Research the Subaru Boxer Engine at Hanson Subaru in Olympia, WA

What is the SUBARU BOXER® Engine?

Every new Subaru model in our huge inventory at Hanson Subaru is equipped with a renowned SUBARU BOXER® engine. This engine is unlike anything else you'll find on the road because, instead of the traditional inline engines that sit vertically or V-shaped engines that also stand vertically, the BOXER® engine is flat with horizontally-opposed cylinders. This means that the pistons are driven in opposite directions of each other, which provides a host of advantages. This engine design is at the heart of every Subaru vehicle, and you'll have your choice of BOXER® engines designed for efficiency, performance, and your next adventure.

What are Some Advantages to the SUBARU BOXER® Engine?

Since the pistons in SUBARU BOXER® engines are horizontally opposed, they naturally cancel out noise and vibrations, which requires additional parts and weights in traditional engine designs. While this allows a smoother and quieter operation for the BOXER® engine, it also means that this engine is flat for a lower center of gravity. With more of the weight concentrated closer to the ground, Subaru models are better able to carry speed through turns. Where traditional engine designs significantly contribute to things like body roll, the flat SUBARU BOXER® engine means that you'll enjoy a new level of driving confidence, handling, and responsiveness. This also makes for a safer vehicle that's ideal for families!

Why Should You Choose a Subaru for Your Next Vehicle in the Pacific Northwest?
