The Subaru Cross Sport Design concept has been seen for the first time at the Tokyo motor show.

Subaru defines the concept as a combination of 'sport' and 'utility'. It's claimed to feature "easy seat access, a comfortable interior, and abundant luggage space".

The concept is 4300mm long and weighs just 1250kg, and is stated to display what Subaru thinks to be future direction for urban SUVs.

Details are few, but it's reputed to feature a horizontally opposed engine that transmits power through a CVT to the rear wheels.

This appears to be based on the rwd BRZ, just 100mm longer. Apart from the CVT I like it but not sure it is the comfy car that people have come to expect!
