Our Subaru Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

Subaru ranks first (#1) in retained value after 3 years of ownership, and places a strong second after 5 years. Subaru earns this high ranking with great performances from its BRZ, Impreza and Outback models. Subarus have consistently held their value better than virtually all other car lines over the years, and are a clear choice for those looking for long-term value. Pair that with their safety and reliability records, and you can't go wrong buying one of these new or used.

The 2018, 2016 & 2017 Subaru model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 75% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Subaru. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 8.43 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2017 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Already Own a 2018 Subaru?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
