Widely acknowledged as Canada's "go-to provider" of present and future vehicle values, CBB distributes its values in various formats to dealers, insurance companies and financial institutions as well as consumers on its website.
"Depreciation has always been the single greatest cost of vehicle ownership," said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada. "With 2014 marking the fifth consecutive year that the Subaru Outback has earned the Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award, it is clear that our commitment to the four pillars of the Subaru brand - safety, versatility, performance and durability - is why more customers than ever are choosing a Subaru."
