All-Wheel Drive

Given the roads Kiwi drivers have to contend with, our Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system is an indispensable feature for getting around in NZ. 

The way it works is simple - as soon as your Subaru senses a loss of traction in any of the four wheels, it instantly transfers that power to the other wheels that still have grip, giving them the extra oomph to get you out of trouble. It happens so seamlessly you probably won’t even notice it, you’ll just feel that famous Subaru handling.
