old, old news (from late 2012), but this is the best I could find regarding it. Also, I feel stupid for not looking further into it when it was released... also, this just inspired me to add more stuff to my silly list.

SUBARU XV SPORT CONCEPT (display model)
Under its concept "Super off-road SUV", large tyres, increased ground clearance and Subaru AWD system have been employed. They achieved comfortable ride on any road surface. Subaru XV's unique driving pleasure has been further refined.

<Major equipment of SUBARU XV SPORT CONCEPT>
Front Bumper (Prototype) Bilstein Suspension (Prototype)
LED Driving Lights (Prototype) STI Flexible Tower Bar (Prototype)
Side Under Spoiler (Prototype) STI Sport Muffler (Prototype)
Fender Arch Protector (Prototype) Enkei Designed 17-inch Aluminum Wheels
(Prototype)
Recaro Front Seat (Prototype) Brembo Brake & Drilled Rotor (Prototype)
Notice the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S tires combined with the Enkei RPF1 wheels painted to suit the Subaru XV.

It's just a one-off concept to showcase what Subaru and STI are working on for future accessories and performance parts.

If the parts do get the green light for production, I'll be jump-for-joy excited! Though I'm curious how difficult it was to swap in the WRX STI's Brembo brakes...

Aside from the wheels, I like it.
Put the standard XV wheels on it & I think it'd be great.

Liking the painted roof rack & dual exhaust as well.
