If you are shopping for an all-wheel-drive Subaru, which is the most reliable, dependable model that will last the longest? New car shoppers and used car buyers are looking for the best value and can know which vehicles will be on the road longer than other models. A new report from IHS Markit, now part of S&P Global data, reveals which Subaru models last the longest.
One Subaru SUV has the most model years that are still on the road today. The data reported by S&P Global’s recent research data reveals that 96 percent of all Subaru models sold over the last ten years are still on the road. The data is based on IHS Markit research on vehicles in operation as of June 30, 2022, for model years 2013 to 2022 versus the total new registrations of those vehicles.
How reliable are Subaru vehicles over the last ten years, and which model has lasted the longest?
The Subaru Outback midsize SUV takes the longest-lasting crown but not by much. The data says that 97 percent of Outback vehicles sold over the last ten years are still on the road today.
Subaru Forester is the second longest-lasting Subaru model
The Subaru Forester compact SUV is right behind the Outback, with 96 percent of the compact SUVs sold over the last ten years still on the road today.
The Subaru Impreza compact sedan and hatchback models and the Subaru Legacy sedan are the next longest-lasting models. S&P Global says 95 percent of Impreza and Legacy models from 2013 to 2022 are still on the road today.
What is the longevity of the Subaru WRX, WRX STI, and Subaru BRZ?
The performance of Subaru WRX and STI is still above 90 percent. The report says 93 percent of the sport-tuned WRX and performance-tuned WRX STI vehicles sold over the last ten years are still on the road today.
What is the lowest performing model?
Do BRZ owners drive the sports car harder than other models? The report says 86 percent of BRZ sport coupes are still on the road. Surprisingly, the BRZ is Subaru’s lowest performing model in longevity.
Where does the Subaru Crosstrek rank in longevity?
The S&P Global report does not rank the Subaru Crosstrek subcompact SUV. We know it’s rated one of the most reliable Subaru models by Consumer Reports. The Subaru Ascent 3-Row family hauler was new in 2019, and there is not enough data on the midsize SUV.
Overall, S&P Global and IHS Markit data reveals that 96 percent of 2013 to 2022 model year Subaru vehicles sold over the last ten years are still on the road today. The Subaru Outback ranks best.
