Hybrid System
Subaru’s hybrid system – called StarDrive – uses two electric motors in addition to the internal combustion engine. One motor drives the wheels during hybrid or EV driving modes and charges the batteries with regenerative braking. The other acts as an engine starter and electricity generator. These operate with Subaru’s stalwart 2.0-liter BOXER 4-cylinder engine for a total output of 148 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a continuously variable transmission.
