Subaru has unveiled the Advanced Tourer Concept at Tokyo Motor Show.
It features an horizontally opposed Boxer engine linked to a hybrid system. The 1.6 litre turbo engine includes direct fuel injection and showcases technology that will guide the brand’s future engine strategy. It is mated to a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission, refined to meet the high power output of the turbo engine.
A single motor hybrid system is used for its simple structure and light weight. This system has an Electric Vehicle mode which allows All-Wheel Drive motion using only the motor at start-up and low speed. When decelerating, the regenerating mechanism uses the motor as a power generator.
The ATC’s roof is made of glass, adding to its spacious cabin feel.
A large monitor built into the steering wheel allows access to maps, television and internet.
