POWER AND TRACTION

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive sends power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction and acceleration.
In slippery conditions, that power is actively distributed to the wheels with the best traction.

EFFICIENCY AND DURABILITY

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has the engine mounted in-line with the drivetrain, helping provide a seamless transfer of power to all four wheels. Other AWD systems need additional drivetrain components to route the same power to the wheels, often using complex designs. More components tend to reduce vehicle efficiency and could add to higher maintenance costs.

STABILITY AND CONTROL

The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive helps enhance control and stability. With power being actively distributed to the wheels with the best traction, it helps to maintain a firm grip on the road, especially in low-traction conditions. Front-wheel drive vehicles generally understeer or push in a turn, while rear-wheel drive vehicles can often oversteer in a turn.

HOW IT WORKS TOGETHER

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, working with a suite of Subaru active safety systems like Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Vehicle Dynamics Control, helps to give you greater control and confidence on the road in almost any weather condition.
