Tokyo Motor Show 2019: Subaru Levorg Prototype

By CARSIFU | 23 October 2019

TOKYO: The all-new Subaru Levorg Prototype had its world premiere at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019.

The performance wagon, powered by a newly developed 1.8-litre Boxer direct-injection turbo engine, uses the new-generation EyeSight safety techonlogy, which consists of a new stereo camera with wider viewing angle and four radars.

Set to go on sale in Japan in the second half of 2020, the new Levorg wagon comes with a 360-degree view system around the vehicle and an expanded range of pre-collision braking operations to cover crossing and turning at intersections with low visibility.

A vehicle locator precisely detects the vehicle position by using information from GPS and Michibiki (Quasi-Zenith Satellite System).

In combination with high-definition map data, the vehicle recognizes the shape of highway ahead, reduces speed before going into a curve and assists hands-free driving in traffic congestion.

Based on Subaru’s “Grand Touring philosophy,” the all-new Levorg also uses an improved Subaru Global Platform with higher body rigidity.
