Default Subaru XV Concept Confirmed For 2011 AIMS




Quote:
Subaru has today confirmed a 2011 Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) debut for its XV crossover concept, but there is no news as yet from Subaru's local arm on the chances of its all-new 2012 Impreza making an appearance.

The XV Concept's AIMS debut will be only its second motor-show tour since its unveiling at Shanghai in April, where it offered the first-ever glimpse of the new Impreza's styling.


Nick Senior, Subaru Australia's Managing Director, said the event will be used to gauge customer interest in a production version of the compact crossover.
“It promises to be a totally new offering. The XV Concept was warmly received in Shanghai and based on the long-term success of Forester and Outback, we can see this type of vehicle could have huge potential in pursuing a new niche in Australia," Mr Senior said.
“XV Concept is fashionable, practical and underpinned by new generation Subaru technology and we’re hopeful there will be a lot of interest.”
As with the new 2012 Impreza, Subaru's new third-generation 2.0 litre boxer-engine drives the XV concept, sending power through the company's symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system.




The Australian International Motor Show opens at 6pm on Friday 1 July and runs through until Sunday 10 July at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Other new models and concepts confirmed for the 2011 AIMS include the Toyota Prius V and Prius C, the new Peugeot 508 sedan and wagon, the Suzuki Swift S-Concept, the Range Rover Evoque, the Toyota FT-86 II Concept, the 2012 Audi A6 and the 2012 Jaguar XF.

Appearances have also been confirmed for BMW's Vision EfficientDynamics super-hybrid concept, along with the all-new Lamborghini Aventador, the Lexus LF-Gh concept, the Mazda Shinari concept, and a preview of Australian carmaker JOSS Developments' upcoming JT1 supercar.

No need. Just look at one of those Ford Fiestas...I guarantee you have one rolling around you somewhere.

It's a very fine update to the current Impreza XV offered outside the US, which is slightly more "Outbacky" than the OBS we get.

Supposedly SOA is looking at bringing it over, no plans yet.

They will nearly assuredly bring XV to production for other markets, so no extra money really needed to bring it to the US... it would have importing costs, but not new production/development costs. Hopefully they will find that selling the XV in the US will help reduce its development costs for the rest of the global market.

15-20,000 Impreza XV Sports for MY 2012 or 2013, please.

Looks a lot like the 2012 Impreza Sport with a couple of decorative options (rims, wheel well protectors, roof rack, etc...). Wonder what the real functional and dollar differences would be. Interested; however, not enough facts to be able to make any sort of judgement at this time.

Plastic cladding & more ground clearance. Was also shown w/panoramic glass roof like in the current Exiga.

if this gets the same mpgs as the '12 impreza and comes to the US, my sister's '08 obs is getting traded in for one of these.
