Subaru has unveiled the hybrid Viziv Adrenaline, a rough-and-tumble concept car that could be a preview of its next Crosstrek. It's a smallish SUV with protective plastic cladding at the corners and styling that's a bit more outlandish than its past concepts. It's mostly a styling exercise meant to show us what it might do next, and could presage future EV or plug-in hybrid crossovers.

Subaru teased the concept, saying it used its e-Boxer hybrid powertrain, built under license from Toyota. That's an intriguing bit of info, as that engine combo offers more electric-only range than the current PHEV Crosstrek. Quite a few car companies at Geneva, especially BMW, are touting PHEVs that can be driven on a daily basis with no pollution, with a gas engine that makes longer trips more practical. Subaru didn't say whether the vehicle will enter production, but based on the gnarly looks and potential powertrain, we certainly hope so.
