Compared to its inline and V engine counterparts, the Boxer Engine has balance mastered. The Boxer Engine's pistons move opposing each other, reducing vibrations to give you a smoother ride.
Pistons fire side to side, canceling out each other's vibrations.
Requires extra weights in the engine to counteract the vibrations caused by asymmetrical movement.
Higher center of gravity compared to the boxer layout due to the V-shape design.
The Lineartronic CVT creates a smoother flow of power, so it responds efficiently when you step on the accelerator. When accompanied with other Subaru technologies such as the SI Drive, we can provide a responsive or fuel efficient drive with one touch of a button.
