According to the latest reports from Japan's Best Car Magazine, it appears that besides the new Toyobaru Sports Car, the Tokyo Motor Show will also see a new version of the Subaru Justy. The new car will include redesigned front and rear bumpers, new headlights as well as a new front grille.
Unfortunately these are the only details available for the moment, but as soon as we will find out something we will let you know!
Interestingly, the new Subaru Justy has some elements endowed with an aerodynamic design. These elements include the newly designed colored front bumper that now comes with an air-dam flap at the bottom for better airflow control under the floor.
Likewise, the front lower ends of the fender liners are now extending downwards – similar to flaps – to direct the air coming from the front downwards. While the Justy's eye-shaped larger headlamps are capable of amply illuminating the road at night, they are now angled upwards and come with a manual levelling switch.
All Justy models are equipped, as standard, with colored electric door mirrors and colored outer handles. Customers could specify their Justy in any of the five available colors: Black mica metallic, Maroon mica, Mint blue metallic opal, Red and Silver metallic. Accentuating the exterior of the Justy are aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in 175/65R14 tires (standard for the 1.0S model) or 155/80R13 tires (standard for the 1.0E model).
Subaru has given the Justy with a well-designed interior. It features a rounded dashboard that extends to the door trim, which provides the interior with a spacious feeling. The dashboard's functional lower part offers additional utility spaces. Subaru took out both the speedometer and the tachometer (which have a double-meter design) from the dashboard and mounted them on the steering column, thereby allowing the driver to read them easily regardless of what the seat height is.
On the other hand, the information display located in the center of the meter now includes only an odometer and the trip meters. It also shows the current and the average fuel consumption. Subaru equipped the Justy with a three-spoke, urethane steering wheel with a tilt function.
Featured as standard are elements like a vanity mirror with a lid for driver and passenger, a map lamp and a luggage lamp. The Justy 1.0S model also features a chrome accented gearshift knob as standard. Available as an option is a 1-DIN audio unit – featuring single-CD player, AM/FM radio -- with two speakers for the 1.0E model and with four speakers for the 1.0S model.
Drivers of the Justy 1.0S could use the seat height adjuster for the front seat to achieve the optimum driving position. On the rear, the seatback can be reclined by up to five degrees for more comfort. Moreover, the rear seat can also be folded down with a 60/40 split. For added utility, the sliding seat cushion can flatten the rear seat space to have more luggage room and to ensure is there is no gap where cargo might slip through.
Rear passengers could now open the rear doors by nearly 80 degrees, which means easier ingress and egress. Additionally, the Justy's rear gate now features a wide opening – measuring 191 cm from the bottom edge of the rear gate to the ground – for easier loading and unloading.
Astonishingly, the Justy comes with a number of storage spaces located conveniently throughout the car like a front door pocket, a pocket on the passenger seat, and a drink holder. Moreover, the Justy features a glove box with vertical partitions, a storage compartment in the front armrest, and a separately lit multi-purpose storage tray. The front and rear seat are provided with two cup holders each.
