Subaru has built a strong reputation making reliable, sporty, and safe cars. The automaker’s spectrum ranges from compact commuter cars to full-size family SUVs, so Subaru has options for everyone. Coming standard with the famous symmetrical all-wheel-drive, all Subarus have enhanced ride stability and plenty of outdoorsy tech. Thanks to their excellent reliability and safety ratings, Subarus are sought-after across the world. In this blog, we’re shortlisting the 5 best Subaru models you can find on Salvagebid.
2017 Subaru Forester
A long-time best-selling Subaru, the Forester, falls just behind two leaders of the SUV segment in the US: the Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue. 2016 and newer Foresters are known for their exceptional safety records, achieving multiple Top Safety Pick awards by the IIHS. The Forester is the best Subaru for younger drivers because of a variety of electronic assistance: that’s why we mentioned it in our article, “Best Cars For Teens”. A 2.5L boxer-engine mated to a CVT gets 29 mpg combined in the 2020 model, making the Forester one of the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid compact SUVs.
This Subaru Forester heads to auction on 1/6 from Denver, CO.
2016 Subaru Outback
The best-rated Subaru SUV is known for its welcoming space and superb practicality for camping. A rugged style along with the standard AWD guarantee the possibility to reach a far-off destination during weekends without sacrificing comfort. A state-of-the-art safety system is standard on all trims. The Outback is available with a 2.5L engine (shared with the Forester) or with a 3.6L six-cylinder. The 3.6L models offer one of the best towing capabilities among competition: up to 3,000 lbs.
