Subaru of America, Inc. today announced that two Subaru models have earned the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards in their respective segments.  ALG, part of J.D. Power, serves as the industry benchmark for forecasting vehicle values and depreciation data.
 
  • 2022 Forester – Best Compact Utility

“We are thrilled that Forester and WRX earned top spots in their segments,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “Subaru strives to consistently offer reliable and capable vehicles that our customers trust to transport their families safely, while retaining their value for years to come.”

The J.D. Power 2022 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards recognizes vehicles in 29 segments predicted to maintain the highest percentage of the Manufacturers’ Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) after three years. The award process consists of evaluating 284 models through analysis of used-vehicle performance, brand outlook and product competitiveness. Eligibility for a brand award requires a manufacturer to have model entries in at least four different segments. To account for differences across trim levels, model averages are weighted based on percentage share relative to the entire model line.
