Cherry Hill, N.J., -  Subaru of America, Inc. has earned six awards from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. Five Subaru models took home awards in six areas:

• Subaru Outback named “Best in Class” in the wagons category
• Subaru BRZ wins “Most Fuel-Efficient” award in sports car category
• Subaru Forester 2.5X recognized for “Best Resale” among small crossovers

• Subaru Impreza awarded “Worth a Look” recognition for cars under $20,000
• Subaru Legacy awarded “Worth a Look” recognition for cars priced $20,000 to $25,000

Kiplinger’s evaluated 2013 models by price and category and ranked them for value, performance and safety. The magazine names top models in ten categories, including picks for Best in Class and Best New Models. Kiplinger’s also highlights five additional vehicles in each category as Worth a Look, indicating they scored high enough to be in contention for the top awards.

The Subaru Outback has earned a place in Kiplinger’s rankings every year since its 2010 redesign. According to Kiplingers, the Outback “blends surefooted handling, oodles of interior space and off-roading cred with plenty of power.” The 2013 Outback was also named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
