SUBARU CONCEPT: This is all Subaru (and joint-venture partner Toyota) is saying so far about their sports car concept that's due in Geneva.

Subaru will be showcase its Boxer sports car joint venture (with Toyota) concept at the 2011 Geneva international auto show that opens on March 1.

It’s based on an all-new platform and, as the name suggests, has the familiar horizontally opposed engine technology. Trick is, it’s only rear, not all-wheel, drive.

The Subaru Impreza Concept will also be “in the metal” at the show as the first concept to be released under Subaru’s new international brand strategy of ‘Confidence in Motion’. Subaru describes the car as “sleek and lean” and “exuding dynamism and elegance”.

For certain it is a spacious and plush four-seater interior that’s 4.52m long, 1,82m wide and 1.43m tall. A new two-litre, four-cylinder, boxer engine is hooked to a Lineartronic constantly variable transmission.
