What Makes Subaru So Fuel-Efficient?

SUBARU BOXER® Engines

The horizontal layout of the SUBARU BOXER® engine combines balance with power and efficiency, empowering models with quick handling response and flat, confident cornering. But it’s the horizontal layout that improves fuel efficiency — transverse or perpendicular engines require additional drivetrain components, reducing vehicle efficiency.

Lineartronic® CVT

Lineartronic® CVT

The main difference between a conventional automatic transmission and a Continuously Variable Transmission is that the latter doesn't rely on fixed gear ratios to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. Because of this design, CVTs enhance fuel economy by seamlessly shifting between gears.

Auto Start-Stop System

Designed to automatically stop your Subaru model’s engine when stationary and start again with the press of the gas pedal, the Auto Start-Stop System in some new Subaru SUVs reduces fuel consumption, exhaust emissions and idling noise.

The Subaru Hybrid and Electric Lineup

The Subaru Hybrid and Electric Lineup

The Subaru brand carries even more efficient models in a different body style — the sedan — and has even added a hybrid model to its lineup. Many of our customers are curious to learn more about the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, which offers an EPA-estimated 90 MPGe on full electric power and 35 mpg combined.2 There's also the all-new all-electric 2023 Subaru Solterra, the first zero-emissions all-electric SUV, available by reservation only.3 With a respectable all-electric range and short charging times, the Subaru Solterra is the first of many expected EVs to come.

If you’re interested in becoming the proud owner of a new fuel-efficient Subaru, give us a call, or stop by our dealership at 6141 Johnston Street, Lafayette, LA 70503 for a test drive today. We look forward to serving our customers from New Iberia, Abbeville, Youngsville and Broussard.
