
Subaru claims the Levorg gives the best in drivability, safety and environmental friendliness, combined with the practicality of a touring car. It is actually being hyped as a sports tourer.
Additionally, Subaru is showcasing its latest technologies with the Levorg, including the powertrain, which contains the newly-developed 1.6L horizontally-opposed direct injection turbo “DIT” engine. Included as well is the next-generation EyeSight with a lot of added safety functions as well as thefacts about three additional concepts to get revealed with the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show along with the Levorg. The Subaru Viziv Evolution Concept, a plug-in hybrid, the Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept, a compact with comfortable interior and abundant luggage space, and also the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept, which features seven seats.
Earlier inside the month it was confirmed that Subaru would cease creation of its unpopular seven-passenger Tribeca in 2014, which leaves us wondering if the Subaru Crossover 7 Concept may be its replacement in the future.
