The XV Crosstrek Hybrid, as the car will be known in America, features Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive system. No powertrain details have been released, but the XV Hybrid is likely to feature a petrol internal combustion engine to increase its appeal with American customers. In the UK the XV is currently available with a pair of petrol engines (1.6- or 2.0-litre) and a 2.0-litre diesel.
Information on Subaru's performance car concept is even more scarce. Coming from Subaru, a flat-four boxer engine would seem likely, and the car could be an eagerly anticipated flagship version of the BRZ coupé.
