The Subaru XV Crosstrek is home to one of the most innovative engine designs on the market.  Subaru developed the Subaru BOXER engine, which houses pistons that move horizontally, rather than vertically.  With pistons that move side-to-side, vibrations are cancelled out and the vehicle can provide a much smoother and more enjoyable ride.  Additionally, the horizontal design offers enhanced balance and will last much longer than the 4-cylinder engine of the Nissan Rogue.
