Symmetrical All Wheel Drive

 
Symmetrical AWD, Subaru's own four-wheel drive system. Its greatest feature is that the powertrain, the core of which is the horizontally opposed engine, is symmetrically laid out in a straight line. As the four wheels bear weight equally with this basic layout, the road-hugging property of the tires is excellent and outstanding driving performance is achieved. It maximizes the potential of four-wheel drive. In addition, with symmetrical AWD, the heavy transmission is located near the center of the vehicle. Furthermore, the engine is the light, compact, and low center-of-gravity horizontally opposed engine. Due to its superior weight balance, the moment of inertia is low when turning and braking so the driver can enjoy the superior handling. At the same time, as the vehicle is stable and comfortable, the driver can enjoy a pleasant drive.
