Video overview: Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

In this video, you will learn more about the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, a standard feature in almost all our current new Subaru models, such as the Subaru Crosstrek. The Subaru Symmetrical AWD separates itself from other systems like it due to its more proactive efforts. As its name might suggest, when driving on clear roads, the Symmetrical AWD helps to maintain an even side-to-side center of gravity, allowing you to clear tight corners in towns like Fairmont or out on the highways outside Elkins, with ease. Its proactive traction control system senses when one wheel on a Subaru Impreza or Subaru Forester begins to slip and redirects torque to the other wheels with the best traction to keep you steady and on the road, even when the winter weather hits.

Video Overview: Subaru BOXER® Engine

The Subaru BOXER Engine®, a standard feature of all new and used Subaru models, works differently from a traditional inline-cylinder engine or a V-shaped formation. Its box formation uses horizontally-opposed pistons and cylinders cancel out each other's vibrations, thus, not only reducing excessive noise, but providing a smooth performance on the road from Bridgeport to Elkins, and an engine which wears down much slower than conventional models. The Subaru BOXER® Engine stands as one of the more tech-savvy engines on the market and contributes to the outstanding longevity of our new and used Subaru models in Bridgeport, WV.

Video Overview: Subaru Safety and Protection Systems

If you seek a safe and family-friendly Subaru Legacy or a Subaru SUV for sale near Grafton, you should enjoy the many standard safety and driver-assistive features which come standard on all the new Subaru models we currently offer. Accidents may happen for a variety of circumstances, but the protections offered by Subaru help to reduce the chances of collisions and mitigate the effects of one. This includes a protective interior reinforced with high-tensile steel as well as an engine configuration which gets pushed down in a front-end collision rather than through the front steering wheel and instrument panel.

Video Overview: Subaru Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

Many Subaru SUVs and sedans, including the Subaru Outback, feature Subaru Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT). Unlike traditional automatic transmission gearshifts, or even many competing CVTs, this transmission works to improve fuel economy in the long-term, during your daily drive to Buckhannon. The system uses multiple pulleys with a chain-link belt between them, and consistently adapts itself to provide the most seamless gear changes. The CVT system delivers power when you need it most for steep uphill drives, but also maintains fuel economy long-term in normal everyday driving.
