40 years of Subaru AWD
Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) today announced that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the vehicles wheel drive (AWD) Subaru symmetrical since the launch of the van Subaru Leone 4WD Estate in Japan in 1972. During these last 40 years, Subaru continues to be a pioneer for vehicles of tourism integral traction. In fact, total output * 1 AWD Subaru vehicles has reached 11,782,812 of units (31 January 2012). This figure represents approximately 55.7% of total sales of Subaru vehicles.
* 1 including the production of a 4-wheel drive vehicles
The AWD system (AWD) Subaru provides an efficient motor skills thanks to a balanced distribution of engine torque to all four wheels. By combining the AWD system has taken permanent Subaru and Subaru Boxer engine has horizontally opposed cylinders, the drivetrain is mounted in parallel symmetry and transmission installs easily from the front axle and the inside of the wheelbase. This arrangement optimizes the longitudinal-transverse balance weight, which allows stable traction on surfaces for roads and under conditions of different and varied driving. Add to this an excellent stability at high speed and superb responsiveness in cornering, and the AWD system has taken permanent Subaru core technology has become the defining philosophy Subaru based on safety and driving pleasure.
Through 40 years of diligent research and development, Subaru improves its technology integral traction, from a basic technology for good traction on rough roads until the cutting-edge technology available today that has achieved great stability high speed or in rainy or snowy conditions, and enables the AWD system to be a couple gearbox answering better to the characteristics of each model. This most recent technology includes management of integral traction allowing continuous, firm and precise at all four wheels simultaneously adherence. This expertise in the integral control is also used for the development of a front-wheel drive vehicles and drive back, extending the pleasure of driving a Subaru expensive to reach more customers.
This basic philosophy - peace of mind and driving pleasure - is a key element of the overall utterance of the Subaru brand, trust and Evolution and Subaru achieve these goals by continuing to use these unique technologies.

Central locking differential has viscocouplage of integral traction: an integral mechanical traction for manual transmission.
This arrangement maintains a distribution front-rear 50/50 torque at all times to provide a better response under all conditions. This transmission and AWD system are customized for those who want maximum control and simultaneously sporting satisfaction.
Legacy (models has WB), Outback (BM models a) Forester (models has WB), WRX, Impreza (a BM models)
Multidisc clutch transfer electronic regulation AWD: AWD electronically controlled for energy savings and IMPROVED stability.
The multidisc clutch transfer original electronic regulation Subaru rule the distribution of torque to the front and rear wheels in real time according to driving conditions. The multidisc clutch transfer integral traction maintains a distribution front-rear 60/40 torque for a more predictable handling and automatically adjusts the distribution was 50/50 in a strong acceleration or when conditions road warrant.
Legacy 2.5i (CVT models) Outback 2.5i (CVT models), Forester (models with 4EAT), Impreza (models with CVT)
Variable Torque Distribution AWD: sports integrale electronically controlled traction for improved performance in cornering.
A compact integral drive system which combines the central differential using a planetary gear differential with a locking clutch hydraulic multi regulates electronically. An uneven distribution front / rear 45/55 torque varies continuously with the aid of a self-locking differential clutch multi. The distribution of the torque is automatically controlled up an equal 50/50 adapted to the conditions of road surface for greater stability distribution. Grace has a distribution of torque emphasis on the rear wheels, the cornering performance is accentuated to provide an aggressive and sporty driving.

Central differential has multiple modes control by the driver of the integral traction: an integral traction directed towards performance for maximum versatility.
Customize to support the powerful torque of the WRX STI, the central differential has multiple modes control by the driver (DCCD) enables to settle the electromechanical central differential to ensure precise maneuverability under all conditions. Auto mode is for any type of conduct; the distribution front / rear torque automatically between 41/59 and 50/50 depending on conditions. Tightening the central differential, the Auto mode [+] improves traction and stability on slippery roads, for a distribution front / rear torque 50/50. Auto mode [-] is a distribution front / rear torque 41/59 for capacities improved in cornering. Finally, the Manual mode gives the driver has 6 adjustable levels on which it can lock the central differential.
