Subaru Showcases the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Difference in the Subaru Faceoff

December 7, 2016

Last weekend was a great time for Subaru enthusiasts as the Japanese car brand treated clients to a three-day event showcasing its prowess when it comes to its vaunted Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) technology. Apart from this, Subaru also took the opportunity to show the public the remarkable difference four wheels make versus two.

Through a specially-designed off-road simulation course, Subaru offerings like the versatile Forester and chic XV showed onlookers and guests just how secure and capable SAWD is. The Subaru Faceoff exhibited how a Subaru vehicle can easily get out of sticky situations without any special gear—and simply using its four drive wheels.

While most folks may think that all-wheel drive is only for off-road trails, Subaru believes otherwise. It’s SAWD technology is useful in giving that extra ounce of security, especially during slippery conditions. And with sudden downpours being a perennial occurrence in our part of the world, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have that added margin of safety.

And even if conditions are dry, Subaru still believes that SAWD can help. Thanks to its engineering, the system provides outstanding handling, giving drivers a bit of fun behind the wheel—yet still keeping them safe, of course.

Get to experience the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive in offerings like the XV, Impreza, Levorg, Forester, Legacy, and Outback.
