Keeping inventory low, the automaker will protect the value of your vehicle at trade-in.
All-Wheel-Drive is Standard, not an Additional Option, on Subaru
On niche all-wheel-drive models, Subaru builds fun that will get you away from the crowd.
This car builds the all-wheel-drive model. The only automaker that offers standard all-wheel-drive on every one of its models is Subaru. In fact, other automakers have front-drive models and charge more for the AWD option.
This Vehicle Offers Fuel-Efficient Engines
The automaker will stay with the four-cylinder Boxer engine. It will upgrade all its engines with direct-injection. Therefore, more new-generation models will get a turbocharged option like Ascent, Outback, and Legacy models. They all have a FA24 2.4-liter turbocharged powerplant. Subaru says to look out for new smaller turbocharged engines. They will be more fuel-efficient.
Subaru is Reported to Stay Conservative
SUVs will keep what is called their excellent outward visibility. Therefore, the car will stay conservative in terms of its styling. Also, Subaru won’t bring on any new models. In one of the hottest segments, customers won’t see a new mid-size pickup. In addition, the carmaker won’t offer a convertible trim to the BRZ sports coupe. The company will focus its endeavors and make improvements to its main models in 2021.
Subaru Stays in Their Lane Doing What They do Best
According to the Japanese automaker, safety will be a top priority. Upgrade on all its models will include the next-generation EyeSight X. In fact, all models will have the highest scores from the IIHS. This is something all Subaru customers can count on. However, the vehicle will remain with a manual transmission in Crosstrek, Impreza, and WRX. In fact, trims won’t have standard EyeSight until the 2024-2025 production year.
Reliability is a Factor and Constant
CEO Tomomi Nakamura said in a recent interview with Automotive News (by subscription), the Japanese automaker is working to fix past quality problems. In addition, to improve upcoming quality in the new 2021 Forester, Outback, and Ascent models.
The Automaker is not Afraid to go Against What is Tried and True
Journalists reportedly criticized the second-generation BRZ for not having a turbocharged engine. Not afraid to go against conventional wisdom, the automaker brought in the new sports car with a naturally-aspirated engine.
