From what we can tell by looking at these photos, the car will feature a very aggressive front end that will have an updated version of the company’s grille, along with a pair of angular headlights. As for the cabin, the concept has polished aluminum and wood surfaces, along with a leather trim and a full glass sunroof. The most interesting feature of the interior would have to be the TV monitor installed inside the steering wheel which shows GPS information and it also has access to the Internet.

The Subaru Advanced Tourer Concept also benefits from the automaker’s crash avoidance system that includes two cameras which are installed above the rear view mirror. These cameras can monitor traffic conditions and they can detect cyclists and pedestrians.

Under the hood we find a glimpse of the car maker’s future engine lineup, as Subaru has downsized its 2.0 and 2.5-liter boxer turbos in order to create a more efficient and cleaner 1.6-liter turbo which is linked to an electric motor. We don’t have any specifications about the output, but the company’s engineers have mentioned that this powertrain can be configured to produce up to 262 hp (for the 2.5-liter turbo variant).

At low speeds for a limited distance the car can be driven in electric-only mode, and it comes with an updated version of the automaker’s symmetrical AWD system that sends the power to all four wheels.
