[SUBARU] FB engine -The 3rd Generation SUBARU BOXER
The horizontally-opposed configuration of the SUBARU BOXER engine places the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than other engine types. This gives the engine, and the overall vehicle, a lower centre of gravity and better balance. Further, the pistons' opposing movements counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration. This year, a new generation of engines delivers enhanced output, efficiency and emissions whilst sharing all the legendary benefits of the 11 million SUBARU BOXER engines already produced.(see more detail at http://www.fhi.co.jp/english/news/press/2010/10_09_23e.html )
Subaru Symmetrical AWD - Efficiency & Durability
Efficiency and Durability
Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has the engine mounted in-line with the drivetrain, helping provide a seamless transfer of power to all four wheels.
Other AWD systems need additional drivetrain components to route the same power to the wheels, often using complex designs. More components tend to reduce vehicle efficiency and could add to higher maintenance costs.
Subaru AWD vs. Everyone Else
This video was a recap for Subaru Sales Associates and affiliates that participated in a driving event pitting Subaru against its core competition. These tests were repeated thousands of times, with the the Sales Associates experiencing each event for themselves. This was NOT meant for public consumption and is therefore not a propaganda video. This video was a review for those people who experienced this driving event themselves. All vehicles were stock, had stability and traction control enabled if equipped, and were operated using the manufacturer's recommended tire pressures. While this video depicts individual instances,these tests were performed thousands of timeswith thousands of participants over a period of two months. The intended audience of this video experienced first hand the documented results.
