Subaru's cars and SUVs are renowned for providing excellent practicality, safety, reliability, and comfort. But you don't have to take our word for it; Subaru's awards and accolades speak for themselves.

This month, Consumer Reports—an independent nonprofit that "works for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace—released its annual list of "Best and Worst Car Brands," which saw Subaru jump two spots into first place. Subaru scored 81 points overall, three more than Mazda and BMW in a tie for second.

In tallying the overall scores, Consumer Reports considers four primary factors:

  • Predicted Reliability ratings are based on problems reported by members in the CR Annual Auto Survey.
  • Owner Satisfaction ratings come from surveyed CR members who say they'd purchase the same vehicle again.
  • Safety reflects available crash-test results from organizations like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with additional points awarded for advanced crash-prevention technologies. All Subaru models with a Lineartronic® transmission come standard with Subaru EyeSight® driver aids like Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, Lane Keep Assist, and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering.
  • Road Test is the result of more than 50 hands-on tests and evaluations.
