You would probably expect to hear from us at Lester Glenn Subaru that buying a Subaru marks a strong investment. While we certainly see our Toms River Subaru dealership as a source you can trust, we thought you might want to hear it from a third party as well.

That’s why we’re proud to announce that the Subaru brand claimed the coveted Best Resale Value Brand Award for the second year in a row. In addition, four Subaru models earned Best Resale Value Awards in their respective vehicle segments.

  • The 2016 Subaru Impreza was recognized with the Best Resale Value Award in the Compact Car segment.
  • The 2016 Subaru Forester was awarded a Top 10 Best Resale Value.
  • The 2016 Subaru WRX received a Best Resale Value Award in the Sporty Compact Car segment with a Top 10 rating.
  • The 2016 Subaru Legacy earned a Best Resale Value Award in the Mid-Size Car segment.

Best Resale Value Awards are presented to 2016 model-year vehicles in recognition of their projected retained value throughout a five-year ownership period. A vehicle’s depreciation is the leading expense associated with a driver’s ownership experience, and the Best Resale Value Awards honor those vehicles that go farthest in preserving excellent value over time. The awards are also shared with the public as a means of helping new car shoppers make smarter car-buying decisions.

This year’s awards captured the 14th year that Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide projections have assisted the organization in providing in-market car buyers with the information they need to make a decision that will benefit their happiness and wallets in the long term.

Kelley Blue Book® Residual Value data is gathered by automotive analysts after a careful review of statistical models gleaned from millions of transactions. Award winners are ultimately those vehicles that receive the highest five-year residual value figures, which is presented as a percentage of their initial Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRPs).
