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.
