Subaru Symmetrical AWD Details in Auburn, NY

Here at Fox Subaru in Auburn, New York, we're proud to offer a lineup of SUVs and sedans equipped with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. But what's so special about Subaru's signature AWD system? Here's a closer look at the technology that makes Subaru vehicles like the Impreza, Forester, and Outback so capable and reliable.

It provides the perfect blend of power and control

Unlike some AWD systems that only periodically activate, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is always hard at work. In normal conditions, it sends power evenly to all four wheels to improve your Subaru's acceleration, to keep its weight well-distributed, and to maintain excellent grip around curves in the road. 

In slippery or rough conditions, this system can send power to the wheels with the best traction, giving you more confidence on snowy Auburn roads or rugged trails around the Finger Lakes. It also works with technologies like Vehicle Dynamics Control and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution to make your travels even safer in New York.

It's reliable and long-lasting

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has a relatively simple layout. It's lined up with the vehicle drivetrain to help it distribute power to each wheel. This means it needs fewer components to operate reliably, making it easier to maintain over time and reducing the number of things that could go wrong. About 96 percent of Subaru vehicles sold in the past 10 years are still on the road right now, and long-lasting Symmetrical AWD is a big reason why.

It comes standard - even on sedans

No matter which Subaru vehicle you buy from Fox Subaru - like the Legacy sedan, WRX sports car, Crosstrek SUV, or three-row Ascent - it will come standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. That's an incredible value! There's even a special EV-optimized version of Symmetrical AWD for Subaru's new all-electric Solterra SUV. The only exception is the Subaru BRZ, which is equipped with RWD to provide more traditional sports-car performance. 

Experience the confidence and control that comes with driving a car with Symmetrical AWD. Stop in soon to test-drive your favorite Subaru here at Fox Subaru in Auburn.
