why Subaru

Symmetrical All Wheel Drive technology

It's the difference between owning a normal 4x4 and a proper 4x4

Rally past, 4x4 future

Don’t get us wrong, we’re flattered that most people know us for producing championship-winning rally cars. But, there’s something else we’re immensely proud of too. We call it Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive technology.

This technology helped us become successful at winning rally championships. But not everyone knows that this same tried and tested tech is inside all our 4x4s, as standard.

But don’t all 4x4s do the same thing?

Unfortunately, they don’t. That’s why we only make proper 4x4s. Our Symmetrical AWD technology is different because the power is continually and actively distributed to the individual wheel or wheels with the best traction. Meaning that unlike other 4x4s, you’ll have superior grip, control and power in the most adverse driving conditions imaginable. Mud, wet fields, sand, rocks, snow – you name it.

What’s more, Symmetrical AWD technology comes as standard throughout the range† with the Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC starting from just £18,940.* So whichever Subaru you choose, you can be confident that you’ll be able to take on anything.
