Retracing the Lineage and Development of the Highly-Acclaimed Subaru Boxer Engine

Last updated 5 years ago

Subaru is famous for the Boxer engine, a horizontal engine that counteracts the movement of the cylinders to reduce engine vibration and noise. Watch this video clip to learn about the history of the Subaru Boxer engine and why it is one of the most advanced engines in the world.

For more than 40 years, Subaru has stood by the design of the Boxer engine because of its low vibrations and low center of gravity. While the Boxer engine was first being developed, Subaru decided to produce it using lightweight aluminum to reduce weight. Over the years, Subaru continually reduced both the size and weight of the Boxer engine, while providing greater power and fuel economy. Click play to learn more!
