The Viziv Future Concept features a more pared-back look than last year's Viziv 2 Concept but keeps that car's large, rounded fog lights and aggressive front bumper.
Subaru says it has linked radar sensors and GPS mapping to its camera-based Eyesight system, effectively giving the concept 360-degree crash avoidance capability. The Viziv is said to be capable of autonomous driving on the motorway and autonomous parking.
The Viziv's AWD hybrid powertrain has the same 1.6-litre diesel engine as the Levorg, working in conjunction with an electric motor located at the rear. In the Viziv Concept 2, a single electric motor was used to power the front wheels alongside the engine, while dual motors supplied torque to the rear wheels.
The four-seat cabin, which is accessed via a rear-hinged door arrangement, features a digital instrument cluster and central infotainment screen. A camera system is also used to monitor the driver's alertness.
The first Subaru Viziv concept was revealed at the Tokyo motor show in early 2013, with two updated versions shown in late 2013 and 2014. While not previewing any single car, the concept is instead designed to show how autonomous driving functions might be applied to Subaru's future production models.
Subaru has also showcased a concept previewing the next-generation Impreza in Tokyo.
