SUBARU BOXER® Engine.

Flat. Smooth. Smart.

SUBARU BOXER® ENGINE DESIGN

Horizontal Design

The SUBARU BOXER® engine is positioned in-line with the drivetrain for a maximum transfer of power. Many other engines are transverse, or turned perpendicular, and can require additional drivetrain components to transfer power, reducing vehicle efficiency.

Low Profile

With pistons moving horizontally, the SUBARU BOXER® engine has a flat, low profile and is almost perfectly symmetrical, for a well-balanced vehicle. Its low profile provides a lower center of gravity than other designs, helping provide quick handling response and flat, confident cornering.
