Impreza crossover is longer and higher, and has a longer wheelbase than a standard Impreza
19 April 2011

Subaru is using Shanghai to preview an Impreza crossover with this concept, called XV.

The four-wheel-drive show car is a little longer than the regular Impreza but around 20cm higher.

Its wheelbase is only slightly longer than an Impreza’s, though, indicating that it’s likely to share a basic platform.

Subaru describes the car as "a new generation of crossover vehicle, blending exceptional SUV practicality with a fashionable form”.

Subaru has already used the XV name in the past 12 months. At last year’s Geneva motor show, it revealed a jacked-up version of the Impreza known as XV and based on the US-only Outback Sport.
