Power on an even plane.
The pistons move horizontally in 180-degree opposition to each
other, so each naturally cancels out the vibrations of the other.
The end result is smooth and controlled power.
Built to last.
The engine’s flat design is inherently rigid and
experiences less vibration than traditional “V” or inline
engines. In other words, it’s extremely well built and
uniquely durable, so you can get more out of it.
Most engines are taller and
harder to balance.

The SUBARU BOXER® engine
has a lower profile and is centered
for greater stability.
The engine’s lower profile and symmetrical design deliver a more
grounded, balanced drive. It feels responsive, tight in the turns and
stable in maneuvers, allowing you to drive with more confidence.
