Subaru offers standard all-wheel drive across its product line.
The 1980s witnessed Subaru transitioning to all-wheel drive on some models and building on engineering it introduced in the early 1970s. Beginning in 1997, the brand switched exclusively to all-wheel drive, with the lone exception being its Subaru BRZ sports car, a rear-wheel drive model introduced in 2013.
In 1990, the Subaru Legacy was introduced and initially sold in both sedan and wagon body styles. The current Subaru Legacy is offered as a midsize sedan only.
Three other Subaru models were introduced in the 1990s and remain in production to this day. The Impreza is a compact model that later yielded the performance-oriented Impreza WRX and the WRX STI, introduced in 1992. Two crossover SUVs followed, the midsize Outback and the smaller Subaru Forester.
In 2005, Subaru introduced its first model with room for seven, the B9 Tribeca SUV. That model was later renamed the Subaru Tribeca before it was discontinued in 2014.
The Subaru BRZ broke the exclusive all-wheel drive line when this rear-wheel drive sports car was introduced in 2013.
In 2013, the Subaru line was expanded further with the introduction of the compact XV Crosstrek SUV. Subaru officially separated its Impreza and WRX lines for 2015, with the latter including the high-performance STI edition.
