For a relatively small automaker, Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru) sure does have some big plans for this year's Frankfurt Motor Show (http://www.autoblog.com/frankfurt-auto-show/). Not only is it showing a "technology concept" to preview the BRZ (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/brz) rear-drive coupe it's developing with Toyota (http://www.autoblog.com/toyota), but the Japanese automaker is also set to unveil the XV crossover there, as well.

Previewed by the XV concept unveiled in Shanghai (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/04/19/subaru-xv-concept-crossover-unveiled-in-shanghai/) a few months ago and the rudimentary sketch (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/08/09/subaru-teases-xv-crossover-ahead-of-frankfurt/) from earlier in August, the new crossover is essentially a high-riding Impreza (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/impreza/) that's a further extension of the Outback Sport. Considering how imprezive that vehicle can be - particularly in WRX (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/wrx/) or STi (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/wrx+sti/) trim - that could prove a good thing. We'll reserve judgement until the vehicle's unveiling, but in the meantime Fuji Heavy has hit us with the teaser image above to keep our interests piqued.

Follow the jump (http://www.thesubaruforum.com/2011/08/31/subaru-teases-xv-crossover-ahead-of-frankfurt-debut/#continued) for the press release, containing dimensions and powertrain for both new debuts.Continue reading Subaru teases XV crossover ahead of Frankfurt debut (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/08/31/subaru-teases-xv-crossover-ahead-of-frankfurt-debut/)
