Engineered to Outperform
Over the past 60 years, Subaru has forged a reputation for designing, engineering and building vehicles that inspire an unmatched level of driving confidence.
In that time, we have experienced significant breakthroughs, including the legendary SUBARU BOXER engine. The equally famous Subaru symmetrical full-time AWD system. The recently introduced RWD system on the exhilarating BRZ sports coupe. The robust DC3 (Dynamic Chassis Control) system. And a rally-honed, fully independent suspension system.
These advances work in conjunction to deliver a completely unique driving experience that encompasses superior response, nimble handling and complete peace of mind — plus a whole lot of fun behind the wheel.
The low centre of gravity improves stability in the corners, contributing to a more comfortable ride, crisper handling and great accident avoidance capabilities.
This engine type is compact, lightweight and symmetrically positioned low in the chassis to create smoother and more direct power delivery.
Better Performance Efficiency
The pistons move side-to-side, an inherently better-balanced design, so they create less vibration, generate better performance, and ensure reduced wear and tear on moving parts.
The horizontally opposed engine is relatively compact and has a low profile compared to similar displacement engines, so it’s able to slide underneath the cabin in a severe frontal collision.
