Japanese car-maker Subaru has been selling cars in Australia since 1973. It is a bold manufacturer, installing its symmetrical all-wheel drive (AWD) drive-train, known for its exceptional road-holding ability, into many of its models from the 1970s. By the mid-1990s, its smaller and mid-sized cars had AWD as standard.
That is, until the BRZ was released in 2012. That car was via a partnership with Toyota (86 model) which paired a Boxer engine with a rear-wheel drive drive-chain. A new BRZ is expected shortly. Subaru’s Boxer engines are high-performing and horizontally-opposed that are said to be lower and safer than traditional engines.
The company has recently released an ‘e’ version (hybrid) of the Boxer engine.
Newer model Subarus boast award-winning safety technology EyeSight (driver assist) and a system that alerts drivers when they show signs of fatigue.
