Powered by the famed Subaru Boxer® engine, Subaru utility vehicles are also surprisingly affordable, refreshingly fuel-efficient, and incredibly reliable and durable. In addition, this line of Japanese-engineered crossovers (CUVs), wagons and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) boasts exceptional safety ratings. There are many benefits of owning a Subaru SUV in Guelph.

Subaru Intelligent Drive

Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) is an advanced engine management system with driver-selectable modes tailored to suit different conditions and different moods. SI-DRIVE is the perfect solution for those who crave both sporty response and economic fuel consumption, taking vehicle performance to an all-new level. Subaru Intelligent Drive is common throughout our Subaru SUV lineup, and one fo the major benefits of driving a Subaru SUV. 

Sport (S) Mode 

Sport Mode is the best setting for all-around driving because it keeps the engine and transmission in their most efficient settings in normal circumstances, yet is able to provide crisp engine response when needed. In this mode, the throttle opens more quickly compared to Intelligent Mode, resulting in more direct response to driver input. The system also enables smooth shifts, even acceleration at any speed, solid passing power and a confident driving experience overall. As such, it’s ideal for highways, suburban streets, and mountain roads.

Intelligent (I) Mode 

In Intelligent Mode, SI-DRIVE directs the throttle to open more gradually to maximize fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and deliver greater smoothness. The engine mapping also optimizes throttle and torque characteristics to maintain the most efficient settings, boosting fuel economy by as much as 10% overall. For vehicles equipped with the Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), this mode automatically triggers the most fuel-efficient ratio. All of these characteristics make this the perfect choice for urban settings and stop-and-go driving. Intelligent Mode is also well suited to tricky driving conditions, such as wintry roads or those covered in loose gravel.

Sport Sharp Mode 

Sport Sharp Mode extracts maximum potential from the Subaru Boxer engine and the transmission and provides the most immediate response to driver inputs. In this mode, throttle response is even more direct, precise rev control is maintained across the entire rev range and lower gears are held longer on models equipped with the CVT. The paddle shifters on CVT models also enable the driver to take even more control over performance with up to eight predetermined ratios that perform like an 8-speed transmission. Sport Sharp mode is ideal for tackling twisty roads and for confident highway merging and overtaking.
