One of our four core technologies, the Boxer Engine lies at the heart of every Subaru to bring you unrivaled balance, handling, and stability.
Compared to its inline and V engine counterparts, the Boxer Engine has balance mastered. The Boxer Engine’s pistons move opposing each other, reducing vibrations to give you a smoother ride.
The flat design of the Boxer Engine lowers the center of gravity down to provide a fiercely responsive ride. With its excellent weight distribution and closer relationship to the tarmac, you get tighter handling that listens to your every move and answers on every turn.
The Lineartronic CVT creates a smoother flow of power, so it responds efficiently when you step on the accelerator. When accompanied with other Subaru technologies such as the SI Drive, we can provide a responsive or fuel efficient drive with one touch of a button.
With just the touch of a button, the anti-lock brakes, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Vehicle Dynamics Control system, and all other critical components optimize to help you tackle slippery roads and even the steepest hills.
Pair the Boxer Engine with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and you get symmetry and balance at its finest. It’s this combination that brings you the unmatched center of gravity and unique Subaru driving experience people have come to love.
