Eventually, you’ll need to sell your current vehicle. And whether it’s three, five or even ten or more years from now, you’ll want to have a vehicle that’s held its value and can help you recoup your investment. That’s why each year, Kelley Blue Book puts out a list of the vehicles with the best resale value: those which are made of high-quality parts and materials that stand the test of time. We’re proud to say that for 2015, Subaru has won the award for overall brand with the best residual value, plus three individual awards in the compact, midsized and sporty compact car categories.
KBB.com praised Subaru for its versatility, wide appeal and value. “The Subaru appeal — smart ultra-practicality combined with one of the best low-traction all-wheel-drive systems around — wins fandom with new-car buyers and when resale time comes,” they write in their overview. KBB.com also notes the stellar sales Subaru has had over the past year, as it set sales records that have been unrivalled by the brand in decades and in some cases, as we’ve covered, ever. 2014 also marked a year in which every vehicle in the Subaru lineup was an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
KBB.com also gives individual awards to vehicles across a variety of categories, and there Subaru again made a distinct impression. The 2015 Subaru Impreza won for best compact car, where its value and fuel efficiency were cited as saving money at the beginning, middle and end of its lifespan. The midsized car award went to the 2015 Subaru Legacy, a car whose new-model-year redesign has been making waves since its debut. Finally, the 2015 Subaru WRX saw a win in the sporty compact car category, where its long list of standard features and impressive engine shot it ahead of the competition. Subaru also saw a second-place win in the hybrid SUV/crossover category for the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid.
2014 was a great year for Subaru, and with this announcement 2015 has started off on an equally phenomenal note. Come see any of these incredible cars at our Subaru dealership in Lakewood, NJ, and celebrate this latest victory with us!
