SUBARU BOXER Engine
A boxer engine, or a horizontally opposed engine, is an engine configuration in which its pistons move toward each other in a horizontal direction. Subaru has been solely committed to the SUBARU BOXER
engine for over 50 years for its many advantages over other engine types, providing durability and reliable performance in its vehicles.
The low centre of gravity and flat design give it better side-to-side stability than other engine types.
The engine’s flat design is inherently rigid and self-balancing, generating less vibration than other engine types.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD distributes power to all wheels for better traction on wet and slippery roads. Laid out in a horizontally
symmetrical plane, this system has a well-balanced low centre of gravity design for a more stable and safer ride.
Lineartronic + Active Torque Split AWD
Lineartronic adjusts to any ratio in its range for smooth and stepless gear changes that keep the engine in its most efficient range for efficient and smooth acceleration, driving performance and better fuel efficiency.
It comes paired with Subaru’s active torque split AWD system. Its default torque of 60% front and 40% rear is adjusted up to a 50/50 split in response to real-time traction conditions.
Subaru Global Platform
The Subaru Global Platform (SGP) is the underlying platform that will underpin the next generation of Subaru vehicles. Enhancing all-around safety and performance, it goes beyond better performance to offer
a driving feel you can only find in a Subaru. It’s the future of Subaru—and delivers even more enjoyment and peace of mind to all drivers and passengers.
1. More Fun to Drive
More responsive handling allows the driver to steer the car as intended, also increasing hazard avoidance. The result is a car that’s safer and more fun to drive, even on long trips. Even with its versatile high ground clearance, the all-new SUBARU XV overcomes turns like a passenger car.
2. Ride Comfort
Improvements in chassis rigidity, suspension, and stabilisers efficiently absorb shocks from the road and hide uneven surfaces, allowing more comfort and less fatigue on long rides.
3. Comfortable Cabin Space
Unpleasant vibrations or noise have been minimised to ensure all passengers enjoy the ride. Suspension improvements and a highly rigid chassis allow for a comfortable cabin interior for all.
X-MODE helps to give you reliable control with a push of a button. The technology of X-MODE takes command of the engine, transmission, Symmetrical AWD, brakes, and other components to safely navigate
through challenging road conditions and varying terrain. When X-MODE is activated, Hill Descent Control automatically helps to maintain a constant speed when the SUBARU XV is travelling downhill.
