Subaru Performance FAQs

Your top Performance cars questions answered
  • One of the most important features of a Performance car is the engine and it's power to weight ratio. Because a Performance engine is all about rapid acceleration and responsive throttle performance, the power to weight ratio is a key factor. This is due to the fact that the heavier the vehicle the greater the power required to increase vehicle speed and acceleration. For Subaru's Performance range, our iconic Boxer engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system (with the exception of Subaru BRZ) are also key features. Other technologies such as SI-DRIVE, Auto Stop Start and our LineartronicTM CVT also enhance and optimise the Performance driving experience while providing greater fuel efficiencies. Find out more about what makes a good Performance engine.

  • Because you never know what’s around the corner, Subaru have made safety an integral part of every vehicle. By incorporating the very latest safety technology such as our iconic Boxer engine, Vehicle Dynamics Control, SRS airbags and a ring-shaped passenger safety cell, every vehicle in the Subaru range proudly carries the maximum five-star ANCAP1 crashworthiness rating for occupant safety. You'll also find predictive safety features like Subaru's Vision Assist and EyeSight® driver assist system available on selected model variants. Find out more about our safety features.
