Subaru Symmetrical AWD

  • Subaru Symmetrical AWD provides full-time AWD - power to all wheels at all times.
  • Subaru has spent decades perfecting this system, and has developed the best AWD system on the market.
  • It's called 'symmetrical' because the entire drive system is mounted in a straight, symmetrical line, and the centered distribution of weight keeps the vehicle well balanced.
  • It provides enhanced stability and safety, and also has the ability to shift power between wheels in the event of loss of traction.

4WD and 4x4

  • Most 4WD systems aren't full time and are manually turned on, or activated by a button or dial.
  • 4WD is best used only in lower speed conditions, such as in snow or mud.
  • 4WD is geared more towards off-road type conditions, and is not intended for everyday driving.
