3 Subaru Models Win in KBB's 2017 Resale Value Awards

3 Subaru Models Win in KBB’s 2017 Resale Value Awards

By | Subaru News | No Comments

3 Subaru Models Win in KBB’s 2017 Resale Value Awards! Every year KBB released their Resale Value Awards, naming the best overall brand, the top 10 vehicles, and the best vehicles in their class. The winners are chosen based on resale value projections that utilize current vehicle data, sales data, market conditions for each vehicle, competition within vehicle segments, expectations of the future economy and the combined experience of Kelley Blue Book’s team of market and pricing analysts. The models that retain the most of their value over the first five months of new-vehicle ownership are distinguished from the rest by this award.

The editors at KBB explain the importance of the awards, “Over the first five years of new-car ownership, depreciation is the typical car owner’s biggest transportation expense. It’s bigger than the cost of fuel, the cost of maintenance or the cost of insurance. That loss in the value of your car will cost you thousands of dollars during your ownership period, but if you choose a vehicle with a strong resale value story, that cost will be much lower than if you pick a vehicle that plummets in value like a stone kicked off a cliff.”

Subaru topped the list in three categories and even had one model named in the Top Ten Vehicles for Resale Value. The first model, the 2017 Subaru Legacy, was named the best resale value in the Mid-Size Car segment. The editors share, “The Subaru Legacy grabs best resale value honors in the Midsize Car category for its third consecutive year, and adds a new Legacy Sport model that adds its own unique visual distinction. Along with Subaru’s signature boxer-style engines, all versions boast standard all-wheel drive that adds an extra measure of all-weather confidence to the mix. Complementing its solid reputation for long-term durability, the Subaru Legacy also offers an outstanding cost-to-benefit ratio. Pricing for the 2.5i starts under $23,000, which undercuts both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry while the primo 3.6R Limited opens at $32,460.”

In the compact car category, the 2017 Subaru Impreza took the top honor, with the experts explaining, “Completely revamped for 2017, the Subaru Impreza returns in sedan and hatchback form in a svelte new suit. Beyond a fresh exterior that signals Subaru’s latest design language, the 2017 Impreza is slightly larger than the outgoing model, which translates to more interior room. What hasn’t changed is its status as resale champion among compact cars, now marking its fourth year in a row. Starting at $19,215, the Impreza remains the least expensive car you can buy with all-wheel drive. Combined with its class-leading way of fighting depreciation, the latest Impreza can again add “excellent value” to its list of virtues.” 

Also named in the Top Ten Vehicles for Resale Value, the 2017 Subaru WRX won in the sporty compact car category. KBB writes, “As a racier expression of Subaru’s compact Impreza sedan the 2017 Subaru WRX blends rally-inspired performance with pragmatic design and class-leading resale values. If you’re muddling through your work week, a roomy, secure trunk and accommodating interior are handy features. But when the weekend arrives the WRX happily shifts roles, putting its sporting suspension and high-traction powertrain to good use. A base Subaru WRX runs about $27,500 and features an impressive equipment roster including automatic climate control, 17-inch wheels, a backup camera and touchscreen infotainment. That sum also includes aggressive fender flares, an equally aggressive front fascia, and a rear wing that can only be described as.aggressive. It looks the part. It plays the part. The Subaru WRX really is the total package.”

Subaru Named Best Brand in KBB's 5 Year Cost To Own Awards

Subaru Named Best Brand in KBB’s 5 Year Cost To Own Awards

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Subaru Named Best Brand in KBB’s 5 Year Cost To Own Awards! Recently the editors at KBB awarded Subaru as the best brand in their 5 Year Cost to Own awards writing, “Claiming its second such award in three years, the Subaru brand is strong and getting stronger. Famously favored by drivers living in the north and at elevation, Subaru’s cars and SUVs are increasingly appealing options in the rest of the country. While standard all-wheel drive remains a brand hallmark, excellent safety and long-term reliability are becoming well-known advantages. The lineup has also become more fuel-efficient, more stylish, tech-savvier and roomier over the past several years, providing multifaceted allure that’s resulted in year-after-year sales increases. Increased appeal leads to increased used car values, which helps drive down total ownership costs for new-car buyers and helps Subaru reach the top of this mountain again.” Factors such as financing, insurance and state fees, plus the anticipated costs of fuel, scheduled maintenance and repairs, purchase price, and projected depreciation are all taken into account when determining which vehicles and  brands are highlighted. 

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek also won in the Best Compact SUV/Crossover with the editors sharing, “The fuel-efficient powertrain, versatile cabin, adventure-ready attitude and bevy of features are available in the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek for a low entry fee. Add in Subaru’s strong reputation for quality and reliability, and you have a winning recipe for 5-Year CTO.”

Subaru Outback Named "Best Family Car of 2017"

Subaru Outback Named “Best Family Car of 2017”

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Subaru Outback Named “Best Family Car of 2017.” Recently KBB put together its annual list of “Best Family Cars of 2017.” This year, the experts realized that the only true family capable cars are SUVs and compiled it’s list without including any sedans: “As SUVs have grown more comfortable and more efficient over the years, families and car shoppers in general have demonstrated an increasing preference for the elevated driving position, superior cargo versatility and higher profile of SUVs. Each of our 12 Best Family Cars of 2017 offers a unique but similarly compelling combination of safety, value, versatility, amenities, comfort and drivability. Whether it’s the sliding doors and cavernous interior of a minivan or the high-riding nature and available all-wheel drive of an SUV, each of these vehicles is simply more functional as a family car than a traditional sedan.”

The cars were divided into three categories: Two-Row SUV, Three-Row SUV, and Minivan. The winners were determined by safety, value, reputation, driving manners, technology, child seats, cargo versatility, comfort, and convenience. Kelley Blue Book explains their testing procedures, “We compiled a list of last year’s winners and the best of the new and redesigned 2017 models and brought them all together for a back-to-back testing regimen. Ten editors spent two weeks driving, poking, prodding and researching all these vehicles. Our group includes several parents claiming a total of eleven children spanning a full range of ages including an adorable toddler, elementary, middle, high school and college students, and even a couple who’ve made it out into the real world. We put family cars under a group microscope once a year, but we live them every day.”

The editorial experts at KBB write about the 2017 Subaru Outback, “A multi-year Best Family Car award winner, the 2017 Subaru Outback is among the most practical, sensible and versatile vehicles money can buy. Many ingredients go into this Subaru’s secret sauce, from its standard all-wheel drive to its fuel efficiency, advanced safety features and stellar resale value. Each is impressive on its own. Combined, they make the Outback a standout.”
