Why Buy A Subaru?

Why Choose Subaru Over the Competition?


There are a lot of options when shopping for a new car. It is important to consider what details and features each vehicle has to offer before you make a decision. Subaru has always taken great pride in producing reliable, practical, and long-lasting vehicles. There are plenty of aspects that make Subaru a Subaru and separate them from the competition: standard safety features, standard all-wheel drive, and the reliable Subaru Boxer engines are only some of the many reasons why Subarus sell in such great numbers and retain their resale value so well.

Legendary Safety

Subaru's 2019 product line offers more of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Picks than any other brand. This year, Subaru has seven vehicles that qualify as IIHS Top Safety Picks. The 2019 Ascent, Outback, Crosstrek, Impreza (sedan and 5-door), WRX, and Legacy earned the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS when equipped with LED Steering Responsive Headlights and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. Subaru's dedication to safety is found in features and technologies such as:

  • Electronic brake-force distribution (EBD): This brake system, along with the standard anti-lock braking system (ABS), uses pulse braking to prevent locking. EBD "intelligently" and automatically applies the amount of force to each vehicle's wheels based on load, speed, and road conditions. Subaru's Brake Assist framework applies maximum braking pressure as quickly as possible.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC): VDC is an all-in-one traction control and electronic stability that controls the engine and Symmetrical AWD to prevent skidding and keep the vehicle on its path.
  • Subaru Eyesight: The system works like an extra pair of eyes on the road and continually scans the road to warn the driver of obstacles; it can even apply the brakes when a collision appears unavoidable. When they are equipped with EyeSight, the Forester, Legacy, Impreza, Crosstrek, WRX, and Outback all earned Top Safety Pick honors.
  • Subaru STARLINK Safety and Security: Safety services include Automatic Collision Notification, roadside assistance, SOS Emergency Assistance, and more.

Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive

All-wheel-drive is offered as an option on many vehicles across the automotive industry, but it's a standard feature on all Subarus but the performance-oriented BRZ. Unlike most industry standard AWD functions, Subaru's symmetrical AWD is superior because it isn't adapted from a two-wheel drive system. The advantages of this uniquely designed system include prevention of torque steer during heavy acceleration, linear power application to all wheels, and maximized traction to reduce sliding during poor road conditions.

Subaru Boxer Engine

The Boxer engine is designed to deliver a balance of power and efficiency by utilizing a flat engine positioned in line with the drivetrain. The horizontal position of the pistons creates a more comfortable and smoother driving experience. Another advantage to the Boxer engine is less wear and tear during startup. Inline and V-type engines start dry, increasing friction. However, the horizontal position of the pistons keeps them below the oil line, ensuring constant lubrication.

The Subaru Ownership Experience

Subaru has always provided quality, safety, and capability, and that commitment is as strong as ever. Subarus rank highly among the most reliable and capable vehicles on the road, with a long reputation to back that up. With numerous accolades across their model line, such as the Kelley Blue Book 2019 Best Resale Value Award, this manufacturer separates itself from the competition. It's no wonder this is one of the most popular nameplates in New England and other regions that see a lot of challenging winter weather.
