Subaru captures multiple 2012 ALG Residual Value Awards


Subaru has announced it has received three Residual Value Awards from ALG, the industry benchmark for residual values and depreciation data.

The ALG Residual Value Awards recognize annually the vehicles predicted to retain the highest percentage of original price after a three-year period.

The company claimed the title of Best Mainstream Brand for the third year in a row.

Subaru also earned Best Midsize Utility Vehicle and Best Midsize Car nods for 2012 Subaru Outback and 2012 Subaru Legacy, respectively.  

Award winners are determined through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance and industry trends.

Vehicle quality, production levels relative to demand and pricing and marketing strategies remain the key factors that affect ALG's residual value forecasts.
