Kelly Blue Book (KBB), the most trusted resource for vehicle resale information, has named Subaru its Best Resale Value Brand for 2020. It is Subaru's fourth KBB brand award, following wins in 2011, 2015 and 2016.

According to KBB, "Subaru has demonstrated its desirability both in the new and used market with its record for retained value."

Since it determines the final cost of ownership, KBB noted that resale value is among the most important criteria when purchasing a new vehicle.

The Best Resale Value Awards recognize the highest projected resale value for the initial five years of vehicle ownership. KBB's experienced analysts use statistical models to determine a vehicle's likely resale value based on depreciation data.

Subaru won the overall Best Resale Value Brand by placing five models in the top spot of their individual categories.

The 2020 Subaru Impreza was awarded Best Resale Value: Compact Car. KBB's editors said Impreza's "unbeatable combination of safety, reliability, capability, and affordability" made it the clear choice among compacts.

Impreza had won the award from 2015-18 but was edged out by Honda in 2019. KBB said that while "dethroning any Honda in any category is no small task," the Impreza is a "thoroughly impressive" vehicle.

The 2020 Subaru Legacy received the award for Best Resale Value: Midsize Car. It is the Legacy's second win in a row in the ultra-competitive Midsize category.

KBB's reviewers took special note of the Legacy's "state-of-the-art infotainment system, greatly improved interior materials and a robust new chassis" in determining its status.

The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek was named Best Resale Value: Subcompact SUV. KBB recognized Crosstrek's unique feature set that cannot be found in its competitors.

The 2020 Subaru Forester was honored as Best Resale Value: Compact SUV. KBB honored Forester's adventurous spirit, saying the crossover has a "penchant for the outdoors at its core."

The 2020 Subaru Outback received the nod for Best Resale Value: Midsize SUV, 2-row. The Outback's fresh tech and robust safety suites and its upgraded engine offerings especially caught KBB's attention.
