Subaru model availability

Subaru Corporation announced that its Japan factory vehicle production decreased 24.0 percent in January for the first time in 10 months. Subaru typically makes model changes to start the new year.

The U.S.-specification Subaru Crosstrek, Forester, WRX, and BRZ are manufactured in Japan. Subaru reported a 17.8 percent decline in its export total in January, the first decrease in 6 months.

Subaru of Indiana Automotive, which produces the Outback, Ascent, Impreza, and Legacy, saw its third consecutive month of decrease (19.5 percent) in new vehicle production.

While the Subaru average vehicle transaction prices are dropping, Subaru Crosstrek, Outback, Forester, and other new model inventory will remain tight this spring.

Subaru shifts production of the 2024 Crosstrek Sport and Limited trim levels to the U.S. plant for the first time. As a result, next-generation Crosstrek deliveries should improve as they begin to arrive this summer.
