Citing impressively redesigned models over the past several years, Consumer Reports has honored Subaru with the top spot in its annual automaker report cards.
The independent product-tester awarded Subaru a score of 75, two points higher than last year, on the back of redesigned models such as Impreza, Legacy, and Outback; Consumer Reports noted that the 2012 Impreza tops its small-sedan class and is its Consumer Reports Top Pick in that category.
Honda, the winner for four years running, slipped to fourth place in Consumer Reports rankings, behind Mazda and Toyota. The top five spots are held by Japanese automakers.
