ALG Recognizes Subaru as Top Mainstream Brand


Not once, not twice - not even five times - but rather, six, Subaru has been recognized as the top mainstream brand by ALG. The analytics division of TruCar Inc., ALG predicts future vehicle values and depreciation figures. Due to the low overall expected depreciation of such a high percentage of the new 2018 Subaru lineup of vehicles, ALG has recognized the automaker as the "top mainstream brand" for 2018.

Five Winning New Subaru Models

Helping in Subaru's recognition as ALG's top mainstream brand, five new Subaru cars and SUVs have received the ALG Residual Value Award this year, across multiple vehicle classes. These include best compact car, best sports car, best compact utility vehicle, best subcompmact utility vehicle, and best 2-row midsize utility vehicle. In order, the new Subaru models recognized under these vehicle classes are:


  • Subaru Impreza
  • Subaru WRX
  • Subaru Forester
  • Subaru Crosstrek
  • Subaru Outback


Ranking Criteria

ALG bases its residual value predicted calculations on a three-year period. Thanks to Subaru's high-rankings this year, its total ALG Residual Value Award count since 2010 jumps to thirty-one. As mentioned, Subaru has been recognized as the Top Mainstream Brand six times now, with the other five instances having occurred in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016. In the words of Jim Nguyen, president of ALG, “Legions of enthusiastic owners have transformed Subaru from a niche alternative brand to the envy of the automotive industry, boasting sales increases that continue to fall short of ever growing demand."

Subaru isn't planning on resting on its laurels anytime soon. In a statement to that effect, Thomas J Doll, President and COO of Subaru of America, Inc. said this: “These awards underscore our commitment to providing customers with vehicles made to the highest standards of safety, reliability and dependability.”
