Tokyo Show 2013 Highlights: Subaru Levorg Concept

The Subaru Levorg sports tourer concept has been previewed at the Tokyo motor show.

The Levorg concept, named by combining the words Legacy, Revolution and Touring, made its debut at the Tokyo show.

It was shown with two types of powertrain; the first was a new horizontally opposed 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol boxer engine, the other a similar unit displacing 2 litres.

Subaru claims that both have the power to make "driving smooth and lively", and that the engines offer "superb driving pleasure and extraordinary environmental performance".

Both transmit drive to the road through Subaru's Lineartronic CVT (or Sport Lineartronic in the case of the 2.0-litre engine) and familiar all-wheel-drive powertrain.

The 1.6-litre engine is claimed to output 168bhp and 175lb ft, while its claimed average economy is 49mpg. Subaru states that, with this engine, a full tank of fuel will allow owners to cover over 620 miles at an average speed of 62mph.

The 2.0-litre is notably more powerful, producing 296bhp and 295lb ft, but predictably it's less economical, with a claimed average of 37mpg.

Modern equipment in the Levorg includes 'Eyesight', a lane keeping assistance system that can control the steering, a feature that prevents excessive unintended acceleration in reverse, hazard avoidance and adaptive cruise control.

A production version of the Levorg is already in the works, says the firm, and will be launched in Japan in Spring 2014.
