Subaru Crosstrek Concept Makes North American Debut at 2017 Montreal International Auto ShowBlog Jan 19th, 2017
(MISSISSAUGA) – Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to announce the North American unveiling of the Crosstrek Concept at the 2017 Montreal International Auto Show.
The Subaru Crosstrek Concept is a design concept that places new emphasis on the go-anywhere stance of the Crosstrek, combined with the Subaru Global Platform that will bring Subaru to new levels of world-class safety. Rather than pursuing design for design’s sake, the essence of Subaru’s Concept expresses a distinctive style that conveys the energy and meaningful form of the vehicle.
Main Features of Subaru Concept
The front, sides, and rear are seamlessly joined in the DYNAMIC X SOLID surface structure, creating a three-dimensional and solid body that is a feature of Subaru styling. The dynamism is enhanced by well-placed character lines on the compact body shape. The design expression of “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind,” the value that Subaru provides to its customers, is fully pursued within the limits of the compact crossover model body size. Functionality is an important consideration for every Subaru and as such, this concept’s body styling creates excellent aerodynamic performance without sacrificing useable space or ample road clearance.
The Subaru look is seen in the wide and low stance with its sporty impression, and in the unified three-dimensional structure extending from the hexagonal grille that symbolizes the Subaru identity to the hawk-eye headlights echoing a Boxer engine motif. The front face plays the role of starting point from which the front flows via the sides to the rear, with each part uniting into a solid form.
The rich inflection of the character line extending from the front fender to the door panels and rear shoulder, and the line rising energetically toward the rear from the lower door panel, give dynamism to the solid body surface. The powerfully extended fender flares express the reliability of Subaru All-Wheel Drive. The matte-black cladding running from the front bumper over the wheel arches and side sills to the rear bumper creates a dynamic form expressing all the enjoyment to be expected from a crossover vehicle.
The rear combination lights share the same motif as the headlights, as well as the powerful shoulders over the rear fenders thrusting all the way toward the rear combination lights, express a wide and low stance similar to the front. The tightened cabin silhouette enhances the sporty impression of the nimble crossover style.
