Looking after what matters. That’s what our slogan is, and that’s what Subaru stands for. While you enjoy every adventure that life has to offer, the engineers making your vehicles are hard at work ensuring that you have a car to fully enjoy.
What puts Subaru above the rest? These amazing features.
Subaru’s Boxer Engine
The Subaru Boxer Engine is the heart of all Subaru vehicles. The intelligently designed engine provides the power to Subaru’s AWD system and gives every Subaru vehicle the power, balance, and efficiency you’ve come to expect.
The engine is a flat laying engine, which offers a unique design to provide the driver with less vibration that competitors. The lack of vibration is achieved through horizontally opposed pistons which cancel the opposite piston’s vibrations out. The Boxer engines also last longer than other engines due to the engine oil level in the flat lay engine. The engine oil level offers lubrication for the pistons, which creates less wear than other traditional engines.
Subar’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) offers a unique concept on the traditional all-wheel drive seen in competitors. Most AWD systems are adapted from 2-wheel drive, which is not the case with Subaru’s symmetrical AWD. The system under the hood of your favourite subie started out as all-wheel drive, never adapted from 2-wheel drive.
The power for the AWD coming from the Boxer Engine, which gives power directly to each wheel continuously. This continuous power prevents slippage in any road condition, offering you and your family protection all year long when you need it most.
Advanced Safety Engineering
The Symmetrical AWD isn’t the only safety precaution that Subaru takes to ensure you and your family are looked after on the road. The brand is a regular name on the list of IIHS Top Safety Picks from 2010-2017 due to Subaru’s number of safety features and active and passive safety systems that are engineered with one goal in mind: to protect you on the road.
Subaru’s active safety features include Four Channel/four sensor anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Brake Assist, Driver Visibility, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Boxer Engine Placement, Fully Independent Suspension, and Vehicle Dynamics Control Systems.
The passive safety features that offer you protection include Ring-shaped reinforcement body frame design, front and rear crumple zones, occupant restraint systems (seat belts and advanced airbags), safety pedal system, sub-frame and engine placement, collapsible steering column, and lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH).
