The snow has started falling here in Niagara and with that snow comes road conditions that are less than ideal. But don’t you worry, you drive a Subaru! Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) makes driving in any weather on any road a walk in the park. How can you feel anything less than confidence when you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle with your safety in mind?
A FEATURE WITH HISTORY
Subaru began producing vehicles with its Symmetrical AWD in 1972, so we’ve been dedicated to maintaining a system to keep you safe for years. With age comes wisdom and over the years, we’ve seen technological advances that we’ve used to improve and perfect a system that keeps you safe in all conditions.
WHAT’S THE DEAL?
We know that all-wheel drive isn’t a new concept, and certainly not a feature that is exclusive to Subaru. But Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is. Our drive train is perfectly in balance — left and right are symmetrical. The balance in completely unique to Subaru and ensures stability and efficiency in power transmission which means a better grip and faster response time to slippage.
When you drive a Subaru vehicle with our exclusive Symmetrical AWD you’re going to seem some obvious benefits:
You’ve heard of Subaru’s Boxer Engine, so how does it affect your Symmetrical AWD? It sends power to all four wheels continuously, doubling the change of tires finding traction in any weather condition. The more power sent to the wheels, the more traction to reduce sliding.
When the power gets divided through all four wheels, you get better stability and control, no matter what the road conditions. With more stability, you’re less likely to spin sideways.
Our drive train is balanced on both sides, which makes for a constant and predictable driving experience every time you get behind the wheel. A balanced weight ratio increases your control which means you can take on a sharp curve with confidence.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE … REALLY?
So now you know the basics behind our Symmetrical AWD, but what does that mean in comparison to other AWD systems? Check it out:
So you’ve got the goods on what Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD is all about, but seeing is believing. Come into Subaru of Niagara and take a vehicle out for a spin to see what all the fuss is about!
