The Subaru brand doesn't just attract drivers who are adventurous and love the outdoors. The Japanese automaker attracts drivers who want to get away from the city fast. The Subaru Outback Wilderness, Forester Wilderness, and Crosstrek Sport are designed for customers with active lifestyles, and those Subaru drivers like to get away from civilization.
A new report from Insurify identified the top five car brands with the most speeding tickets in 2022. We reached out to Insurify because Subaru wasn't in the top five, but they did come in as the sixth car brand with the most speeding tickets this year.
The five car brands with the most speeding tickets are unique, and some are not what you would expect. Scion holds the top spot 11.05 percent of drivers have a speeding ticket this year. Infiniti is next (10.75%), Volkswagen (10.66%), Saab (10.42%), and Audi 10.02% round out the top five.
Insurify told us, "Our data shows that 9.98 percent of Subaru drivers have a speeding ticket in 2022. That's 6th in the nation and 7 percent greater than the national average."
Last year, Insurify identified the top ten car models with the most speeding tickets, and Subaru had three vehicles on the list. It's no surprise that the Subaru WRX and WRX STI came in at number one for the third year. The WRX and STI attract a performance buyer in the 25-35-year-old age range who likes to drive fast.
The Subaru BRZ sports coupe was number five, and the Subaru Impreza was number nine in 2021.
Insurify says the national average in 2022 is 9.36 percent of drivers who have a speeding violation. Among the car brands with the highest speeding rates, the average share of drivers with a speeding ticket is 10.59 percent, or 13 percent higher than the national average.
Which car brand speeds the least? Insurify says drivers of Fiat cars are the most law-abiding motorists when it comes to vehicle speed. Just 7.09 percent of Fiat drivers have a speeding ticket on record, a share that's 24 percent lower than the national average.
"Fiat cars are not exactly performance vehicles, and their drivers have no issue keeping them under control on the road," says Insurify.
If you see a Subaru Forester, Outback, or Crosstrek driver exceeding the speed limit, they want to get away from the city and explore the outdoors as soon as they can. Subaru WRX and BRZ drivers bought their vehicle because it was designed for speed and performance.
