First Look: Subaru EXIGA Concept

We can now reveal that Subaru will pull the curtain off their EXIGA Concept at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show.  This wagon is meant to really drive home Subaru's theme for the 40th Tokyo Motor Show, "Fantastic Moments."

Subaru says that "The keyword is '7-Seater Panoramic Touring.'"  And although their keyword is really four words, they have certainly accomplished their goal of crating a wide-open wagon to comfortable hold seven.

The EXIGA Concept is a has so match glass you can barely distinguish inside from outside.  The spacious interior looks wide open with its mostly glass roof, large pane glass windows, and seats spaced well-apart. 

This new concept has what looks like three different television monitors inside: one for movies and games, one for satellite navigation, and a panormic shaped screen replacing the rear-view mirror.   Meant to simulate the feeling of being on a peaceful flight deck, the cabin has blue mood lighting for that tranquil feeling at night, and fold-down tables for the back passengers.  Comfortable-looking leather seats round out the interior.  The rear seats are even a little more elevated to form a "theater layout," ensuring everyone in the wagon will have a nice view.

Under the hood of the EXIGA Concept is a 2.0-liter, horizontally-opposed, turbo-charged engine.  This car has a five-speed automatic transmission, excellent ballance, and a Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to give the driver "precise control," states the release.

With its somewhat-more-aggressive front, the car looks to have a great amount of potential to head into production.  There are obviously features of the car that would need to be changed in order to make production a reality, Subaru looks to have done a good job at combining neo-futuristic elements, show their potential at creating a sought-after wagon.
