Protective Systems


A ring-shaped reinforcement frame helps provide high-impact protection for the passenger compartment. An advanced airbag system[8] deploys up to eight airbags, with Forester, Outback, and Crosstrek models also including a rollover sensor. And the engine's low placement is designed to allow it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision, further protecting the passenger area.


Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive


Dry, wet, snowy, or off the road, maintaining traction is of the utmost importance. The Subaru Symmetrical AWD system continuously sends power to all four wheels to maximize traction and reduce the chance of slippage in any road condition.


Control & Braking Systems


Along with the traction that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path. The VDC system also includes an all-wheel all-speed traction control system.
