Subaru Earns Four Separate Awards at Chicago Auto Show
Sales have been increasing dramatically for Subaru over the last seven years. In fact, the brand first surpassed 500,000 in a year in 2014 and made a generous donation to charity to celebrate the occasion. Sales didn’t slow down last month either, when Subaru saw a near 25% improvement over January of 2014.
The Chicago Auto Show was the long-awaited confirmation that buyers have been making the right decision in these last seven years, the decision to switch to one of Subaru’s seven models (all of which are IIHS Top Safety Picks, with five having earned the Plus distinction). That’s because Subaru walked away with not one, not two, not even three, but four separate awards at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, demonstrating the true strength of its lineup.
Among Subaru’s Chicago Auto Show awards was the 5-Year Cost to Own Award for the Brand category. This award was given out by Kelley Blue Book and demonstrates the value of Subaru’s overall lineup.
The 2015 Subaru Outback snagged the 2015 Best Wagon for the Money Award. This distinction was given out by U.S. News & World Report.
Consumer Guide® Automotive gave the Subaru BRZ a Best Buy Award in the Sporty/Performance Car segment. This marks the second year in a row that the BRZ has dominated that category.
Finally, the 2015 Subaru Legacy nabbed the Drivers’ Choice Award for Best Family Sedan from MotorWeek. Subaru is especially proud of this award, as it marks a “strong launch for the all-new 2015 model.”
Congrats, Subaru. Our hats off to ya.
