Subaru Cars

Subaru is the automobile manufacturing division of Japanese transportation conglomerate Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), the twenty-second biggest automaker by production worldwide in 2012.

Subaru cars are known for the use of a boxer engine layout in most vehicles above 1500 cc. Most Subaru models have used the Symmetrical All Wheel Drive drive-train layout since 1972. The flat/boxer engine and all-wheel-drive became standard equipment for mid-size and smaller cars in most international markets by 1996.

In South Africa, the Subaru brand has traditionally been popular among a dedicated core of buyers. Marketing is targeted towards a specific niche centered around those who desire the company’s signature drive-train, AWD capabilities and Rally motorsport affiliations. Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster M45, or ‘The Seven Sisters’, one of whom tradition says is invisible, hence there are only six stars in the Subaru logo.
