Subaru’s new Coupe is go! The Japanese firm has confirmed that a concept version of its long-awaited Coupe, jointly developed with Toyota, will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. No pictures have yet been released, but our exclusive renderings give you an idea of how the newcomer will look.

What’s more, the firm has confirmed that the car will be built on an all-new platform, and while the Coupe will feature Subaru’s trademark horizontally-opposed boxer engine, it won’t get the firm’s symmetrical all-wheel drive. Instead, like to Toyota model, it will be rear-drive, giving the firm a rival to Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe in the US market.

Subaru has also confirmed that it will show its new Impreza Concept, which was first seen at the LA Show last year, and the firm’s new Trezia model which is a B-segment MPV that’s essentially a rebadged version of Toyota’s forthcoming Verso-S.

everything i've heard about the toyota version makes it seem like it won't even have the balls to compete with the genesis coupe

this is ridiculous.

did Toyota Motors not learn from their mistake when they released the MRS Spyder?

did Subaru forget that all their vehicles are AWD and it's what makes Subaru, a Subaru?

Lots of folks up in arms about that. If it works, then good for Subaru. If not, should've seen that one coming.

This isn't an MR-S - not even close. You're comparing a lightweight anemic roadster to a sleek coupe with more storage and 100 extra HP?

Forget about tradition, the car will be lighter and more fun to drive with RWD.
