The Advantages of All-Wheel Drive

Last updated 5 years ago

There are a number of benefits that come with the increased traction and response of a new Subaru equipped with all-wheel drive. To find out how a Subaru with all-wheel drive makes your car more stable and responsive in any weather condition, continue reading.

Power Efficiency

Subaru’s all-wheel drive system is simply more efficient at transferring power to the right wheels than part-time four-wheel drive systems. Unlike a part-time four-wheel drive system, which requires additional components to switch between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, an all-wheel drive system splits the power between both front and rear wheels at all times. This keeps the weight of an all-wheel drive system lower, which leads to better fuel efficiency and improved handling.

Dependability in Any Weather

If you want to be able to have confidence behind the wheel of your car in any weather, a Subaru is an ideal car to be in. The system automatically detects whether there is slippage occurring at a certain wheel. If slippage occurs, the Subaru all-wheel drive system will transfer the power to the wheels that do have traction. Whether you’re driving in a straight line or taking a curve in slippery road conditions, the Subaru all-wheel drive system keeps the right wheels turning and gripping the road.

Superior Traction

Even when the weather is good and the road is dry, the Subaru all-wheel drive system is working to improve your Subaru’s cornering abilities. During cornering, most cars experience either oversteer, where the car turns to much around a corner, or understeer, where the car doesn’t turn enough. To combat these forces, Subaru’s all-wheel drive system engages all four wheels during cornering. This balancing act ensures precise steering at all times.
