What Makes Subaru Distinct From Other Cars


Choosing a car that addresses your needs can really be stressful. And why not? It is such a pain to determine which is which especially with options that could run out of fingers if you dare count.

Understanding this dilemma of yours, here is a quick and easy peek of why Subaru is preferred by car enthusiasts and even starters.

One of the greatest features Subaru has prided itself is its Subaru Boxer® engine. Drawn form a century of intelligent performance, its horizontal layout allows the engine to be positioned in-line with the drive train for maximum transfer of power. Many other engines are transverse, or turned perpendicular, and can require additional drive train components to transfer power, reducing vehicle efficiency. The outcome? A flat, smooth and smart ride.

Subaru to Expand Indiana Facility, Produce Imprezas


Subaru is bringing production of its popular Impreza model to the US by pumping $400 million into its plant in Lafayette, IN. The company will begin producing the Impreza in 2016 by way of this plant.

This expansion involves an increase in the physical space of the plant, the installation of new equipment, and the hiring of new employees. The automobile production facility, which is known as Subaru Indiana Automotive (SIA), currently produces the Subaru Tribeca, Outback, and Legacy models. Its output is around 200,000 of these vehicles per year. The expansion effort involves both the building of a new paint plant, and the modification of the vehicle assembly line to produce more vehicles. This expansion, which will increase the plant’s total square footage by about over 500,000 square feet, will result in the plant’s being able to produce about 100,000 more vehicles per year.
