Subaru Safety is Standard - Not an Option!

Safety drives Subaru design.

Subaru is the only manufacturer with IIHS Top Safety Picks for all models, two years in a row. We don't shy away from crash tests, because safety is at the forefront of our design.

All-Wheel Drive. Control the road.

You need balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction, instead of the slip-then-grip alternative. Every Subaru comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability, efficiency and a quicker response to slippery conditions.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard on All Subaru Models.

Protective Systems

A ring-shaped reinforcement frame helps provide high-impact protection for the passenger compartment. An advanced airbag system deploys up to six airbags, with Forester, Outback and Tribeca models also including a rollover sensor. And the engine's low placement is designed to allow it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision, further protecting the passenger area.


Control and Braking

Along with the traction that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path. The VDC system also includes an all-wheel all-speed traction control system.

In stopping situations, the Anti-Lock Braking system (ABS) pulses braking power to help prevent wheel lockup. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) optimizes the distribution of braking force between the front and rear wheels according to how the vehicle is loaded with passengers and cargo. And the Brake Assist system helps ensure maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.


Low Profile

With pistons moving horizontally, the SUBARU BOXER ® engine has a flat, low profile, almost perfectly symmetrical, for a well-balanced vehicle. Its low profile can provide a lower center of gravity than other designs, helping provide quick handling response and flat, confident cornering.

Power and Traction

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive sends power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction and acceleration.

In slippery conditions, that power instinctively flows to the wheels with the best traction.


Efficiency and Durability

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has the engine mounted in-line with the drive-train, helping provide a seamless transfer of power to all four wheels.

Other AWD systems need additional drive-train components to route the same power to the wheels, often using complex designs. More components tend to reduce vehicle efficiency and could add to higher maintenance costs.


Disconnecting Boxer Engine

In the event of a head-on-collision or accident, the placement of your vehicles engine can play a significant role in protecting or injuring the occupants. The Subaru Boxer engine  sits low on the chassis and dismounts in the event of an accident, sliding underneath the vehicle and away from injuring the passengers. The unique engine design has the pistons that move on horizontally opposing ends, rather than vertically like most other engine designs. This design gives the safety advantage of sitting lower to the ground, which prevents cabin penetration in the event of an accident.


Visibility and Child Safety

Every Subaru is designed for optimal visibility, from generously sized windows to an available rear-vision camera on certain models, helping to improve rear visibility. Every vehicle also comes standard with the LATCH child safety rear seat system and rear child door locks. All sedan models are equipped with a self-illuminated inside-the-trunk release handle to help avoid entrapment.
