It means Subaru paid a lot of money to an ad agency to come up with a
moniker.  ;-)

And what the hell does (Subaru's) *synchronous* all-wheel drive mean???

So I have to laugh at each "new" "patented" AWD system.
 The latest is BMW's xDrive. It's patented you know. Varies torque
infinitely. Starts at 35/65 f/r. Gee, ground breaking marketing, eh?
 When was Quattro first mass produced? 1980?
 I tried unsuccessfully to find some sort of technical review of xDrive.
 I think the term "xDrive" is the only thing patented.
