What Subaru Models Offer Turbocharged Engines?

Every Subaru vehicle comes equipped with a variation of the legendary Subaru Boxer engine, providing you with an athletic, responsive and efficient driving experience everywhere your adventures take you. Subaru Boxer engines are known for their unique horizontally opposed designs that provide you with increased responsiveness, enhanced fuel economy and a lower center of gravity, and while every Subaru vehicle comes equipped with a Boxer engine, certain models take it another step by offering turbocharged Boxer engines. To help you make your decision about which Subaru vehicle is the right option for you easier, we're going to outline the different Subaru models with turbocharged engine options and highlight some of the advantages they can provide you with!

Subaru Models With Turbocharged Engine Options

  • Subaru Forester: The Subaru Forester offers two available engine options, including a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 170-horsepower, and the available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 250-horsepower.
  • Subaru Ascent: The Ascent is the newest addition to the Subaru lineup of vehicles and comes equipped with a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 260-horsepower and allows you to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
  • Subaru WRX: The Subaru WRX comes equipped with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 268-horsepower.
  • Subaru WRX STI: The lineup of WRX STI models come equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 305-horsepower.

What Are the Advantages of Turbocharged Boxer Engines?

Every Subaru Boxer engine already offers a number of advantages thanks to its horizontally-opposed engine design that sees the pistons face away from each other in a flat 180-degree layout. This layout makes for shorter piston strokes which results in a quicker response and less wasted energy. When you add in the turbocharged engine element, you get to take advantage of even more power. The name itself is enough of a tell, adding turbo to your naturally aspirated engine and using the exhaust gases to increase power and therefore speed. Another advantage of having a turbocharged engine is the power to size ratio. You can have a smaller engine in terms of displacement that can then produce much more power relative to its size when it's turbocharged. This also allows you to save on fuel economy, having say a 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer engine that produces 260-horsepower in the Ascent and achieves an impressive fuel economy rather than having a vehicle fitted with a V8 or even V6 engine that doesn't achieve the same level of fuel economy.
