First picture shown by Japanese media ahead of Tokyo motor show unveiling
22 October 2019

This is reported to be the first image of the new Subaru Levorg, which is set to be unveiled at the Tokyo motor show tomorrow.

The image - published by Japanese media - suggests the new Levorg will be considerably more angular than the current model, taking cues from the Viziv Tourer Concept shown last year.

Styling highlights include the sizeable wheel arches and rear spoiler, plus the horizontal taillight designs and dramatic grille.

The report suggests the interior of the car will be largely conventional, but boosted by a suite of updated driver assistance technologies, which have helped earn Subaru high safety ratings, most notably in the US market.

The vehicle on display is said to be a near production prototype rather than a concept.

Certainly looks more aggresive and modern, I just hope the engines and gearboxes are too!

A fine looking motor. Are Subaru going to persist with the weedy N/A 2.0 148 BHP petrol engine instead of the 1.6 168 BHP D.I.T. turbo or even more appealing 2.0 296 BHP turbo engines in it  for potential UK customers though?
