Introduction

Subaru

Subaru of America was founded in 1968 as a Sales Marketing subsidiary of Subaru Corporation of Japan. In 1986 Subaru of America moved to its current Cherry Hill, NJ. Here, the 115,000 square-foot, seven-story structure serves as the company’s national headquarters. The company promotes Subaru vehicles, parts and accessories through a network of around 600 retailers all over the United States.
The Subaru vehicles are well-known for its durability, reliability, traction and “active safety”. All models are also equipped with unique SUBARU BOXER engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (on most), which makes them one of the highest repurchase-loyalty ratings in the U.S. market. Speaking of durability, 98% of Subaru vehicles produced and sold in the last 10 years are still on the road. Today, the Subaru product line includes the Impreza, WRX, STI, BRZ, Legacy, Outback, Forester, and Crosstrek. Also, Subaru is the 2017 Best Performance Brand according to the results of Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
