Buying a Subaru could be one of the best moves you’ll make this year, particularly if it’s a vehicle that just arrived in the showroom. If you fancied an SUV, the “reward” could get even better as there are models to be had for a really good price. An article by Denis Flierl for Torque News states that this is especially true for the Forester, whose sticker value usually does not drop heavily a year after it hits the market.
Citing data from the NADA Used Car Guide’s recent vehicle retention report on revised or all-new units, Flierl gauged the potential of the 2014 Forester against other competitors for the 2014 model year. Analyses of the Forester 2.5i Premium showed that it retained 81.8% of its MSRP after a year. This earned for the car the second top spot in the Guide’s Top 20 resale listing against the Toyota Highlander LE (78.8%), Toyota 4Runner SR5 (77.1%), and Nissan Rogue S (73.1%) – with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe 1LT leading the pack at 84.7%.
