Subaru unveiled the most recent version of the Viziv Concept car at the Geneva Motor Show, this time with four doors.
It’s a stunning machine for sure, but we’re more interested in the technology under that beautiful body.
According to Subaru, it offers both driving performance and environmental friendliness. That’s an impressive claim, but it does make sense considering the powertrain Subaru chose for this specific concept.
It’s powered by a plug-in hybrid system that consists of a 1.6-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection turbo Boxer engine, combined with high-torque-compatible Lineartronic (CVT) with one front motor and two rear motors.
This means it’s still an all-wheel drive car, but the system works in a way we haven’t seen or experienced before. The independent-rear-motor-driven Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system provides fine-tuned control of the four wheels to match the travel environment and road surface conditions.
We’ve attached to videos for your viewing pleasure. The first is a promo for the new Viziv, while the second explains the technology behind the car.
