        (MISSISSAUGA) - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to announce that it set an all-time monthly sales record in July. Total sales of 2,002 units were up 62.2 percent over last July, and beat the previous record, set in April of this year, by 32 units. It was the eighth consecutive month of sales growth for SCI.

        It was also a best-ever month for the Impreza lineup, as Canadians bought 1,012 of these affordable performance vehicles, a 95.7 percent improvement over the same month last year. Forester also made a significant contribution to the company's success in July, with 659 units beating last July's sales by 145.0 percent.

        "My congratulations to everyone at SCI and our dealerships for making sure car buyers know a Subaru is a great choice, especially when gas prices are high and purchasing dollars must stretch as far as possible," said Katsuhiro Yokoyama, president and CEO of SCI. "We've worked hard to ensure that Subaru offers vehicles that are fuel-efficient, versatile and safe-without giving up exhilarating performance. Now is the time when that strategy will pay off for Subaru and consumers alike."
