Subaru Symmetrical AWD

If you want to be a leader, you need to get in the game early. You don't become a leader by finishing second. And you don't become better by being the same. We have been fine-tuning our symmetrical AWD technology for over 40 years. This wealth of experience has led to a vehicle line up with the widest range of AWD systems offered by any one manufacturer. We take AWD seriously because we know that - if the goal is making cars safer, more capable and more fun-to-drive, in all possible driving conditions, with higher levels of confidence - 4 is better than 2.

Capturing the most traction possible is key to optimizing vehicle performance, handling and proactive safety in a variety of conditions. Here are some reasons why 4 is better than 2 in this respect - and why Subaru symmetrical full-time AWD is a better 4.
