Things That Make Subaru Such a Great Brand  
 

Subaru takes pride in delivering innovative and reliable technologies to the highly dynamic American marketplace. Over the generations, this Japanese automaker has captivated a loyal customer base for plenty of excellent reasons.

Subaru Offers Unique Technologies For Drivers

When you browse the latest Subaru lineup, you will find a handful of unconventional technologies. Most trims are powered by the classic BOXER engine, which has several advantages in terms of performance and safety. First of all, the horizontally opposed design slightly lowers the overall center of gravity of the entire powertrain. Therefore, Subaru vehicles have a better overall balance than most rivals on the market. The BOXER engines also pack bigger mechanical punches than comparable I-4 engines. In fact, Subaru even offers turbocharged BOXER engines on select trims for even more power and torque. You'll also find the acclaimed Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive across the extensive Subaru lineup. Over the years, this patented AWD has been installed by default at the factory. You just won't find too many sedans and hatchbacks that come standard with an AWD. Therefore, the compact Impreza and midsize Legacy sedans have led their respective classes in handling for multiple generations. Likewise, Subaru adds the X-MODE technologies to crossover SUVs for more advanced handling. Select models have several driving modes that boost traction on snow and off-road trails. Most Subaru trims also boast the Lineartronic continuously variable transmission system, which provides industry-leading value in handling. Nevertheless, manual gearboxes might be available on some Subaru trims in North America. In general, the brand hasn't favored automatic gearboxes at all throughout the years.

When it comes to active safety, Subaru has also been a leader on many fronts. For example, the latest EyeSight Driver Assist technologies have given consumers tremendous confidence on rural and urban roads. The signature package has also helped some trims qualify for the Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ recognition from the IIHS. When it comes to digital technology, Subaru delivers plenty of great promises. The latest STARLINK Multimedia systems are packed with user-friendly features and applications, including smartphone connectivity and Wi-Fi. TomTom GPS navigation software is widely available on most trims for enhanced guidance. Additionally, Harman Kardon has formed a solid partnership with Subaru over the years. Therefore, select Subaru models offer high-end audio systems from one of the world's leading brands.
