The 2019 Subaru Impreza won the 2019 Vincentric Best Value in America award in the Compact Hatchback segment. Having the highest resale value and lowest depreciation rate in its class contributed to the win. Also, in Vencentric’s 2019 Lowest Cost to Own in America recipients, Crosstrek and Outback have the lowest cost of ownership in their class. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek wins in the Compact SUV/Crossover class and the 2019 Subaru Outback takes the best in the Mid-Size SUV/Crossover class.
What does it mean for consumers?
Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Using a statistical model, winners were identified by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus D.C. using a range of annual mileage intervals and insurance profiles.
“Purchasing a new vehicle is a large investment, so acquiring a vehicle that delivers high value is a sound financial strategy,” said Vincentric President David Wurster. “By analyzing all of the costs that occur when owning a vehicle, we’re able to provide unique insight to help buyers find a vehicle that meets their needs while also providing award-winning value.”
Subaru’s second-generation 2019 Crosstrek crossover and Impreza compact 5-Door hatch each have undergone complete makeovers getting the Subaru Global Platform, while the 2019 Subaru Outback is due for a complete remodel. Subaru will be announcing an all-new 2020 Outback model soon. Stay tuned.
