Subaru Tops Cost-to-Own Awards

By Staff Writer February 07, 2020

 

Kelley Blue Book named Subaru the 2020 model-year brand of its ninth annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. This is Subaru’s second consecutive year at the top of the list.

The awards recognize new vehicles with the lowest projected ownership costs over the initial five-year ownership period.

“Subaru claims the top brand position for the second year in a row, right on the heels of winning a Kelley Blue Book award for Best Resale Value Brand of 2020,” said Eric Ibara, director of 5-Year Cost to Own for Kelley Blue Book. “In addition, Acura claims the top luxury brand prize with several key models in its lineup performing well above the segment average in many vehicle ownership cost categories.”

Information is developed using Kelley Blue Book residual values to calculate depreciation costs. Kelley Blue Book calculates total ownership costs for new vehicles by applying a sophisticated valuation methodology along with critical financial data from third-party providers.
