The latter concept’s name is self explanatory. It previews the design of the next generation Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback, which will see the light of day in H2 2016 as a 2017 model. The next Impreza will also be the first model to ride on an all new platform that will underpin all future models, and will feature an exterior design that looks more dynamic and bolder than the outgoing model.

Subaru will use the Viziv Future Concept to demonstrate certain features that could be filtered down to future models. It has a downsized turbocharged engine on the front axle and an electric motor at the rear, which will offer a symmetrical all-wheel-drive system without the need of a propeller shaft.
