Kearny Mesa Subaru Horizontally Opposed Boxer Engine Design Details

Subaru Boxer Engine and Specifications

The Subaru Boxer Engine is standard on every Subaru vehicle. With its horizontal design, the Subaru Boxer Engine creates a smooth and quiet ride by canceling out vibrations caused by piston movement and engine fire. This eliminates the need for vibration absorbing components, which can have costly maintenance associated with them. The 2.5-liter or 2.0-liter Flat-4 Boxer Engine is the most common Boxer Engine found in Subaru Models, combining smooth operation, efficiency, and power. Other Subaru models, such as some Tribeca, Forester, Outback, and Legacy models feature a 3.6-liter Flat-6 Boxer Engine with 256 horsepower, are available at Kearny Mesa Subaru.

Low Profile Horizontally Opposed Engine Position

The Subaru Boxer Engine is unique in the fact that it creates a lower center of gravity compared to other engine types, such as the V-type or Inline engines.  With its lower center of gravity you'll experience quicker handling and increased responsiveness. The Subaru Boxer Engine is almost perfectly symmetrical with its horizontal design, creating a well-balanced vehicle that offers you the power and control you crave.
