If you buy the wrong car, you could be putting your family's life in danger. You have a responsibility to find the safest, most reliable option, right?

When faced with an emergency on the road, do you want to rely on an abundance of cupholders? No. You'll wish you chose the advanced technology found in Subaru features.

Subaru is known for its durability and safety, but that doesn't mean there aren't brand new features that make life a little more enjoyable.

What makes a Subaru?

At the heart of every Subaru lies a few core qualities that form our foundation. These central Subaru features are tried and true. They're what gave us the good name in the first place.

1. The Boxer Engine

Subaru's unique Boxer Engines have pistons that fire horizontally (like a boxer's punch). This engine design offers the excitement of acceleration, the comfort of a smooth ride, and the design made to last for a long, long time.

On top of that, Subaru's are Certified Low Emission Vehicles.

2. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Essentially, this feature allows power to be distributed evenly to all wheels.

What does that mean?

It means that your traction and power are in total control.

Say you're turning around a long bend. As you take the corner, the distribution of power is automatically adjusted among the wheels to ensure that you have the best possible grip on the road.

Our All-Wheel drive is complemented nicely by the advanced suspension system. These Subaru features further solidify traction by ensuring that all four wheels stay on the road.

Subaru also features brake, stability, and tire-pressure monitoring systems that make your ride as safe as possible.

4. Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)

All models made after 2010 are equipped with VDC, which protects you from sliding on the roads.

At any speed or turning-angle, VDC will apply a singular break, or adjust engine power, counteracting the threat if your Subaru ever begins to slip on the road. This feature can be turned on or off at will.

5. Interior Safety Features

Subaru's are created with ring-shaped reinforcement designs. Essentially, this feature keeps the passenger safe by holding its form in the event of a crash. The energy of impact is absorbed by the front and rear crumple zones, leaving the frame of the vehicle intact.

Our Boxer Engines are created to dislodge in the event of an accident. Because of their design, our engines sit lower under the hood of the car. In the event of a head-on crash, the engine dislodges and is forced underneath the car.

This is better than the alternative, normally placed engines, which move directly back toward the passenger in the event of a crash.

Additionally, advanced airbag technology allows a Subaru to deploy airbags only when needed. Weight sensors on the seats determine whether a small child is sitting in the seat, in which case no airbag will be deployed.

Subaru also has a couple of new features that you'll be excited about.


Subaru's new Starlink feature is packed with benefits.

Safety Features

1. Automatic Collision Notification

Any time an airbag deploys, a Starlink advisor will contact you through the speakers in your Subaru. If necessary, this person will notify the appropriate authorities to keep you safe.

2. Emergency Assistance

Even if no airbag deploys, you constantly have the option of contacting a Starlink Customer Care Advisor. This means you are never more than the push of a button away from safety.

3. Stolen Vehicle Recovery

Starlink has what it takes to work with the authorities to find and retrieve your stolen vehicle. Make sure to contact both the police, and Starlink. They'll work together to bring your Subaru home safe.

4. Diagnostic Alerts

Ever get that pesky "Check Engine" light on your dashboard? If you're like most people, you have no idea what it's referring to until you bring it into the mechanic.

Subaru sends you an email whenever your car is experiencing these "Check Engine" troubles. Not only that, we explain the issue to you.

5. Monthly Vehicle Health Report

This feature allows you to see your car's exact diagnostics every month. You'll be able to view the data in a clear, easy to read report that keeps you up to date with what's going on under the hood.

Then we can finally know what to talk about when we bring it in, right?

6. Remote Services

With our remote services, you'll be able to lock, unlock, honk, flash the lights, and locate your car with the push of a button.

Multimedia Features

1. Connectivity

You won't need to buy extra subscriptions to your favorite apps in order to use them through your Subaru. Simply connect your iPhone or Android to the Starlink system and you'll be able to stream.

2. Advanced Navigation

Our new, tablet-like dashboard navigation system will allow you to find your way through the world with ease. Swipe to find locations, or use voice commands if your hands are busy.

The great part is, switching between your apps and navigation is as simple as saying the word.

3. Voice Commands

You can use your voice to control nearly any aspect of the Starlink system. Phone calls, music choices, navigation, and climate control are all hands-free.

Pretty nice, huh?
