The Viziv-7 Concept is the forerunner to an upcoming seven-seat SUV that will replace the brand’s Tribeca. The futuristic design reportedly not going to be carried through to the production vehicle, however the size of the concept is supposed to preview the direction that the automaker is taking.

Although powertrain details have not been released, the Subaru SUV can be expected to have full-time symmetrical all-wheel drive as standard, some type of four- or six-cylinder boxer engine, and a continuously variable transmission.
“The concept expresses our core brand values, safety, dependability, capability for outdoor activities and a forward-looking attitude,” said Takeshi Tachimori, corporate executive vice president, Fuji Heavy Industries, LTD. “We know customers in this segment want a full-sized vehicle and the next 3-row from Subaru will be the biggest Subaru vehicle ever.”
