Subaru is set to reveal it's Exiga concept seven-seater touring wagon at the Tokyo motor show later this month.

Aggressively styled and particularly eye-catching when finished in a red paint-scheme with 19-inch wheels, Exiga is set to become a design and styling reference point for future Subaru seven-seater wagons.

Showcasing traditional Subaru design cues such as all-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2-litre boxer engine, Exiga harps back to the SVX sports coupe design language of the mid 1990's which featured a glass-to-glass cockpit.

Subsequently Exiga features a glass roof and large windows, and theatre-like passenger layout with front-to-rear hip point distance with successive passenger seated slightly higher to ensure unencumbered visibility.

Without a rear view mirror eight view monitors in the instrument panel mounted in a panoramic shaped screen ensure confident maneuverability.

Two additional television monitors inside - one for movies and games, one for satellite navigation - ensure passengers are entertained while the driver is guided. Overall interior ambience is enhanced by blue-toned mood lighting.

Keen on retaining its strong station-wagon model range, Subaru has pushed the envelope with the Exiga design, employing its experience in passenger packaging and driving dynamics with a fresh styling departure. In concept form it will come equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission.
