Well, that didn’t take long.
The Subaru LEVORG Concept — it wasn’t so much a concept, actually, but more of a near-production model — made its debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and Subaru isn’t wasting any time developing a multitude of concepts based on the sports wagon.
There are five concepts in total, all of which somehow carry the "LEVORG" nomenclature: the LEVORG STI Performance, the LEVORG Premium Sports, the LEVORG Prova, the LEVORG Syms and, the LEVORG Corazon Sportier.
To be honest, we don’t know a whole lot about these concepts, other than the obvious that they all share the LEVORG name. Other than that, it’s matter of deciphering the names and figuring out which of these concepts will in all likelihood get our attention.
The most obvious is the LEVORG STI Performance, which contains the three most awesome letters of Subaru ’s alphabet: S-T-I. There’s also the LEVORG Premium Sports, which we imagine to be somewhere along the lines of a BRZ -derived sports car that doesn’t pack quite as much power as the STI Performance.
As for the other three, those names (Prova, Syms, and Corazon Sportier) don’t do a whole lot in kick-starting our imaginations. Nevertheless, we’re still looking forward to seeing all five LEVORG concepts when they make their debuts at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon this coming January.

Making its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show, the LEVORG Concept is described as a "sports tourer" that’s actually a near-production model more than it is an actual concept. Sporting a Metallic Blue Grey Steel or a Pearl Crystal White paint finish, the LEVORG Concept has a whole boat of niceties going its way, including the apparent belief from Subaru that this bad boy is not only ready for production, but one that will actually spawn five concepts.
Under its hood, the LEVORG Concept comes with a variety of engines, including a new 1.6-liter DIT direct-injection turbo engine with 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque and a 2.0-liter DIT delivering 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
