Here at Conley Subaru we get asked a question quite a bit that we believe deserves attention: what's the difference between all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive? It's a good one, and while similar, there are key differences. It's important to know, especially since the Subaru vehicles here in our showroom all offer all-wheel drive standard for those in the Tampa and St. Petersburg areas. That's why we're taking the time to explain it to give you a better idea of what the differences are, and how your Subaru performs.

All-wheel drive is the more popular option as it is found on not only Subaru vehicles, but other brands. It provides power to the front and rear wheels at the same time. With four-wheel drive it's also sending power to all the wheels at once, but generally is on vehicles that intend to be off road quite often, and isn't as smooth as all-wheel drive.

Basically, both are powering all your wheels, but one is meant for more rugged circumstances, while the other is smoother and offers you better everyday driving. In the case of Subaru and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, you're getting an all-wheel drive system build in on every vehicle as one unit. This gives it the smoothness that those in Bradenton and Sarasota enjoy, while other all-wheel drive systems from competitors adds on the all-wheel drive unit as a separate part, which means it's not as smooth.
