Subaru Impreza (Performances)
Subaru Boxer MOTOR
Few vehicles can boast of mastering the Outback. The exclusive engine configuration, which is based on cylinders 180 degrees on each side of the crankshaft, gives it a lower height than other types of engines. The engine and the vehicle as a whole benefit from a lower center of gravity and therefore a better balance. In addition, the pistons mounted in opposition naturally neutralize the effect of their displacement, which makes it possible to reduce the vibrations.
The engine block has a flatter profile and a lower positioning in the chassis, the vehicle has greater stability and greater resistance to lateral oscillations.
Due to its flat design, the engine offers rigidity and balance, and generates less vibration than V-engines or 4-cylinder in-line engines of the same class, for greater durability and more reliable performance.
Symmetrical AWD Transmission
Mastery is a guarantee of confidence, stability is a guarantee of agility: two maxims that apply perfectly to the Outback. Subaru vehicles are especially engineered to inspire confidence, thanks to the stability of the Symmetrical AWD transmission combined with the perfect balance of the SUBARU BOXER engine. This architecture makes it possible to efficiently and permanently transmit the power to the four wheels for an increased control on any type of road and in difficult conditions.
It ensures excellent balance and directional accuracy unparalleled through the longitudinal alignment of its main components while the low center of gravity promotes a particularly rewarding and responsive ride. The unique advantages of the Symmetrical AWD transmission guarantee outstanding handling and help you cope with potential hazards.
Engineered to get the most out of the SUBARU BOXER engine and the Symmetrical AWD system, the Lineartronic variable-speed transmission allows the engine to operate in the optimum range, delivering an exemplary fuel economy of 6.1 l / 100 km (Lineartronic diesel).
Selection controls ensure responsive, responsive driving on 2.0D and 2.5i engines, while on the 2.0D engine, the Lineartronic transmission is also capable of handling the large torque reserve with reduced mechanical noise for a driving experience. quieter and gentler driving.
The selection controls have a variable control that adapts to the speed of the vehicle and the engine speed, allowing the driver to "feel" the points of passage to the acceleration and thus benefit from a perfect osmosis with his vehicle.
The paddle shifters are mounted on the steering wheel for easy control, and allow you to select the reduction ratio of the Lineartronic transmission best suited to the situation. On the petrol models, the paddle shifters make it possible to choose between six reports against seven on the diesel models, thus guaranteeing an immediate reactivity. In the end, you get a sharper, more sporty driving experience.
