Subaru is the perfect 'rescue car' for ice and snow

Permanent Symmetrical All Wheel drive system for Subaru's

Subaru’s full model range, the Subaru Legacy, Subaru Outback, Subaru Forester and Subaru Impreza are all equipped with the company’s permanent Symmetrical All Wheel drive system. Subaru owners are certain to be called upon to rescue friends and fellow motorists stranded in the ice and snow. The permanent Symmetrical All Wheel drive system directs power to all four wheels, optimising traction in the very harshest winter conditions.

Subaru UK Marketing Director, Kenyon Neads, said “our customers have less to fear than most from the snow and ice that winter brings, thanks to the capabilities of Subaru’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system.  I helped rescue a neighbour in a German rear-wheel-drive vehicle from his own driveway last year, and we know many of our customers will find themselves in similar situations as soon as the snow falls.  We want to help our customers respond to appeals for rescue in the safest way possible.” 

Many Subaru’s also feature Vehicle Dynamic Control, which manages torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel, making adjustments instantaneously when grip levels are reduced in order to keep the vehicle on the chosen course.
