Taking you wherever you want to go.
Symmetrical AWD, comprising of a longitudinally mounted Horizontally-Opposed SUBARU BOXER engine which achieves the low center of gravity and a symmetrically designed AWD drivetrain, is the system that Subaru has focused on for the best stability, safety and on-road performance at all times on all roads and in poor conditions. And ...
The Symmetrical AWD
At Subaru, we believe that cars are more than just a means of getting to your destination. To us, cars bring dreams, freedom and fantastic moments to life. And with this comes an overriding responsibility: ensuring that the lives of not only the driver and passengers, but of everyone remain safe. That's why there can never be an end
Introducing the Symmetrical AWD Family.
Active torque split AWD
An AWD system developed exclusively for 4-speed automatic transmission, E-4AT (with manual mode) and Lineartronic models to maximise the reliable driving performance of AWD models under any driving conditions. The Lineartronic CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) uses a chain instead of a belt—allowing a greater span of overall ratios for...
Viscous Centre Differential AWD
An AWD system for manual transmissions with a simple layout consisting of a centre differential and viscous LSD. A 50:50 front and rear torque distribution is set under normal conditions. This maximises traction and provides driving backed with stability. When the front or rear wheels slip and traction is lost, or the wheel speed differs between the front...
The Driver’s Control Centre Differential (DCCD) allows the centre differential locking of the WRX STI to be dialed in and adjust its handling. It adjusts both an electromagnetic multi-plate transfer clutch and mechanical locking of a Limited Slip Differential (LSD) to distribute torque to the front and rear wheels. Auto Mode identifies the ideal power distribution for...
