When shopping for a new car, many consumers just look at the sticker price, but another factor that is important is what that car is worth in four years. According to Canadian Black Book (CBB), Subaru's SUV-alternative, the 2015 Outback, retains its value better than any other mid-size car. Outback gets the nod again and wins Canada’s Best Retained Value Award for the sixth year in a row.
