“We are pleased with our start to 2017,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “We have a busy year ahead of us with the launch of the all-new 2018 Crosstrek this summer and the 3-row SUV debuting later in the year. We are confident of setting another record in 2017 for Subaru in the U.S.”



“We are appreciative our retailers could deliver a best-ever March not only for Outback and Forester, but for the WRX/WRX STI as well,” said Jeff Walters, senior vice president of sales for Subaru of America. “Also, the all-new Impreza continues to impress and we expect it will continue to build on its positive momentum.”

Winners have the best combination of positive reviews from professional car critics, safety ratings, space, and available tech features. In addition, the 2017 Impreza was one of 12 vehicles to earn the Autotrader “2017 Must Test Drive Award.” Autotrader's editorial experts choose the winners of the annual Must Test Drive Awards based on a diverse set of criteria.
