Subaru Control Technology

   Subaru Control Technology

Staying in control is the first step to staying safe. That's why we engineer each and every Subaru with technologies and designs to achieve a level of control that set us apart from other manufacturers. From an interior designed to help you keep your attention and mind on the road, to an all-wheel drive system with nearly 40 years of development invested, we want you to always feel in control, so you can have the confidence to better embrace all that life has to offer.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

   Traction means control. And being in control means you have the power to steer clear of a potentially hazardous situation. Because you never know when or where you are going to encounter those hazards, it's essential that you have maximum traction at all times and in all conditions. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually sends power to each of your wheels all the time, and reacts quickly to any slippage to ensure that no matter where you are, you can feel that you can rely on your vehicle.

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)

   This advanced safety technology helps you better avoid danger on the road, as well as drive more confidently on curvy roads and in new situations. VDC electronic stability control is an automatic system that can intervene to help you keep your vehicle on the path you intend. The system uses multiple sensors around your vehicle to monitor its trajectory, and your steering and braking input. If it detects your vehicle deviating from the path you're sending it on, it kicks in. It can then apply the brakes to individual wheels and redistribute engine power to help you correct your course.

Variable Torque Distribution (VTD)

   Subaru vehicles with the 5-speed automatic transmission feature the enhanced Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) all-wheel drive system. When you're driving under normal conditions, this advanced system distributes 45% of engine power to the front wheels, and 55% to the rear wheels. This rear-wheel bias gives you a sporty feel for engaging driving. Should you encounter slippage in either the front or rear wheels, VTD dynamically redistributes torque away from the slipping wheels and to the wheels that have traction, which helps your Subaru keep a solid grip of the road even in challenging road conditions.
