Subaru will preview their Advanced Touring Concept, said to be the next-generation Legacy, next month at the Tokyo Motor Show. Unlike the high-roofed Subaru Outback, the Advanced Touring Concept is a sleek looking wagon that suggests Subaruís engine downsizing strategy.

Exterior wise, the concept features chiselled lines and large, muscular fenders. In consistent with current design trends, a huge grille, slanted headlights and large air vents adorns the front end. At the rear end, rectangular exhaust tips sits on the sporty rear diffuser and wide rear side fenders gives the concept a more beefy, aggressive stance.

Lots of aluminium and wood trimmings are used in the interior cabin and they might end up on the production model. Highly stylised individual sports seats are used for both front and rear seating arrangement. An interesting feature in the cabin is a monitor screen situated on the steering wheel. This screen will have several usages such as a GPS navigation system, direct access to the internet and also Subaruís EyeSight crash avoidance system. The EyeSight system detects pedestrians and cyclists by monitoring the front sightlines with two cameras mounted above the rear view mirror.

Under the hood, the Advanced Touring Concept will feature a new powertrain, a 1.6 litre Boxer engine with direct fuel injection and turbocharger. This engine is expected to be used on Subaruís upcoming vehicles. The engine will team up with a Subaru-designed single motor hybrid system with lithium-ion batteries. Power is sent to the wheels by means of a new version of the automakerís symmetrical all-wheel drive system.

Other than this concept, Subaru will also show their other upcoming vehicles which includes the long anticipated BRZ sports car, the STI-tuned S206 (a modified 4-door WRX STI) and the Impreza G4.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
