OUR TECHNOLOGY

Safety through innovation.

The core technologies in every Subaru work together seamlessly to keep you safe on the road at all times. While others may sacrifice protections to cut an engineering corner, we never stop obsessing over the details to keep you safe without compromise.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

You have four wheels. Why use only two? Adapts power to all four wheels, all the time. Protects you with maximum road grip and perfect control on any surface without affecting performance.

Boxer Engine

An engine that provides better stability? Yes, please. A lower center of gravity means better stability, better handling and fewer vibrations. Less shake gives you more control to stay safe.

EyeSight

Want to see what you can’t see? Lane sway warning, pre-collision braking, and adaptive cruise control help you to respond faster and prevent accidents from happening.

Disclaimer: Subaru Global Platform is not yet available on all models. Images shown are for illustrative purposes only. Specifications may vary across markets.

Control

Bites into the road with all four wheels.

Simply put, four is better than two. Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually monitors all wheels and adapts to provide maximum road grip and outstanding control on every turn.

TRACTION & SAFETY

Go where your heart points you.

Fear nothing with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The system is tailored to fit the drivetrain of each model it's built on, so you can count on it to prevent slipping — even in the harshest conditions.

Watch Symmetrical AWD in Action
Symmetry

Strike a better balance.

Safety isn't a part-time job. Unlike typical AWD systems that run in 2WD mode, only activating when the traction of those two wheels are lost, our Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is always on. With the left and right sides of the drivetrain completely balanced and distributing power to the front and rear wheels, you get double the traction full-time.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is available on all vehicles except the BRZ

A technology to believe in.

1972

was the year that Subaru sold its first passenger car with AWD. The benefits it provided drove us to fully commit to the technology.

4>2

wheels — every time. Even in good weather and road conditions, it is best to have more control, not less.

Part of your safety team.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive works with an entire suite of Subaru active safety systems like Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Vehicle Dynamics Control to give you greater control and confidence in almost any weather condition.

SAWD TRACTION

Watch how Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive sends power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction while also actively adapting and distributing power to each wheel when necessary, for added control.

X-MODE IN ACTION

Watch how X-MODE helps you tackle slippery roads and the steepest hills with just the touch of a button.

HILL DESCENT CONTROL

Watch how Hill Descent Control helps maintain a controlled and constant speed even on slippery downhills, adding even more peace of mind to your drive.

Discover how the Boxer Engine helps maximize symmetry and balance.
Subaru Boxer Engine

Pistons move in an opposing manner, canceling out each other's vibrations.

Balance

A smooth
operator.

Compared to its inline and V engine counterparts, the Boxer Engine has balance mastered. The Boxer Engine's pistons move opposite of each other, reducing vibrations to give you a smoother ride.

Subaru Boxer Engine

Pistons move in an opposing manner, canceling out each other's vibrations.

Inline Engine

Requires extra weights in the engine to counteract the vibrations caused by asymmetrical movement.

V Engine

Higher center of gravity compared to the boxer layout due to the V-shape design.

Handling

Hugs every turn effortlessly.

The flat design of the Boxer Engine lowers the center of gravity to provide a fiercely responsive ride. With its excellent weight distribution and closer relationship to the road, you get tighter handling that listens to your every move—and answers on every turn.

See Balance in Action
Power Delivery

Optimises power delivery.

The Lineartronic CVT provides a smooth transfer of power, so you enjoy effortless acceleration. Combined with Subaru technologies like SI-Drive, the Boxer Engine provides a responsive and fuel-efficient drive at the touch of a button.

The innovation that drives us.

50+

years of Boxer Engine innovation and evolution included in every Subaru.

180°

angle causes the pistons to face away from each other, and balance out each other’s vibrations.

The power of efficiency.

By creating conditions that require less power, and then optimising the transfer of power, the Boxer Engine uses strength and smarts to really pack a punch.

A FORMIDABLE DUO

See how the Boxer Engine and SAWD work together to create perfect balance and a unique driving experience.

DRIVABILITY

The low centre of gravity and flat design give it better side-to-side stability than other engine types.

SMOOTHER ACCELERATION

The engine’s flat design is more rigid and self-balancing, generating fewer vibrations than other engine types.

Discover how the Subaru Global Platform adds to comfort, control, and performance.
Safety

Your safety is always top of mind.

The rigid framework of the Subaru Global Platform changes how our cars drive, handle, and feel. But the best part is that it keeps you and your passengers safer than ever. Our cutting-edge platform improves collision energy absorption up to 40%. That’s the impact of a strong foundation.

PERFORMANCE

Instant steering response.

Have it all. Better crash protection, upgraded comfort, and a tighter ride. By lowering the center of gravity by 5mm and cutting down the steering to response time, you'll get ultra-responsive handling with every steering movement you make.

PROTECTION

Equipped for Just in Case

Sometimes accidents happen, and when they do, you can count on the Subaru Global Platform to keep you better protected. It's constructed to be a shock absorbing cushion in the event of a collision.

improvement of overall rigidity compared to previous models—which reduces vibration dramatically.

50%

reduction in body roll compared to previous models—which greatly improves handling on every turn.

A sanctuary on wheels.

The Subaru Global Platform absorbs more shock and provides 50% fewer vibrations due to rear stabilisers that are directly mounted on chassis. This gives you a quieter, more stable ride whether you're on the road or off the beaten track.
