We didn’t invent symmetry.
We used it to reinvent
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is distinguished from other AWD systems with its flawless balance. Thoroughly tested with proven technology and elegant design, we build everything from the ground up with balance in mind for a stable ride. It’s not an option, it’s a core principle.
Symmetry distributes power to all four wheels at all time for maximum control.

What is control? It starts with a Symmetrical AWD system that’s always on. It commands every square centimeter on the road. Remarkable traction engages before you realize you need it. Regardless of weather and road conditions, we’re always behind you when you’re behind the wheel.
The placement of the engine is as important as its power. That’s why our Boxer engine has a low center of gravity and perfectly aligns in a straight line with the transmission and drive train. Our symmetrical design keeps efficiency humming as the engine provides power to all four wheels for maximum balance, and control.
