Car Tech Video: Tokyo auto show: Subaru Exiga concept

1:01 /

Even Subaru has some LCD tricks up its sleeve.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> The Subaru Exiga doesn't look like much of a concept does it? Which is probably good because Subaru says that this thing is on its way to production sooner or later. Not that we're blown away by the outside but inside the huge overhead glass really opens things up and that's doable in production today. Now check out the screens all over the place, including a narrow wide one in the front ceiling that acts as a digital rearview mirror. That's actually a big idea because with the amount of rearward visual occlusion in cars today from pillars, to dropdown monitors, the old fashioned rearview mirror is just about useless. The other screens all around the knee bolster at the front dash are a bit much; power would come from a 2 liter Turbo 4 hooked up to a five-speed automatic and of course all-wheel drive and all of that is very doable. ^M00:00:54 [ Music ] ^M00:01:01
