It's our automaker's proprietary AWD system, standard on all new Subaru cars and SUVs here in Danbury except its sports coupe, Subaru BRZ, which offers rear-wheel drive. Sure, most other brands and models out there today may offer their own all-wheel drivetrain options, too, but ours is unique from the rest. Get to know what sets it apart here at Colonial Subaru.

For one, Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive is permanent versus mode-activated, always on, and proactive with traction versus "slip-then-grip," the character of other electronic AWD systems. Together with the legendary SUBARU BOXER engine, mounted "flat" with the drivetrain versus in-line, the system delivers power evenly to all wheels at once, prioritizing those with turning and pulling power. The result: balance, wheel slip reduction, faster handling response, both oversteer and understeer compensation, and thus, a dependable grip, both on the road and off the trail -- over harsh landscapes, through rain, over shallow water, and across snowdrifts.

The best thing about it, though, perhaps: its design. Subaru all-wheel drive is simpler than that of other automakers, with fewer moving parts. That means less -- and often less expensive -- maintenance.

Bring available active Subaru safety systems like EyeSight® into the mix, with its speed adaptation, lane management, and collision avoidance abilities. Consider the other Subaru hardware to help protect you and yours out there, such as electronic brake-force distribution and vehicle dynamics control. It's plain to see: whether you're headed across tough terrain out of Waterbury in an all-new Subaru Crosstrek, the latest Forester, or an Outback wagon, hitting the road through bad weather in the latest Legacy or Impreza sedan or hatchback, or pleasure-cruising in a new WRX sports car, you can count on a Subaru vehicle to provide peace of mind where other manufacturers can't.

Eager to get a firsthand feel for how AWD handles? You're welcome to visit us here at Colonial Subaru, 89 Newtown Road in Danbury, for a test drive, where you'll find an extensive selection of new Subaru models to choose from. We'll be happy to give you the balanced perspective!
