Along with the traction that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path. The VDC system also includes an all-wheel all-speed traction control system.
In stopping situations, the Anti-Lock Braking system (ABS) pulses braking power to help prevent wheel lockup. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) optimizes the distribution of braking force between the front and rear wheels according to how the vehicle is loaded with passengers and cargo. And the Brake Assist system helps ensure maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.
VDC, ABS, EBD and Brake Assist standard on:

Here's the scenario: You've got an all-wheel drive vehicle so you think you can handle slippery road conditions. But suddenly, something is in your path. How does your vehicle react? In a certified independent test of five vehicles within the same class, we looked at vehicle stability, traction, and control to see how different all-wheel drive vehicles react in a double lane change maneuver. Cones are set to indicate traveling lanes and the road hazard. Here's what each vehicle has to do: Get into the turn, make an evasive lane change to avoid the hazard, then correct itself without incident. First up, the Honda CR-V. This is a clear case of under-steering where the vehicle's momentum pushes it out from the directed line even when the driver is pointing the tires in. Next, the Toyota RAV4. Under-steering again. Now, the driver tries to counter that outward push to keep the vehicle in line but you can see the back end whipping around and the results of that. Let's see how the Nissan Rogue does. All of these vehicles are traveling at the same average speed. While this vehicle hasn't driven off its line as much as previous vehicles, it's enough to affect the driver's ability to avoid trouble when returning to the lane. Next vehicle, the Ford Escape. This is the worst case of under-steering yet, but also notice the nose dipping from braking - that's not the driver. That's the system taking control away from the driver in the interest of maintaining stability, but it doesn't seem to be helping. And finally, the Subaru Forester. It holds its line through the course. Wherever the driver points the wheels, the vehicle maintains traction and goes in that direction, avoiding the hazard and quickly returning to its lane without incident. By looking at vehicle stability, traction, and control, things that can contribute to your safety on the road, we can see a clear difference in these all-wheel drive vehicles and a clear winner in Subaru.

http://www.anderson-subaru.com / Anderson Subaru Forester vs Sandy Sansing Nissan Rouge / Roller Test / Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive / You need balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction, instead of the slip-then-grip alternative. Every Subaru comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability, efficiency and a quicker response to slippery conditions.
Subaru AWD Uphill Comparison Test
This is an AWD Uphill Comparison Test showing the effectiveness of a Subaru over vehicles with AWD systems from brands such as Honda, Ford, Toyota, Chevrolet and Nissan. Never let your friends tell you their AWD vehicle is just as good as your Subaru after you watch this. At Don "K" Subaru, we like to provide all the facts. Call us today at 406-862-2571

In response to video comments: This is not a rigged setup. There are no chains holding back the competitors cars. This was also shown live to an audience for training purposes. Sorry to bust everyones doubts.
Subaru Forester vs Honda CRV, Pt 02
On a #ShootingKenya trip to the Central Kenya Highlands, we encountered mud puddles as we attempted to get to Lake Ol Bolossat. The Subaru Forester's all-wheel-drive system proved superior to Honda CRV's 4WD system, pulling it not once, but twice out of small muddy ruts.

Honda CR-V Real Time All Wheel Drive
Trying to climb a ramp.
1. First I started on the flat ground but I had no problems to climb
2. So I tried again to loose the traction but I couldn't... The CR-V climbs too easily, I quit
3. I decided to stop in the middle hoping it will break the traction, and yes AWD kicked in, ESP is on (around 62nd second)
4. Then around 01:35 I switched ESP off and repeated the exercise
Be it tires or AWD - I learned my lesson - if you want to reach the top do not stop on an icy hill no matter what :)
1st attempt at 01:00 - ESP On
Then ESP Off
