Subaru's Symmetrical All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Boxer Engine

Last updated 6 years ago

Symmetrical all-wheel drive is an innovation from Subaru that was born out of the technology of rally-car racing. In this short film from Subaru, you can see the benefits of the boxer engine and symmetrical AWD system.

The boxer engine that sits inside today’s Subarus is a specialized horizontal design that allows for the counterbalancing of pistons. When a combustion sequence occurs, a corresponding piston across the engine block experiences the same sequence and thus counterbalances the vibrations made by its sister cylinder. Symmetrical all-wheel drive ensures that the power generated by the engine is continuously routed straight to the wheels.

Falcone Automotive has a variety of four-wheel drive Subarus available for sale and lease, so call us at (317) 263-0002 to schedule a test-drive.
