Subaru today unveiled their XV Concept cross-over car at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show (China).

The bold, fashionable, fun-themed design is a progression of Subaru’s long-running sports utility vehicle story.

Underpinned by a horizontally opposed Boxer engine and symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Subaru XV Concept is a solid yet stylish package.

It features Subaru’s new hexagonal grille design with winged motif and hawk-eye headlights.

The black lower bumper and wheel arch protection, combined with the car’s metallic highlights, underline its cross-over status.

The distinctive five-spoke alloy wheel design features silver spokes, black rims and clear blue centre caps, complementing the car’s strength and road presence.

The XV concept roof features a continuous glass sheet, while metallic and clear-finish roof rails are another positive visual cue.

A light interior leather treatment contrasts with the darker tones of other cabin features.

A large touch panel multi-function display in the centre panel enables easy navigation and audio control while displaying vehicle information.

Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “XV Concept clearly flags Subaru’s intentions to capture even more of the cross-over market in the future and this stunning new design no doubt provides some clues as to what we may expect.”

“Sub-Compact SUVs are a growing opportunity and XV Concept is the type of vehicle that will attract even more customers.”
