Subaru is well known around the world for its tradition in building one of the most perfect all wheel drive system. Called Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, the 4x4 system now reaches an important milestone. Subaru announced that production of vehicles equipped AWD system has reached 15 million units.

The milestone has been achieved almost 44 years after Subaru introduced the Subaru Leone 4WD Estate Van in September 1972, the first model to feature a drivetrain technology that is now synonymous with the Subaru brand and its products.

In 2015, AWD-equipped models accounted for 98% of Subaru’s global sales. Powered by horizontally-opposed ‘Boxer’ engines, all of these AWD models featured the latest version of Subaru’s distinctive Symmetrical AWD system.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive offers a combination of superior stability and traction intrinsic to AWD, and the combination of the symmetrical drivetrain with a longitudinally-mounted Boxer engine helps to balance weight distribution in every car equipped with the technology.
