The front end looks properly aggressive, with LED headlights carrying the same C shape as previous Subarus, but with a bit more of that concept-car flourish. There look to be some large air intakes just under the lights, as well.

The XV will bear the designation "Fun Adventure Concept," and will gain a number of exterior features to beef up its off-road capabilities. The yellow exterior is accented by new cladding on the front fascia, side fenders, and rear diffuser.

Subaru XV And Impreza Get Rugged , Sporty Makeovers For Tokyo . The two concept cars will join four other special edition and concept vehicles in Tokyo .

The Outback gains a more high-quality finish in the cabin, complete with "Ultrasuede" seats and panels, dark embossed silver accents, and a new eight-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto equipped. The exterior also receives a more luxurious treatment, including an exclusive grille and wheels.

The Impreza, meanwhile, opts for a sportier makeover. Dubbed the "Future Sport Concept," the Impreza was given a lower center of gravity, along with redesigned front and rear bumpers, and more aggressive-looking, centrally mounted exhaust tips. Blacked out wheels and smoked out taillights, along with unique LED light fixtures on the front fascia give the concept a unique look.

The XV and Impreza will be joined by four three unique Subaru special vehicles. The aforementioned STI S208, an even more aggressive version of the STI, of which just 450 examples will be built, the BRZ STI Sport Special Edition, of which just 100 examples will be built, and the Viviz Performance concept, a preview of the next-generation WRX/STI, will all be on display when doors open in Tokyo.

The company says that these new concept cars and special edition vehicles will preview the "new Subaru story," and will give visitors an experience that will "bring smiles to their faces." It’s unclear whether the XV and Impreza concepts will influence any production-going variants, but we have our fingers crossed.

It rises from the ashes of the Tribeca.The Ascent offers standard seating for eight, thanks to three-across benches in both the second and third rows. A pair of second-row captain’s chairs, a no-cost option on all but the base Ascent, limits seating to seven. Regardless, the three-row Subaru provides 20 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third row and 73 cubes with both the second and third rows folded.
