New Subaru SVX May Be in Development

Rumour has it that Subaru may be developing a spiritual successor to the long-gone SVX model, which could return to the U.S. and Canada by 2017.

“It’s making a comeback, and with a six-cylinder boxer hybrid setup,” an anonymous source has told The source also claims that they’ve seen an early sketch of the upcoming SVX successor, which showed that it will be based on the same modular architecture as several other upcoming Subaru vehicles. According to the rumoured sketch, the car will sport a low-slung look, inspired by the Viziv2 concept, which has debuted at the Geneva Motor Show early in 2014. Another bit of info that came through is that the new SVX may have similar power output as the Tesla Model S, which would equal to an output between 350 and 430 horsepower.

For those who are unfamiliar with the vehicle, the original Subaru SVX was a two-door grand tourer coupe, which was sold between 1991 and 1996. It was Subaru’s first attempt to produce a luxury/performance car, combining two seemingly non-combinable attributes – high performance and comfort. Since the car was released during a financial turmoil in Japan, it didn’t perform as well as it should have, but it seems that Subaru sees potential in it, which is why it is making its possible return.

Subaru spokesman Dominick Infante has refused to comment on this rumour since this would against the company’s policy not to discuss its future endeavours. That being said, according to this story, we should expect to see the new Subaru SVX by 2017 as it’s being built at Subaru’s Indiana plant, based on the Subaru Global Platform. Its possible competitors may end being the Corvette and BMW 3-Series, but that’s yet to be confirmed!
