Subaru was recognized by ALG®, which determines the predicted percentage of original price that a vehicle is expected to retain after a three-year period. For the third year in a row, Subaru won the Mainstream Brand Residual Value Award. In addition, Legacy and Outback received individual segment awards (for the Midsize Car and Midsize Utility Vehicle categories, respectively).
Kelley Blue Book® (KBB®) named Outback best resale value for 2012 in its Wagon category. KBB’s projections for resale value (with the vehicle in average condition and having 75,000 miles) are based on current vehicle data, sales data, market conditions, segment competition, economic expectations, and experience.
