Beauty Is More Than Skin Deep-Time to Peel Back the Sheet Metal & See What Makes Your Subaru Such a Wonder to Behold

The Subaru brand is world-renowned for its fortitude, capability, and outstanding engineering, but do you ever wonder what's going on beneath the sheet metal when it comes to how your Subaru Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, Legacy, or WRX utilizes its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD)? Or how about what makes the SUBARU BOXER® engines so special?

Here at Harvey Subaru, we love Subaru, and we want to share that passion with folks from our hometown of Bossier City as well as our neighbors in Shreveport, Alexandria, Monroe, LA and Longview and Texarkana, TX. As the saying goes, knowledge is power, so take a moment to explore the systems that make the Subaru lineup such a great choice for Louisiana and Texas drivers.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

By delivering power and traction continuously to all four wheels, you'll experience superior traction and boosted confidence all the time. However, when the system detects any wheel slippage, it will reroute power to the tires with the most traction, pulling it from the one with the loss of traction. This allows you maximum control during not-so-savory road conditions like rain or snow. Check out the video to learn more!


You may have heard that SUBARU BOXER® engines are different than your average engines, but do you know why? SUBARU BOXER® engines offer superior longevity thanks to a horizontal design that produces less overall vibration, making them more durable. Want to see it in action? Dive deep with this handy video!

Subaru Protective Systems

Most people know Subaru for safety as well as fortitude on the road. Subaru Protective Systems are there to protect you and yours, ranging from a high-tinsel steel body frame designed to holds its shape during a collision to eight, sensor-linked airbags that provide protection for passengers and driver. There's also something different-safer-about the SUBARU BOXER® engine and drivetrain layout-go ahead and watch the video to see what it is!

Subaru Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
