Subaru Is Left Off The AutoPacific Best New Vehicle Satisfaction Awards List
AutoPacific announced the 2021 Vehicle Satisfaction Award winners, and according to the results, no Subaru models make the list this year. In 2020, the Subaru Forester ranked highest in the Midsize Crossover SUV category, but Subaru gets blanked in the 2021 awards.
AutoPacific’s annual New Vehicle Satisfaction Survey of 89,000 new car and light truck owners, identifies the most satisfying vehicles on the market as rated by the consumer.
In the Mid-Size Crossover SUV category, the Nissan Rogue is picked over the Subaru Forester. The Jeep Grand Cherokee takes the Midsize SUV category where the Outback resides. In the subcompact SUV segment, the Toyota C-HR wins where the Subaru Crosstrek is the top model.
In the Sports Car category where the Subaru BRZ competes, the Mazda MX-5 Miata wins. In the Sporty Car segment, the Chevrolet Camaro wins where the Subaru WRX and WRX STI reside.
