Aside from showing off the Levorg, Subaru also showed off a pair of concept cars at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013. Both models are actually study concepts, showing off the brand's new direction both in terms of design and technology but they could also be a brand-new compact crossover as well as the all-new Outback albeit in concept form.

Subaru Viziv Evolution Concept

In order to demonstrate the Subaru brand's future direction, both aesthetically and technologically, Subaru will debut in Japan the SUBARU VIZIV EVOLUTION CONCEPT. This is the advanced form of the future-generation crossover concept model named SUBARU VIZIV CONCEPT which was exhibited at shows such as the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show. SUBARU VIZIV EVOLUTION CONCEPT carries a power unit which represents one of the ideas Subaru has for the future of its powertrains. It is a plug-in hybrid system that consists of the 1.6-liter Horizontally-Opposed direct injection turbo DIT engine, combined with high-torque-compatible Lineartronic (CVT) with one front motor and two rear motors. In addition, Subaru will illustrate its goal for the future of safety technology with the adoption of an innovative autopilot system. SUBARU VIZIV EVOLUTION CONCEPT is an embodiment of Subaru's vision of the future.

In a dinner held with the Philippine-based Subaru Society, it's been reveled that the all-new Outback will gain a more crossover (SUV) body, and the Viziv Concept could actually point towards what could potentially form the basis of the Outback.

Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept

SUBARU CROSS SPORT DESIGN CONCEPT is a combination of 'sport' and 'utility' – both aspects which have been refined by Subaru over the years. This model has a compact body with overall length of 4,300mm that allows brisk driving and yet makes available features such as easy seat access, comfortable interior, and abundant luggage space. SUBARU CROSS SPORT DESIGN CONCEPT is what Subaru perceives to be the next trend in urban SUVs.
