Can Subaru’s symmetrical AWD save you from aquaplaning?

“If I wanted to fly, I would be a pilot”. Those are the words of legendary rally driver, Walter Röhrl, when he explained why he wasn’t a fan of jumps on rally stages. Similarly, if you wanted to go fast on water, you should be piloting a speed boat, not a car. Aquaplaning is what happens when you go too fast on a wet road on a rainy day.During a heavy downpour, your chances of a traffic collision increases. Cars spin out, crash into dividers, or even crash into other cars.
