SI-DRIVE performance
management system
Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) enables three distinctively different modes of vehicle
performance characteristics by regulating the engine control unit (ECU) and by fine-tuning
the electronically controlled throttle. For WRX models equipped with Sport Lineartronic
Transmission, SI-DRIVE also adjusts transmission shift characteristics.

Vehicle Dynamics Control
Standard VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors which constantly monitor wheel
speeds, steering angle, brake pressure, vehicle yaw rate and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects
a difference between the driver’s intended path and the one the vehicle is actually taking,
VDC applies braking power and/or reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path.
Includes performance-oriented Traction mode.
Active Torque Vectoring Active Torque Vectoring works in tandem with VDC applying braking power to the inside
front wheel resulting in sharper turn-in, more neutral steering and higher cornering limits
when turning.
Traction Control System
VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system which senses a loss
of traction and applies braking force to the slipping wheel or wheels as necessary to
maintain vehicle motion.

See the Subaru Warranty and Maintenance booklet for further details. 4 Compatible smartphone and applications required. For applications to operate, latest version of each application is required. Data provided by smartphone is displayed on the audio system screen. Some state laws prohibit the operation of handheld electronic devices while operating a vehicle. Smartphone apps should only be launched when vehicle is safely parked. Your wireless carrier’s rates may apply. 5 Activation and monthly subscription sold separately. Includes 4-month trial subscription. See your retailer. 6 Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are systems designed to assist the driver by monitoring the rear and side areas of the vehicle during a lane change or reversing and are not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. 7 Available only with other features. See Optional Equipment listing. 8 Not available with Sport Lineartronic Transmission. 9 EyeSight is a driver assist technology which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. Pre-Collision Braking System is designed to provide automatic braking that either prevents a collision or reduces the severity of a frontal impacts. Pre-Collision Throttle Management is designed to reduce acceleration and minimize the severity of certain frontal impacts. Adaptive Cruise Control and Brake Light Recognition are designed to assist the driver and are not substitutes for safe and attentive driving. Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist operate only when lane markings are visible and system effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations. Please remember to turn off EyeSight when going through a carwash." 10 The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) (airbags) affords the driver and the front passenger additional protection in moderate to severe frontal and side-impact collisions and outboard 2nd-row passengers additional protection in moderate to severe side-impact collisions. This system provides supplemental protection only, and seatbelts must be worn in order to avoid injuries to out-of-position occupants upon airbag deployment and to provide the best combined protection in a serious accident. Children should always be properly restrained in one of the rear seats. See Owner’s Manual for recommended seating position.
