Subaru has recently revealed its newest creation yet, the XV model, at the 2011 Thai Motor Expo, which will be targeted for the Asian Continent.

After making quite a splash with its BRZ sports car at the Los Angeles Auto Show with the concept and at the Tokyo Motor Show with the production version, the Japanese based automaker is making a step forward and places its XV model into the spotlights at the latest automotive event, the 2011 Thai Motor Expo. Subaru says that the XV is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder horizontally-opposed Boxer engine, being the company’s trademark layout, which is developing a total output of 150 PS and it has a peak torque of 196 Nm, and the unit is coming with DAVCS (Dual Active Valve Control System).

The new Subaru XV is also coming with the Symmetrical all-wheel drive technology and it has the Lineartronic CVT with manual selection. The Subaru XV is 4.450 mm long and it has a 2.635 mm wheelbase, being actually 35 mm and 15 mm longer than the Impreza hatchback, and even if this concept isn’t quite new, the carmaker has dropped the Impreza name from the model. Subaru says that the XV revealed at the Thai Motor Expo has been made in Japan and it will go to MI markets such as Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore.
