- Subaru Crosstrek wins Best Retained Value in SUV: Main Compact/Sub-Compact category
- Subaru Impreza finishes second in Car: Main category
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 11, 2021 /CNW/ – Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is excited to announce that Subaru Crosstrek has won in its category of SUV: Main Compact/Sub-Compact for the Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Awards. This demonstrates the long-term value of Subaru products, a factor important to the decision-making process of purchasing a vehicle. The Subaru Impreza finished second in the Car: Main category.
The Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Awards acknowledge vehicles that retain the highest percentage of their original MSRP after four years. This is extremely valuable information for consumers, given that depreciation is the single largest expense of vehicle ownership. For November 2021, the awards program analyzed model year 2018 cars, trucks, and SUVs in 19 categories.
“Our strategic planning always includes providing long-lasting value to our customers,” said SCI chairman, president and CEO Yasushi Enami. “Awards like these give us confidence that our goals are being achieved.”
With a refresh and the addition of the new Outdoor trim level, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek was named Best Small Utility in Canada for 2021 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) as well as TOP SAFETY PICK (on models with EyeSight and specific headlights) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
