Beyond that, Subaru is keeping mum for now on any more details about the new addition to the lineup, though the concept featured a 2.0-liter boxer engine and continuously variable transmission. The image gives us a glimpse of the headlight and wheel, as well as a suggestion of the wheel arch, front bumper, grille and hood.
