unveiled at the 2014 geneva international motor show, subaru’s viziv 2 plug-in hybrid concept introduced the japanese manufacturer’s future vision of innovation and the future direction of the brand. employing a four-door body, the plug-in hybrid boasts a 1.6-liter horizontally-opposed direct injection turbocharged engine, combined with a high-torque-compatible ‘lineartronic’ system that integrates one front motor and two rear motors. the components for the hybrid system still maintain subaru’s unique symmetrical all-wheel drive layout however, delivering superior driveability based on its low center of gravity and weight balance.
