Rally car fans now have the opportunity to view rally car drivers in action from within the vehicle’s cabin through an online video. Subaru decided to create a video of David Higgins and co-driver Craig Drew racing at the Lake Superior Performance Rally. This was one of their victories that ultimately led them to a perfect season. When watching the video it is as if you are in the cabin with the duo, especially since you have the capability to get a 360 degree view. You are able to watch the video through the Subaru Motorsports App or on YouTube. Viewers even have the option to utilize a virtual reality headset to interact with the video. The video is titled Rallying in 360° with Peer-Thru Technology. Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood urges you to check out this interactive video.
Subaru unveiled two concept cars at the recent Tokyo Motor Show. Both show the new direction of the company’s design language: “Dynamic & Solid Subaru.” The Impreza 5-door concept has a softer rear end than previous models and a sharp line stretches from the front fender to the rear shoulder. The vehicle will offer more luxury than ever before. The second concept car, the Viziv compact crossover, embodies the same design language. Although the car will not be making it to the production lines, components of the vehicle will be utilized in future vehicles. The Viziv is equipped with a reengineered version of the EyeSight stereo camera system. The system gathers vital information using all-direction radar, advanced GPS, and map data to accurately isolate the vehicle’s location in order to semi-autonomously drive the concept. This enhanced EyeSight system will also have the capability to park itself. Under the hood lies the new generation electric motor connected to a turbo engine. Subaru has a goal of introducing an autonomous vehicle by 2020. If you have not yet seen these concept vehicles, Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood urges you to check them out online.
