Vis á VIZ: Subaru Viziv 2 Concept Mimics Latest Legacy Sedan, Isn’t One [2014 Geneva Auto Show]

Subaru VIZIV 2 concept

With the sales-proof Tribeca aging, Subaru desperately needs a new mid-size crossover, and it has been toying with a replacement since last year’s Geneva auto show, when it showed the neat Viziv concept. For this year’s Geneva auto show, Subaru is bringing . . . drumroll please . . . another Viziv concept! This one is dubbed Viziv 2, and Subaru released the closely cropped preview photo you see here to give everyone a heads-up.

We know very little about the Viziv 2, but from what we can see in the teaser photo, it looks a bit closer to production reality than the first Viziv. Note how the lower intakes are now separate from the headlights, which themselves look only slightly jazzed up relative to the 2015 Legacy sedan‘s fare. It remains to be seen how large the Viziv 2 is, or whether it will get a proper five-door body—the Viziv featured two gigantic butterfly doors, not exactly consumer-friendly. Expect full details to emerge closer to the Viziv 2′s March 4 reveal in Switzerland.
