Next gen Subaru XV (Crosstrek) to feature e-boxer engine, electrified by Toyota's hybrid tech

Next gen Subaru XV (Crosstrek) to feature e-boxer engine, electrified by Toyota's hybrid tech 01

At the recent meeting of the minds between Toyota, Subaru, and Mazda to unveil a series of new internal combustion engines, a current-gen Subaru Crosstrek (formerly known as XV; a name no longer used) was there, all shrouded in camouflage.

It would've made no sense otherwise โ€“ given the car is already on sale โ€“ save for the fact the hood cutout showcases the next-generation Subaru e-Boxer hybrid engine, reports Japanese media Kuruma News.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

This engine is a evolved version of Subaru's electrified engine, and the main change this time is that it tacked on with Toyota's Hybrid System; the previous-gen engine utilised Subaru's in-house technology.

With this series-parallel system, Kuruma News says that it's 'almost exclusively for Subaru', as the hardware needs to combine with a mechanical all-wheel drive (the famed Symmetrical AWD system), for example.

Toyota's current crop of AWD hybrid cars are based on the e-Four system, all driven by electric motors.

This collaboration is the next step in an earlier announcement, whereby Subaru of America confirmed to Automotive News Europe that a "Toyota-sourced battery [and electric components] joined with a boxer engine" is due to come down the line.

Specifications for this new powertrain hasn't been shared just yet, though it's reported that the engine will make its proper debut at this November's 2024 LA Auto Show.
