Subaru will debut an all-new crossover at next month's Frankfurt Auto Show. Dubbed the Subaru XV, the production-ready crossover closely resembles the XV Concept, which was revealed in a memorable shade of green at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year.

While Subaru only released a teaser shot of the upcoming crossover ahead of its Frankfurt debut, the XV likely shares its general dimensions with the XV Concept. That means it is almost certainly based on the upcoming 2012 Subaru Impreza, likely borrowing design cues from the newly redesigned small car. It's also expected to share the 2012 Impreza's 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, which was coupled with a continuously variable automatic transmission in the XV Concept.

"The Subaru XV defines a new generation of Subaru crossover vehicles," said the automaker in a statement. "The [Subaru XV] concept was favorably received globally thanks to its distinctive and trendy design which blend a crossover-like commanding silhouette and an urban friendly image into one harmonious and elegant package."

While it's not known if the XV is intended to replace the off-road-friendly Impreza Outback Sport - essentially an Impreza hatchback with increased ground clearance - it's likely that an Impreza-based crossover will have dimensions similar to Subaru's popular Forester crossover. We're not sure if that means the XV is a preview of the Forester's replacement, or if Subaru plans to sell both models side by side in showrooms.

Fortunately, Subaru will end the speculation soon. The automaker says the official unveiling of the production-ready XV takes place in Frankfurt on September 13. We'll be there to cover it live, reporting details on the XV and other Frankfurt releases as soon as they're announced.
