Subaru reveals Levorg concept car\'s engine displacement

Not a 2.5-liter turbo unit

Could the next-generation turbocharged Subaru Legacy have a smaller-displacement engine instead of its current 2.5-liter mill? It\'s possible since Fuji Heavy Industries, the maker of Subaru vehicles, has revealed the engine displacement of its Levorg concept car, which, as we reported the other day, will make its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.

According to FHI, the Levorg will feature an all-new 1.6-liter horizontally opposed boxer engine with direct-injection turbo technology that \"is designed to offer smooth performance and greater environmental efficiency.\"

So, with FHI hinting that the Levorg is the next-generation Legacy midsize wagon--thanks to the name being derived from the words \"legacy,\" \"revolution\" and \"touring\"--could the actual production model that\'s slated to be launched next year have a much smaller engine? It\'s possible since the current-model Forester\'s turbo engine has also been downsized to 2.0-liter from the previous-generation model\'s 2.5-liter.
