What is All-Wheel Drive?

Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive is one of the biggest draws to a Subaru, but not everybody knows what it means. Standard on every Subaru model (except for the BRZ), all-wheel drive helps the engine deliver its power to the road, and gives you more control.

On most vehicles, the engine delivers its power to the front axle. The front two wheels drive the car, and the rear wheels are pulled along. This is aptly named front-wheel drive. Subaru vehicles are different. On almost every Subaru, the engine delivers its power to both the front and rear axle. On a Subaru, every wheel drives the car; this is known as all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive helps give you more control out on the road. On a FWD vehicle, if one wheel loses traction (such as if it drives over a wet patch on the road), there is only one wheel to drive it. On an AWD vehicle, if one wheel loses traction, there are still three others. Subaru AWD monitors which wheels have the best grip at any given time, and sends the engines power to the wheels with the most traction.

When you want a vehicle that can handle itself in all driving conditions, you can't go wrong with a Subaru. Take a look at our new Subaru models to see which one is right for you. We know we have your dream car on our lot, and we'll help you find it.
