[Canada] Three Subaru Models Named in 2015 Top Picks

(MISSISSAUGA) - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) today confirms that three Subaru models rank in the top ten of the 2015 top picks, named in a leading consumer publication. The publication's list highlights standout models in 10 popular car categories.

Subaru is proud of its strong results as the only manufacturer to have three models make the list. Subaru's standouts include the Subaru Forester, Legacy and Impreza. To make the list, all picks must meet stringent criteria based on road testing, reliability and safety.

This latest acknowledgement adds to Subaru's suite of recent accolades: The 2015 Subaru Legacy was most recently named overall Canadian Car of the Year by AJAC (Automobile Journalists Association of Canada). The Subaru Forester, Legacy and Impreza all earned a TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS for front crash prevention by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). In fact, Subaru is the only manufacturer to have all of its models named a TOP SAFETY PICK by the IIHS for six consecutive years (2010-2015). When equipped with EyeSight, five different Subaru models - the Legacy, Outback, Forester, Impreza, and XV Crosstrek - meet the tougher standards for front crash prevention required and earn the coveted 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation.

"Subaru's unwavering commitment to quality, safety, performance and durability provides an unsurpassed level of confidence behind the wheel," said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "Acknowledgement from leading publications and industry groups add yet another layer of confidence for Canadians considering Subaru ownership."
