(MISSISSAUGA) - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is proud to announce that 2,390 units were sold in February, the highest sales for that month in the company's history. Subaru's record-breaking momentum continues to build, supported by a 26.5 percent increase in monthly sales over last February and a year-to-date increase of 27.2 percent over 2013.
