Why Subaru Is One of The Top 5 Car Brands

By a Verblio Writer

(346 words)

According to the 2015 Car Brand Report Cards by Consumer Reports, one of the Top 5 car brands is Subaru. Although Subaru tied for fourth place, with only two points separating second and fourth place, and only five points separating fourth place from first place, it was a tight competition for the Top 5 car brands. The rankings were based on road-test scores as well as predicted reliability with several Subaru vehicles doing extremely well overall. Even though Subaru as a brand did not take the top spot, it is the brand with the most vehicles in Consumer Reports’ 10 Top Picks of 2015 and one of only two brands (Toyota, with the Prius and Highlander, being the other) which got more than one vehicle in the 10 Top Picks listing.

The Subura Impreza got the award for the Top Compact Car. The Consumer Reports review of the Impreza said:

“The Impreza’s interior packaging is outstanding, especially when you put friends (who you want to remain your friends) in the backseat… The ride is more comfortable than in some pricier cars.”

The Subaru Legacy received the award for the Top Midsized Sedan and got a score of 89 out of 100. The Forester took the award for the best Small SUV and received a five out of five on reliability. Of course, there are many other great vehicles created by Subaru. For example, although the Outlander did not get a vehicle category award from Consumer Reports, it got U.S. News and World Reports’ 2015 Best Wagon for the Money and Best Wagon for Families Awards. Subaru as a whole was also given Kelley Blue Book’s 2015 5-Year Cost-to-Own Award for Best Brand as well as their 2015 Resale Value Award for Best Brand.
