Traction in all conditions. There’s a reason Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is respected around the world. When road conditions are demanding, it delivers control and composure where other vehicles stumble by evenly distributing power to all four wheels. The benefits are immediately apparent – more controlled cornering, better traction in slippery conditions, and enhanced acceleration. The overall sensation is that driving becomes an easier, safer and more enjoyable affair.
Few cars deliver the thrilling eagerness and spontaneity of the Subaru XV. It’s achieved with the horizontally-opposed SUBARU BOXER engine, which places the pistons 180 degrees apart for a lower, flatter profile compared to other engine types. This gives the powerplant—and by extension the whole car—a lower centre of gravity and more balanced weight distribution. In addition, the pistons’ opposing movements counteract each other, which naturally reduces vibration.
DRIVE A SUBARU
Even in pouring rain, whether on the highway or on a winding local road, on gravel roads or mud tracks, in an Outback you feel safe. Whatever the road conditions, you feel a firm grip of the tires and effortless handling. You and your passengers feel kept secure. In extreme as well as every day situations, the symmetrical all wheel drive (Symmetrical AWD) in connection with additional Subaru technologies relates an exceedingly calming sensation.
THREE DISTINCT ADVANTAGES
Because the engine block has a flatter profile and sits lower in the chassis, the overall vehicle is more stably balanced and resistant to side-to-side motion than other designs.
With its 180° cylinder angle the SUBARU BOXER engine runs with extremely low vibration, because the opposed pistons of the two rows of cylinders perfectly equalize their inertia forces – which is not the case in any other row or V engine. The result is effortless response over the whole RPM range coupled with distinctive running smoothness.
More grip and traction
The superiority of all wheel drive compared to front and back wheel drive is obvious, above all in corners. You can feel the car developing grip and traction on all four wheels. There is no disruptive under or over steering, like the kind that can lead to instable conditions in cars with only two powered wheels.
