Learn All About the Awards Won by the 2019 Subaru Model Lineup

2019 Subaru WRX Awards

Our brand has earned so many awards on both the model level and the brand level for 2019. Subaru has not only won the Top Mainstream Brand in the ALG Residual Value Awards for the 7th time & the 4th straight year, but Subaru was also named as Kelley Blue Book’s Best Brand during their 5-Year Cost to Own Awards & their Most Trusted Brand 5 years running.

Not to mention that Subaru is the highest-scoring mass-market brand on J.D. Power's 2019 U.S. Automotive Brand Loyalty Study. I'm sure part of it has to do with having more IIHS Top Safety Pick+ recipients than any other brand by a far margin because of the use of EyeSight driver assistance technology & steering responsive headlights.

But, our models have received even more accolades because of their top-notch safety, value over time, how well they cater to families and much more. With that being said, let’s take a look at all of the recognition that our 2019 model-year vehicles have earned.
