By adjusting the SI-DRIVE system mode converter on the center console, the driver can freely choose personalized driving performance according to road conditions and personal preferences, and experience the new meaning and fun of “free choice”. For Subaru, the birth of the SI-DRIVE system is definitely a revolutionary technological innovation.
