SUBARU BOXER ENGINE

Posted on: 25 Dec 2020

Few other SUVs drive with the level of confidence and responsiveness of the Forester, and the main reason for this lies beneath the surface—the SUBARU BOXER engine. Its horizontally opposed configuration places the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than other engine types. This gives the engine, and therefore the overall vehicle, a lower center of gravity and a better sense of balance. Further, the pistons’ opposing movements inherently counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration.
