Subaru AWD system 


Almost all Subaru vehicles come with their standard AWD system to improve the control of the vehicle on the road as well as the tractions. The Subaru Wrx and Subaru Sti are also equipped with the AWD system which functions by equally distributing the power made by the engine to the from and the rear wheels of the vehicle maximizing the performance. The Wrx, as well as the Sti trip, uses the DCCD system which distributes the power from front wheels or the rear wheels while also using sensors to calculate the slippage of the throttle positions and steering angle determining which wheels need more power to optimize traction.
