Safety with Subaru AWD

Safety with Subaru AWD

Shopping for a new car can be confusing with all the new available features, trims to choose from, and powertrain options. For those who live in the Portland, Oregon area, it’s important to remember that maintaining traction on your commute to work throughout the winter is a necessity. Front-wheel drive powertrains only deliver power to two wheels at a time, where all-wheel drive systems delivers power from the engine to all four tires simultaneously. If one or two tires slip, your all-wheel drive system will keep you going with the other two tires maintaining traction.

While many brands from Ford to Honda offer their vehicles standard in front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive available at a higher price tag, Subaru offers most of their major models standard in all-wheel drive, from their SUVs such as the Subaru Crosstrek, Ascent, Forester, and Outback, to their sedans such as the Legacy and Impreza. Keep your family safe with the benefits of all-wheel drive.
