Subaru Symmetrical All Wheel Drive Design Features

The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on every Subaru vehicle except the BRZ Sports Coupe and provides excellent balance & control under extreme driving conditions. Subaru takes pride in providing the model line-up with a finely tuned symmetrical all-wheel drive that constantly adjusts torque distribution to the wheels to help make driving easier, safer, and more enjoyable. Due to the low center of gravity and symmetrical design of the Subaru Boxer Engine, the AWD system can make full use of almost total side-to-side symmetry and provide excellent balance while driving through extreme conditions.

All-Wheel Drive Stability, Control & Durability

The Subaru AWD System achieved such great balance due to an in-line engine and drivetrain design that enables an even distribution of power to all four wheels to provide maximum traction and acceleration. At the very core of the Subaru AWD design is the the Limited Slip Differential (LSD). The LSD is designed to control torque distribution and limits tire slippage pro-actively rather than reactively depending on the different surfaces you may drive on during your travels.
