More comfort, more confidence
Suspension really matters. Too hard and the ride is harsh. Too soft and it’s bouncy with poor handling. The rigid Subaru chassis, with rear Double Wishbone Suspension System and font struts, ensures the perfect ride on even the worst of roads. The system creates more contact between the tyres and the ground. Road bumps are absorbed better, regardless of where passengers sit, whilst vehicle handling remains crisp and tight.
STRONGER BODY. SOLID AND SAFER
SUBARU’s innovative new Global Manufacturing Platform is already benefiting 18MY Impreza and XV models. It produces a rigid, high-strength unibody body that’s 40% stronger. In the event of a collision, the frame absorbs and helps safely dissipate impact energy. A more rigid body, front suspension and rear subframe offer even better straight-line stability - with minimal body roll. The handling is more responsive, giving you excellent feedback and control and improving your ability to avoid hazards. Demonstrating industry-leading protection in crash tests, the design also provides a uniquely solid base for the suspension – and so a responsive, quiet, vehicle to drive.
EXTRA GROUND CLEARANCE
The Forester, Outback, and XV offer raised suspensions for added ground clearance. With up to 220mm available, it’s comforting to know the 4-wheel fully independent suspension is free to take you wherever you wish.
