Moving safely, swiftly and comfortably - that is the essence of a car. For this purpose, Subaru has come to develop rational and functional design that constantly pursues the finest performance. Thanks to its Subaru Boxer Engine, Symmetrical AWD and the structure of the Body and Chassis.


More enjoyable experience on the road.

  • Balanced & Composed.
  • Ultra-low center of gravity packaging

The SUBARU BOXER engine, which powers every vehicle in the Subaru line, is renowned for its superior balance, smoothness and power delivery — and has been for 50 years now. This horizontally opposed design boasts a low centre of gravity that helps create more balanced handling, flatter cornering and greater stability on every type of road.

It’s also an inherently compact, smooth and responsive design that feeds power directly to the drivetrain with maximum efficiency. Subaru offers a wide range of these engines — 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder, naturally aspirated and turbocharged — to suit a wide range of drivers and driving styles. Powerful stuff, we’re sure you’ll agree.

The Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive

Taking you wherever you want to go.

  • Stability
  • Drivability
  • X-Mode
  • Hill Descent Control

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.

The SUBARU Global Platform is a next-generation platform that has been developed using all of the know-how and technological expertise that SUBARU has acquired over the years.

The Subaru Global Platform (SGP) is the underlying platform that will underpin next generation of Subaru vehicles. The SGP’s advancements throughout the chassis—higher rigidity, higher strength, lighter weight, better rolling resistance and responsive steering—particularly benefit these safety systems. It's the future of Subaru, and delivers even more enjoyment and peace of mind to all drivers and passengers.
