Subaru Dominates in KBB’s “10 Best AWD Vehicles under $25,000“! Subaru won in KBB’s Brand Image Awards earlier this year taking the top spot forBest Overall Brand, Most Trusted Brand, and Best Performance Brand, but now KBB has awarded specific specific models for their affordability and durability. Read on to see why Subaru stole all the top spots in this list by the experts at Kelley Blue Book.
Coming in sixth, the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek has been named one of the Best AWD Vehicles under $25,000. The editors explain, “Demonstrating the same expert touch as a master mixologist, the Subaru Crosstrek blends the size and efficiency of a 5-door hatchback with the added ground clearance and seating height of a small SUV. Like the four other Subarus ranked even higher on this list, the Crosstrek’s all-wheel drive system isn’t just superior, it’s standard.”
We shared this ranking for the Subaru Impreza in a recent blog post, but we’re happy to share the news again. According to Kelley Blue Book, the Subaru Impreza, which came in fourth, is “is the least expensive all-wheel drive vehicle in the country. Competing with small-car stalwarts like Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla is no easy task, but for many buyers the Impreza’s added traction is its trump card.”
The 2016 Subaru Legacy came third because it’s one of three midsize sedan models that offers all-wheel drive and its one of the cheapest available, starting at around $8,000 less than the competition.Coming in second, the 2016 Subaru Forester is described by Kelley Blue book as one of the most “capable entries” in the compact SUV segment because “It’s an efficient, convenient utility vehicle around town, but transforms into an unrelenting brute when the going gets tough.”
The top spot goes to the 2016 Subaru Outback. The experts at KBB share, “Mixing the sensibility of a midsize sedan, the ride height and cargo capacity of an SUV, and the go-anywhere confidence of Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive system, the Outback is arguably the most well-rounded vehicle on the road. It’s also more fuel-efficient and tech-savvier than ever, making it a compelling alternative for even more buyers.”
