Believe it or not, Subaru actually started when several different Japanese-based companies formed to create Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd in the 1950s. The company had an automotive division, which they chose to name Subaru (the Japanese word for “unite”).
It wasn't until 1954 that the Subaru brand revealed their first car: the Subaru 1500 (originally named the P-1). The company experienced financial issues from the get-go, but would have their issues resolved by 1958, which was the same year they released the Subaru 360.
The Subaru 360, also known as the Ladybird, became a hit in Japan. As the 1960s flew by, the Subaru brand created their first truck and compact van. It was 1966 that they debuted one of their best innovations yet: the front-wheel-drive system coupled to a horizontally opposed engine.
Subaru is known for other innovations as well, including the first electronically controlled continuously variable transmission the world has ever seen. The Legacy eventually replaced the GL/DL, and the company even started to make a name for themselves in motorsports in the 1990s.
The Subaru brand comes with a wide range of benefits, but three of the most important benefits to buyers are their commitment to safety, their symmetrical all-wheel drive capability, and their BOXER engine.
