SUBARU BOXER Engine

There’s nothing like the thrill of driving a Subaru. It’s the heart of the vehicle – the SUBARU BOXER engine – that powers this spirited and confident driving experience. With outstanding driving stability and balance, you’re more in touch with the road, through every twist and turn. There’s less vibration, so you get a smooth, quiet and comfortable drive. Need to power up quickly? The engine responds immediately, just as smooth.

Subaru cars are synonymous with the unique SUBARU BOXER engine design. The pistons face each other in a straight line and fire with a punch-counterpunch motion. Vibration is naturally balanced out, and the engine rotates more freely. The flatter engine profile can sit lower in the chassis, which lowers the car’s centre of gravity. Plus it’s more rigid, thus more durable and reliable. So it has many inherent advantages compared to other engine types. What you’ll really like about it? Wherever you take your Subaru, it is pure joy to drive.
