Subaru will reveal two concepts at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Subaru will reveal two new concept cars at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show later this month — the VIZIV Future and the Impreza 5-Door concepts to preview the brand's future design language.

VIZIV Future concept

The Japanese automaker says the VIZIV Future concept is designed to show Subaru's future vision by incorporating automatic driving functions and advanced safety technology. Subaru explains that VIZIV is a name derived from Vision for Innovation.

The VIZIV Future is an SUV-type concept that comes with sharp-looking headlights, wide bumpers, a hexagonal grill and wide fenders. The concept is also fitted with distinctive wheels, an aggressive rear bumper, a roof-mounted spoiler and wraparound taillights.

In addition, the concept is equipped with the brand's EyeSight technology, which features all-direction radar sensing that detects vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians and lane markers on the road. The EyeSight technology also has collision avoidance features, adaptive cruise control and automatic braking. Furthermore, the VIZIV Future concept comes with autonomous driving technology that can park the car by itself.

Subaru has yet to release the powertrain details of the VIZIV Future concept, but the Japanese automaker did say that it will be powered by a downsized turbocharged hybrid boxer engine.
