The Subaru Exiga Crossover 7 has been released in Japan, adding rough and tumble design enhancements to the seven-seat tallboy wagon.
The Exiga Crossover 7 appears almost identical to the Crossover 7 concept that debuted around 18 months ago at the 2013 Tokyo motor show, blending the styling of the high-riding, hard-wearing Outback wagon with the three-row Liberty Exiga people-mover.
Subaru Australia has no plans to offer the Crossover 7 in our market, however, with a company spokeswoman today confirming the new model is intended only for the Japanese market.
The Subaru Exiga Crossover 7 gets black plastic cladding around its lower panel edges and wheel arches, front and rear metal scuff plates, and black and silver roof rails, in addition to revised suspension that gives it 170mm of ground clearance (20mm higher than the standard Exiga).
Other unique design elements include an enlarged grille with horizontal chrome slats, C-shaped LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a tailgate spoiler.
The cabin stands out with two-tone tan and black upholstery. The front seats have eight-way electric adjustment and heaters, while leather/suede upholstery is available as an option.
The latest version of Subaru’s EyeSight advanced driver assistance system also comes standard in the Crossover 7.
The Exiga Crossover 7 is powered by the same 2.5-litre four-cylinder boxer petrol engine as the regular Exiga.
The Liberty Exiga was axed from Subaru’s Australian showrooms last year after five years in the local market.
