The SUBARU BOXER engine, which powers every vehicle in the Subaru line, is renowned for its superior balance, smoothness and power delivery - and has been for close to 50 years now. This horizontally opposed design boasts a low centre of gravity that helps create more balanced handling, flatter cornering and greater stability on every type of road. It's also an inherently compact, smooth and responsive design that feeds power directly to the drivetrain with maximum efficiency. Subaru offers a wide range of these engines - 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder, naturally aspirated and turbocharged - to suit a wide range of drivers and driving styles. Powerful stuff, we're sure you'll agree.
Advantages of the SUBARU BOXER
The low centre of gravity improves stability in the corners, contributing to a more comfortable ride, more responsive handling and greater accident avoidance capabilities.
This engine type is compact, lightweight and symmetrically positioned low in the chassis to create smoother and more direct power delivery.
Better Performance Efficiency
The pistons move side-to-side, an inherently better-balanced design, so they create less vibration, generate better performance, and ensure reduced wear and tear on moving parts.
