Subaru - Exiga [2]

Original name: スバル エクシーガ


The EXIGA Concept is a 7-seater touring wagon, which has achieved a roomy interior that can comfortably accommodate seven adult passengers and also offers exhilarating driving performance. FHI’s many years of technical expertise in packaging for touring wagons, an underslung Horizontally- Opposed engine with excellent balance and a Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system underpinned by the engine are combined in this concept car.

  • Thanks to its ultra-large glass roof and theater layout with front-to-rear hip point distance, openness and comfort permeate the interior space, where passengers can enjoy a good view from any seat.
  • Powerful yet smooth driving thanks to the 2.0-liter Horizontally-Opposed turbo engine mated with a 5-speed automatic transmission that makes precise control possible.
  • The body coated in a vivid “candy red pearl” coloring expresses an uplifting feeling that makes the car’s presence felt.

Far and beyond, in comfort. A Touring 7-seater for an exhilarating and liberating drive: The Exiga Concept.

Aim of Development

The keyword is “7-Seater Panoramic Touring” .

The Exiga Concept is a completely new 7-seater proposal which has an exceptional balance of roomy space with agile and easy driving even while comfortably seating 7 passengers. This was made possible by integrating Subaru’s packaging expertise cultivated over many years with the touring wagon, with the driving core technology leveraging Symmetrical AWD with a Horizontally-Opposed engine at its core. Subaru offers new and fun driving performance and a luxurious space of relaxation for all passengers.

Main Features

A lofty 360-degree panorama view

To create a spacious and ample interior that is pleasant for all 7 passengers, we have incorporated a super-size glass roof. To ensure that all seats have nice panoramic views, the seats are gradually higher toward the back in a theater layout.

Visibility around the vehicle is further secured by eight view monitors in the instrument panel. Combined with excellent direct visibility, there is no need to be anxious about maneuvering the vehicle.

A combination of pleasant driving and a comfortable ride With the excellent weight balance of Subaru’s unique Symmetrical AWD coming from its low center of gravity and the newly developed chassies that offers innovative driving, we have balanced pleasant driving and a comfortable ride typical of a Subaru, all while securing interior comfort for 7 passengers.

For the power unit, we have combined a 2-liter Horizontally-Opposed turbo engine that balances power feeling that is characteristic of a higher displacement naturally-aspirated (NA) engine and excellent mileage, with a precisely controlling 5-speed automatic transmission. This allows for powerful and smooth driving, even with 7 passengers.

Design

The fusion of function and beauty, combining agile and reassuring driving performance with enriched interior space, all suggest the direction of Subaru design.

Exterior

The airy and enriched interior space was rendered with a body consisting of a firm surface texture that suggests superb athletic ability, like a well-proportioned athlete’s body. The bright candy red and pearlescent coloring expresses its unparalleled presence, well-defined dimensions, and powerful dynamism. While creating an exterior that is suggestive of its airy cabin space, we have optimized the A-pillar angle for good visibility. For the side rear view camera, we have incorporated a wedge-shape to render the momentum from the A-pillar flow. We used LED for the headlights and created a unique design that combines function and playfulness.

Interior

The theme is a luxurious and adult space that offers relaxation. The bright and high-quality leather interior using mostly pearl white and blue suggests the refreshing and luxurious feel of being on a cruiser deck. Additionally, a clear blue display zone that stretches from left to right has been installed in the instrumental panel. This shows many faces, at times a safe range of view and at times entertainment for its passengers. The seats securely support the bodies of passengers while in motion and also offer convenience with versatile arranging. The seats in the back are equipped with folding tables similar to passenger airplanes. A soothing space is rendered at night with indirect lighting on the ceiling and side doors, giving this a different look from daytime.
