Built for performance in racing championships from Formula 1 to the World Rally Championships, Subaru cars are built for high performance, durability, and optimal traction. Keep reading to see how Subaru’s history of success in racing contributes to the automaker’s current lineup.
Performance-Minded All-Wheel Drive
Many automotive manufacturers seem to think that all-wheel drive is all about keeping a car under control during foul weather. But this is a very limited way of designing cars. Instead, Subaru optimizes its world-renowned all-wheel drive system not only for solid handling in many weather conditions, but also—thanks to their rich racing legacy—for spirited performance. Take any Subaru around a corner and you’ll notice that the car stays stuck to the road regardless of pavement quality and weather conditions.
The ideal racecar, as Subaru found out, must be balanced evenly between the front and the rear. Optimal balance isn’t only about front-rear weight balance, though. It’s just as important for a racecar to have a low center of gravity. Fitted with a Boxer engine, Subaru cars are able to boast powertrains that do not require extra machinery to prop the engine up or to balance its movements. Instead, it sits flat and low under the hood. Applying these concepts to its entire 2012 lineup, Subaru’s objective is to make its automobiles feel confident and responsive when you drive them.
Subaru knows that a racecar’s engine shouldn’t weigh more than it needs to. That’s why many of Subaru’s Boxer engines found in Subaru’s 2012 lineup are small, between 2.0 and 3.6 liters. And because they are turbocharged, this promises maximum performance and fuel efficiency as well.
