Features like the control and handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an extensive protection system show that your safety is always at the forefront of Subaru design.
EYESIGHT® DRIVER ASSIST TECHNOLOGY
The available EyeSight driver assist technology monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. It can even help slow down the car when danger is lurking. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive flows power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction. And in slippery conditions, it instinctively sends power to the wheels with the best traction, helping you stay on the road and on course.

Variable Torque Distribution AWD
WRX models equipped with the Sport Lineartronic transmission feature Variable Torque Distribution All-Wheel Drive, using a computer-controlled planetary gearset center differential with a rear-biased torque split of 45% front and 55% rear. This advanced system provides outstanding driving dynamics that actively respond to changing road conditions and improves handling.
Available on: WRX Premium, WRX Limited
SMART BRAKING SYSTEMS
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) prevents wheel lock-up and helps maintain driver control. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) balances braking, while Brake Assist can sense a panic-stop situation and apply full braking force to help stop faster.
Standard on: All models
SUBARU BOXER® ENGINE
The horizontal layout of the SUBARU BOXER® engine allows for a low center of gravity for improved handling response. It also sits low in the frame, helping it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision to protect the passenger area.

ADVANCED PROTECTION SYSTEM
WRX and WRX STI feature a total of seven front, driver knee, front seat-side pelvis/torso, and side-curtain airbags. The advanced system uses an array of sensors to help deploy the airbags in the most effective way possible. The ring-shaped reinforcement frame is designed to shield and protect in a collision. Made of high-tensile strength steel, it directs impact energy around the passenger compartment, rather than through it.
Standard on: All models
Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Reverse Automatic Braking
Using radar sensors, the Blind Spot Detection system warns you if it senses a vehicle within your blind spot. Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know if there is traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, while Reverse Automatic Braking can automatically apply brakes to help prevent a backing collision.
