What Makes Subaru Boxer Engines So Special?

As you might already know, every Subaru vehicle comes equipped with a Subaru Boxer engine, but what makes these Boxer engines so special? At Subaru Antelope Valley, we want you to know your Subaru vehicle inside and out, which is why we're going to break down how the Subaru Boxer engine is constructed and what makes it stand out among the competitors so you can take full advantage of the performance of your new Subaru Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, Ascent, Legacy, Impreza, WRX, or BRZ!

What's the Difference Between Traditional Engines and Subaru Boxer Engines?

Traditional engines use vertically opposed or a v-shaped piston design, while Boxer engines utilize a unique horizontally opposed piston displacement. The horizontally-opposed piston displacement allows for a balanced performance that delivers a smooth and shudder-free feel. The length of each piston firing is shorter than traditional vertical or v-shaped engines, producing greater fuel economy and better response time. Also, the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine is able to be placed lower in the vehicle which results in a lower center of gravity and optimal balance around corners and on straightaways alike.

Every new Subaru vehicle comes equipped with a variant of the Boxer engine, allowing every vehicle to achieve terrific fuel economy, balance and overall performance wherever your adventures take you. Combine the Boxer engine with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every model but the BRZ and you have a winning combination that can't be matched.
