What Is Symmetrical All Wheel Drive?

Many all-wheel drive systems work by sending power to the wheels with the most traction to stabilize the vehicle after it has already slipped. But Subaru decided to do things a little differently. They took the all-wheel drive concept and improved it so that drivers like you from the Idaho Falls area can get around confidently and safely no matter what the conditions are like.

Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system has a balanced design which distributes power evenly to each wheel and continues to monitor the vehicle's traction, adjusting the power accordingly to prevent the vehicle from slipping in the first place..

Efficiency and Durability

The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system has an efficient design and a long lifespan. While many all-wheel drive systems require extra parts to get the power from the drivetrain to the wheels, Subaru's system aligns the engine with the drivetrain. This allows the power to get where it needs to go without any extra parts or wasted energy.



Stability and Control

Since Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is designed to be balanced, it allows your vehicle to remain stable and keep you in control. The vehicle's weight is evenly distributed, and the power is getting to all the wheels at the same time, so the vehicle will respond to your input the way you need it to.




Power and Traction

Each wheel receives power at the same time, which allows you to maintain a better grip on the road and to accelerate more quickly. If you happen to come upon some slippery conditions, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive will shift power to the wheels with the best traction to keep you from slipping.
