iSeeCars Best Cars Of 2023 – Two Unlikely Subaru Models Score First Place


What are the best Subaru models of 2023? According to a new report from iSeeCars, the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek, Forester, Outback and Impreza are among the best new models for new car buyers this year.

The Impreza compact car and the Crosstrek Hybrid are the models least likely to win first place if the score is based on unit sales. Subaru of America is selling very few 2023 Crosstrek plug-in hybrid trim levels because the price is too high compared to the standard Crosstrek trim level. The 2023 Impreza needed a model change, and sales fell as customers waited for the next-generation model.

The iSeeCars ranking is based on data-driven analysis of each vehicle’s reliability, resale value, and safety score, so two Subaru models rank first. iSeeCars said: “We analyzed data from over 12 million new and used cars in Longest-Lasting Cars and 5-Year Depreciation Studies, combined with NHTSA safety ratings to provide an unbiased guide to the best cars in each segment. .”

After evaluation, the vehicle with the highest average score gets a spot in the iSeeCars Best Car Ranking. According to iSeeCars, Reliability accounts for 33.3% of the score, Retention Rate 33.3%, and Safety Score 33.3%.
