Yes, Subarus are all wheel drive at all times. You are never in two-wheel drive.

And some older models have VDC vehicle dynamic control which is essentially similar to traction control. This is extremely helpful specially on snow, it gives you better control, but it does not give you license to drive erratically.

Here's some more information on this subject. By the way, no other car manufacturer knows more about all wheel drive than Subaru. They've been perfecting this technology since 1972. http://www.cnet.com/news/not-every-subaru-all-wheel-drive-system-is- created-equal/
