After chopping the seven-passenger Tribeca in 2014, Subaru is preparing to re-enter the three-row, mid-size crossover SUV segment. With the Viziv-7 idea shown at Los Angeles Auto Show, the name Viziv stands for Vision For Innovation, the Japanese manufacturer provides champion look yet at what’s to come.
With 204.7 inches long and sitting on a 117.7-inch wheelbase, the Viziv-7 is some 15 inches longer than Subaru’s Outback and its wheelbase is more than nine inches bigger. The Viziv-7 also is large than most thought three-row, mid-size crossover SUVs. While the Buick Enclave, the Chevrolet Traverse, the Dodge Durango and the Ford Flex steer on longer wheelbase, the Subaru’s general length is large than all four. Additionally, the Viziv-7’s 79.9-inch width dimension and 72.0-inch height dimension (73.2 inches including the roof rails) are at top in current offering.
If the Viziv-7’s magnitudes move over to the production SUV car, Subaru’s brand-new SUV car promises to dwarf the other versions in the roll as it strives to move far beyond the incommodious Tribeca.
Large and cubic, the Viziv-7 sports an audacious opening and large fog lights, while its light design and framework chart reflection those of the smaller Outback. If earlier Subaru ideas are any lead, the production SUV car can be evaluated to wear much docile body than the Viziv-7. We believe the production SUV car will go by the name Ascent, given that Subaru recently enlisted that appellation with the U.S. Trademark Office. Likely to stand up against a Mazda CX-9 and a Ford Explorer. We expect the Ascent to offer a turbocharged four-cylinder motor, although the 3.6-liter six-cylinder combatant motor that’s elective in the Outback is also an expectation. Subaru says its three-row crossover will be available in early 2018.
